In the past couple of weeks I had been looking for ways to use some scraps of fabric I had and a bunch of used and washed teabags.I decided to make some gifts for my penpals that would be completely made of repurposed materials. This was my attempt of a Did-It-Myself (DIM) and finally I came down to these:

The #Recycling Association named Pringles tubes and Lucozade Sport bottles in a list of products that pose the biggest challenges for #reuse. The greater the number of materials used in #packaging, the harder it is for recycling machines to separate them. Head to read the article: http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-39953209
Hi everybody! Thank you for passing by 🙂
This week I’ve been in a crafty mood. I made my own recycled paper (more like cardboard 😂) to send some Christmas handmade cards for my penpals and friends reusing scraps from materials I had (below each photo I leave you the link to where I got the idea from with the tutorial). I’m not the great crafter, but I like how rustic these cards look thanks to the materials I used (and my clumsiness 😛 ). Also, they are easy and may be a fun activity to make with kids.
Hope you get inspired!
Remember our post about 💚 Reusing Wine Cork and 💚 Reusing Glass Bottles? (If you haven’t already, go check them out because there are even more ideas!) This infographic is complementary to those, only summarised and pictured as an infographic showing 2 ways how to cut the glass bottles and 5 ideas how to repurpose them.
“Everything can be used in one way or another and be given a new purpose and life in your home so don’t be in a rush to throw things away. We do live in a consumerist society where money and assets have become our primary goal in life but just because we buy new things everyday it does not mean the old ones are useless. Find creative ways to reuse them, adapt their function and obtain new beautiful items for your home and garden. Make beautiful wine bottle centerpieces or glass lamps and chandeliers; cut them to make candle holders and unique food plates. Just let your imagination do the work for you and be creative.“
