This is one of my favorite things. Recycling old papers and magazines. Magazines make for more colorful projects. I just glanced thru these ideas and they appear very easy and take very little to turn out done mighty unique and pretty items. I can't wait to get working on them with my grand daughter.

Here is an article definitely worth pinning! There are so many great ideas I had to save this for later. I will be referring to this many times I m sure. We pile up those magazines at our house we can't bear to recycle them, and the towers of old magazines are becoming over whelming. Not anymore thanks to these awesome ideas. Thanks

Using your used materials can save you cash instead of buying new one. Recycling like used plastic bottle is one way process to create new things. In some states, recycling fraud occur when a law regarding on recycling the plastic bottled passed. Your search is over, all of the info you need is at

what ever happened to the angel that you make out of your phone book? Doesnt anyone do that one anymore I am sure that one can be changed around to be more festive for christmas

it sounds like fun. I have never seen anything made from mag. I would like to find a pattern if u can help me. thank you, jeannie

hahaha thats too funny! that is my post on crafters!... the magazine bag! here is the updated version though. and by updated i mean still yearrrsss old.

When I click on: 10 Things to Do with Old Wine Bottles, I am taken to the home page. I have tried left clicking same results. I have tried right clicking, asking it to open in a new tab as well as a new page same results. Is this web site no longer available? Thanks.

There is no mention of beadmaking with magazines. It can really make beautiful beads. I first found out about it from a gift from a friend. In other countries, women are making them to provide for their families.

Yes!! I agree! You can make the coolest paper beads.All you do is cut the paper in the shape of a long triangle.Glue the end and make sure it doesn't unwind.You can use a pencil,sewing hook or wood dowel as your tool to wind the paper around.You start at the wide end and tightly wind around the "pencil" till the pointed end comes last.After the glue has dried,then cover the bead w/h a acrylic sealer.Let dry at least 24 hrs.This is a great craft for kids!!

When you click into the article, you also need to click on "garbage can" in the 2nd paragraph and it will take you to the site that gives you instruction and pictures. It's a beautiful craft and I'm going to give it a try!

When you go the site for the trash can, it doesnt really give youany intruction on what to do! I was really disappointed.
