Postcard journals


I am a huge fan of Design*Sponge; Derek & Lauren always come up with creative and very stylish ideas and tutorials. Here is another one; postcard journals. Very nice!

A basket from newspaper


Here is a lovely way to make a basket from a newspaper for your newspapers by Jeffery Rudell on Craftstylish.

Paper Mache Bluebird and Piggy Bank



Don’t you love these little paper mache figures? It is maybe a little bit of an advanced project but they are definately worth a try. You can find the bluebird and piggy bank instructions here and here.

Weaving magazine coasters


Here is a great recycling project for your old magazines; hop over to Fidgety Fingers for this tutorial on how to start weaving magazine coasters.

Pretty Paper Coaster/Trivets


Design*Sponge is sharing another great tutorial on how to make these pretty paper coasters.

Cereal Box Journal


The Long Thread‘s tutorial really shows the power of a simple rounded corner punch, turning a very basic recycling project into a stylish notebook.

Rolled paper wreath


This looks like a fun project, and a bold decorative piece for the home. The Rag and Bone blog has the details to make this wreath from rolled paper reeds.

Paper Mosaic mirror frame


This is such a good idea! Gail at CAN’T STOP MAKING THINGS recycled comic strips from the newspaper to make the above mirror frame, but any kind of colourful patterned papers would look equally effective when cut into squares like this. You could also use the same process to make a custom photo frame!

Mod Podged paper bowl


Jessica Jones from How About Orange is sharing a tutorial on how to make this pretty mod podged paper bowl.

Hurricane cover


Patricia from A Little Hut has done it again; this is her 16th idea for a recycling project: a hurricane cover. Oh so very stylish.
