Old Gift Cards as Paper Creasing Tool
Instead of tossing out used up gift cards or old credit cards that expired, you can use them as a paper creasing tool. They help you crease papers easily without hurting your fingers/nails. I keep a couple cards in my crafting area and they come in handy.
Stencils and Crayons for Making Etchings
Stencils make beautiful additions art! I have found that putting the stencil between two pieces of blank paper, and using a crayon over the stencil, makes a beautiful decoration for scrapbooks or art journals. This is also a fun activity for kids to do when they feel like being creative.
Recycled Cardboard Box as a Child's Canvas
I save all of my boxes from online orders to reuse. One usage is to treat a box like a canvas - fun and free outdoor activity your little ones can enjoy.
Don't Discard Weather Beaten and Discolored Outdoor Fixtures
Our dilemma was the case of the cream yellow fence caps with lights. When we purchased our fence (white), we also needed the caps to go on to the tops of the fence post. The caps were from a different provider and were great for the first 2 years. Then the caps began to turn more and more this creamy yellow color and the lights no longer worked.
Recycled VHS Tape Vase
I love my movies but it's just not practical to keep them. I have propped up beds, made shelves with them and today, it's a vase for faux flowers.
Use Notebook Spring to Sew Spiral Notebooks
Its always hard for lefties to write with spiral notebooks. Plus, I hate those springs as they get distorted over time inside my bag. So, I got used to removing the springs and replacing it with yarn.
Use Paper Scraps to Enhance Cards
My dear friends and I made 300 greeting cards to give to senior facilities. There were a lot of leftover paper scraps from all the shapes we were punching out. Instead of tossing them out, the leftovers ended up being a huge part of the stunning 3D shadowing of the cards by gluing them under other shapes of paper.
