Try donating them to a rec center like the YMCA, they most have some place where they do summer crafts. it's worth a try.

Hi:

Just a couple of suggestions:

This can be as sophisticated as the beads you make. Color coordinate them and add exotic beads in between. You'll have custom coordinated beads for all your outfits.

While this is for a Valentine, casting paper for art or cards applies to all seasons of the year:

Good luck with your recycling efforts. Some areas are just slower than others, but eventually they all begin to see the benefits if enough people make noise.

i agree with a couple of the previous suggestions.

1) public school art rooms.  art programs are notoriously underfunded in most public school systems, so those art teachers will take what they can get.

2) petition your city council and/or county board to start a better recycling program.  you may need to do a little research, because the first thing they will want is dollars and cents.  do a search of other, similar size cities and their programs for comparison of cost and benefit.

well, i read that you had paper mache, and as a broke college student, you could make things using your recycled products, such as purses, bags, gift bags, (from paper or cardboard items, make beads (out of plastic items held under a hair dryer or above a candle, look on google for better explanation) or make pinatas! (Blow up a balloon and then paper mache the outside.
