What about an open challenge where the only stipulation is the main item MUST be found on the side of the road? At the dump wouldn't count.

Spring cleaning is coming up in about 2 months in my town. LOTS of amazing things to be found on the side of the road during large-item-pickup week.

Eco Friendly craft tags/shipping tags!

Today I thought Id share a little tutorial with you all. I need tags for my craft, as everything cost money and crafting should be fun, not something to burden you personal finances. I looked around if I could buy customized shipping tags, but it would be expensive in the long run, also not eco friendly.  I took the decision to make my own tags without spending "mucho dinero" and save the environment while doing it!


1.  Materials
               Cutting equipments
               Woven heavy fusible interfacing, cost about 8$/m (I used about 20x40 cm)
               Small pieces of fabric leftovers
               Rubber stamp and ink pad
               Puncher
               Paper string or elastic string

Hi! This is my first post evarrr!
I got a promotional Pabst toothbrush at a show a while back, it wasn't anything spectacular a lot like the kind you get from going to the dentist cheapy thing that says Pabst Blue Ribbon on it. Anyways, I boiled it filed off the bristles and shaped it into a bracelet. Its pretty nifty and people seem to enjoy that it used to be a toothbrush if only for the fact that it shows my love for PBR. LOL! Now what to do with this six pack ring...

Maybe an idea involving bathroom plastics?  I'm thinking, deodorant containers, shampoo bottles, disposable razors, plastic toothbrushes...  I can't seem to think of anything useful to do with any of those things, and it seems like something that almost everyone would have some of.

That's an idea. I like the making stuff out of packaging idea, too.
Or, how about making art? Made out of stuff that would normally be thrown away? Not necessarily a piece to hang on the wall. Sculpture would work, heck, anything that could be called art.
Or a spring themed challenge? Stuff for a garden?

Hubcaps!
They Are EVERYWHERE!!!!...must be because of those nasty potholes nearby.
I started picking them up and hanging them from the branches on a nearby tree. Now, it looks funny...must post a pic  Grin

They have cool swirly things on them. It would be kinda neat as a stepping stone or something, hmm...

Why don't we have a challenge using plastic grocery bags. I saw a great episode of Sesame St. where they washed the bags, cut them into strips and then wove beautiful totes. I think that many neat things could be made using this technique.

Ideas??

How about something using those styrofoam meat trays that can't be recycled...that bugs me. - just venting.

We use these as paint pots. Some of our fruits and veggies come on these as well so we end up with a bunch. You can just let the left over paint dry and it looks pretty neat Smiley

So do I!! Along with lids from those storage bowls that always seem to disappear, yet the lid hangs out in the drawer. O_o
