I once made page markers with thin wooden popsicle sticks, washi tape and marker pens. (See what I mean here: http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/81/de/0b/81de0b20035aa1e1a5c4d5c53ce571f3.jpg)

As for a question… What can I do with empty CD boxes of translucent plastic?

Frames for small art works? Containers for tiny scraps of paper (that every paper crafter seems to gather!)? Take the circle clip out and turn them into covers for small notebooks?


What can I do with the expanded polystyrene packaging for pears? (not round, not flat anywhere)

Polystyrene is great for stencils. Lay it out, flatten it out. Clip it if it does not want to lay flat. Perfect for ATC or other backgrounds such as making your own wrapping paper. Try it on newspaper for an ultimate background of things. Or on music sheets, or book pages. I use regular spray paint for the silhouette, but I am sure there are many other paints you could stencil with.

Or paste it {spray glue} to a piece of wood, or the end of a wine cork. Homemade rubber stamp  Grin For texture and backgrounds.

Now what do I do with all these puzzle pieces? Some fit together, and others are just orphans. I have made broaches with them in the past. And of course added them to journal pages and ATC. Any other ideas? I am thinking to string them into love beads.

A friend gave me some expanded polystyrene 'pear packaging.  It has pear shaped 'cups in it.  I cut them out and then stuck two together.  I covered them with paper mache and will eventually get around to painting them to look like pears to add to  my 'pot pourri' bowl.

I have just discovered egg shell decoupage.  Those puzzle pieces would look great covered in egg shells and then varnished.  Turn the end result into jewellery or card topper.

What can I do with the plastic caps from hairspray, funiture polish ec

Well, a bit late to the party  Grin This one got lost in my archives, but the caps are great for messy projects (painting or glue?) where they get a second purpose, and can be thrown away. And if they are the type of cap with the center porthole? Then you can have water and paint/glue in the same little cap.

What can I do with these? They're cardboard fax paper roll cores. They're thick, so they can't be bent.
I have a saw that I can chop them up.
So far, I've used them for some little trees.Any ideas?

What is the diameter?  Is it worth cutting up and making pen pots or desk organisers? If they are thin then you could use them as spokes and weave a tray/basket with newspaper.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Q: What would you make with an old pair of sunglasses that are all scratched up?
