Stated in the title, I have TONS of items I could use, but either no ideas or ideas, but no supplies to make the craft (like a glue gun, drill, kiln, etc. stuff like that). Well, here's my loot:

-Bottlecaps (2)
-Cardstock (2 packs)
-Tacky and Elmer's Glue (1 of each)
-Wine Bottle Corks (4 or 5 I think)
-Piece of Cardboard (2)
-Black Wire (1 roll)
-Masking Tape (1 roll)
-Duct Tape (1 roll)
-Magazines (5)
-Clothespins (5 I think)
-Puzzle Pieces (Numerous pieces)
-2-inch Yarn Pieces (LOTS)
-Extra Hemp (Not big enough for jewelry)
-Acrylic and Watercolor Paint (1 large "kit" of Watercolor and 6-7 bottles of Acrylic)
-Watercolor, Tracing, Sketch, Etc. Paper (1 pad of each)
-Scrapbooking Stickers (1 pack)

And I probably have tons more, but I can't remember all of it. Help?

Maybe you could get a small rug making canvas and make an awesome recycled rug withh all the yarn peices you have?

And if you have a boring looking peice of furniture or something you could cut out some nice pictures from those magazines modge podge a collage onto it?

You could make some greetings cards with your card stock magazine cuttings and scrap book stickers?

or some books marks, then you could punch a hole in the top of the book mark and string some yarn through.

or maybe spme artistic recycled pictures? with your card stock and yarn and paint? cover the yarn in paint and slap in down on the card, looks pretty with lots of colours, and its fun to do with kids.

Hope this helped :_) give me a sec and more will come :p
