One last quick Easter Project...and other projects below too!
Do you have a paper shredder? You know the ones that shred important documents so all your personal info isn't in the trash for all to see. Well, get that shredder out and do some crafting!
You can shred anything.
- old paper shopping bags
- magazines and catalogs
- old book pages
- old gift wrap
- construction paper
- those nasty little magazine inserts
My shredder...well, actually my dad's shredder, shreds it into long strips. Some have the option to cross cut too.
Turn a little pink construction paper into a little Easter grass.
Or how about old book pages.
Love the look of these.
Just take Styrofoam balls and some Mod Podge or white glue and...
start gluing all the strips on to cover. I am in the process of making several of these to fill up a pretty bowl or basket for the coffee table.
Don't forget recycled paper for quick and easy packing paper.
How about a pretty colored magazine?
Layer on some white glue or Mod Podge on the strips and roll the strips over a nail or screw.
Let it dry.
and now you have a great bead for jewelry making.
I love my shredder...uh my dad's shredder. Maybe he won't miss it. Shhh, don't tell him!!
Have a great day,
