Every week my recycle bin is boiling over with stuff and my trash can is quite sad; I should feel proud. However, I feel compelled to do something with these useless containers I send to be remade.
With a little help from some creative minds across the web I have found ways to salvage some of these items from the recycle bin. Here are five stellar ideas to help you be the best up-cycled crafty crafter you can be:
Paperboard: Cereal Box

With any hope these fun and creative projects will get your inspiration flowing. Now I'm off to work in the studio for another day of high productivity.
