How to Make Colorful Paper Roses

Here are some spiral roses that I made with hot pink paint stain.  I used blue paper, purple, yellow, and cream papers with the same paint.    

Here is a box full of spiral roses made from stained paper.  

This is a tag I made using three pink stained spiral roses.  These roses would be great on cards as well.

Crafts Made From Recycled Materials: Catalog and Magazine Crafts

This Star and Heart were made from recycled catalogs.  

After creating the star, I pray painted it gold and added acrylic beads.  

I found the gold frame at my local dollar tree.

We have a lot of waste in our landfills and oceans.  Why not recycle some of this stuff into other things?

Happy Crafting and Happy Recycling too!  Cheers, Love Chan
