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

Hi there. Thanks for the comment. I love using Gold paint because it disguises the fact that it is actually recycled catalogs.

Have you seen iris cards? They are made from pieces of folded paper. I think I have a link to their website on my blog somewhere. I use pieces of security envelopes to make mine. I bet you could spray paint stips of paper and put a jewel in the center of the "Iris" to give them some bling! =0)
