saving the planet, one craft project at a time.

by @according2kelly on March 6, 2008

tonight “not your mama’s craft night” is going green. reduce, reuse, recycle is the theme of the night. a few of the projects we will be tackling are:

t-shirt bags – reuse an old t-shirt & make reusable shopping or grocery bag

magazine bowls & coasters – reduce your magazine stash! turn an old magazine into a bowl/ plate/ coasters

fusing plastic – recycle all of those plastic store bags (you know from target, the grocery store, etc.) into a reusable shopping or grocery bag, or a wallet, or a cosmetics bag…

feel free to craft along from the comfort of your own home… all the projects are super easy & totally addicting! personally, i can’t stop making fused plastic bags.

I've seen those coasters made out of magazines at Anthropologie and have been wanting to buy them because they were so great. But I just knew I could make them so I didn't. Thanks for posting the link on how to do it.
