Recycled Soup labels for wrapping paper

1 Mar

It was quite accidental…really. I didn’t feel like leaving the house to go and get wrapping paper for my friend’s son’s birthday party. So I used what I had around the house.<!–

My favorite is the bow I made using a soup label.

I totally admit that I got carried away with the slipcover greeting card envelope.

Green-To-Go Tip of the day!

22 Sep

 

Before you throw it away think if it might be of use to someone else. A website such as Craigslist is an excellent opportunity to get rid of what you no longer need and give it a chance at a second life with someone else. It’s free to post and the people who visit the website are really cool. Last year I was selling off some books to make room for more. That summer I made $700, cleared out a few of my bookshelves but more importantly made a few new friends!

 

What you need to do:

1) Select the city you live in.

2) Create a profile using your email (don’t worry personal information is not given out)

3) Write a fun entry that describes what you’re selling.

4) Wait for the emails to start pouring in.

 

It’s that simple!
