UpCycled mini-journals

This past week I've made these cute little mini-journals from upcycled box-board from various packaging and pages from an old art magazine. I adapted the simple process from Tascha at here video...

Re: How to Make a Mosaic with Your Old Plastic

What a great crafty project *and* clever way to keep all that horrid plastic out of our landfills. Nice!

Re: How to Make a Valentine's Day Felt-Fortune Cookie and Ring

These are so very, very cute ... a great gift for valentine's and anytime.

Re: How to Turn Blah Buttons into Bodacious Buttons

This is such a fun-fun-fun idea! And, as a rabid waste-not upcycling champion, I adore the nail polish idea! While I don't wear it, I know several who do and who likely have bottles that they (shame on them) regularly discard! :)

Re: How to Make Singleton Buttons

These are super-charming!

Thanks for sharing!

Re: Summer Fashion Finds On Etsy

I love that red halter - it's so cool and hot, contemporary and retro all at once! And being a hat-lover, I really dig the green sunhat too. And the earrings and pendant and frock and tunic too!

Oh, heck - I just love Etsy!

Re: Happy Father's Day From Craft Stylish

I have several items of my dad's. Some were his that he used while in this life (like the desk and chair I'm sitting in at the moment), and his WWII dog-tags, some are items that he made ... but one item I have that he made is a lovely coffee table - and I often wonder if he knew that he was making it FOR ME at the time.


Happy Father's Day to all the Dads!
