Yes, you can surround yourself with handmade beauty while helping the environment at the same time! Each project in this book uses one or more items that would ordinarily end up in a landfill. By finding ways to extend the usefulness of paper, plastic, cans, glass, clothing, and other recyclables, we've developed hundreds of green crafting ideas. Each is fun to make and even more fun to give as a gift! Whether you want to reinvent a lamp, create artwork from household discards, organize your photos, or get more mileage out of an old sweater, you ll find plenty of ideas and inspiration in these pages.
