I love finding craft projects that use up what would otherwise be thrown away! Here are a few I’ve recently bookmarked.  Think you’ll give any of them a try?  I know I’m going to!

How About Orange shares how to make recycled bow gifts using old phone books! I don’t know why we even get phone books these days (don’t we rely on the internet now?) but here’s a way to put them to good use. This also prevents you from having (or wanting I suppose) to buy brand new bows for gift wrapping.

I also want to make her adorable bow paper clips! So simple. I think they are a perfect bookmark. I have plenty of fabric scraps laying around that I can use for this.
Okay, this is so awesome that I wish I had thought of it myself! DIY cookie cutters… out of cans!! Love it. Thank you, DIY Home Sweet Home!
Llymlrs gave me the confidence to dye my hair in the popular ombre trend this week! I’m excited. Doing it myself at home will only cost me around $7.

Pretty Handy Girl made paper flowers to add to a wreath. This would be a great way to give a Fall/Winter wreath an updated look for Spring/Summer!
