Green Your Crafting: Paper Creations

Scrapbook Crafting is a great way to build community, revitalize seemingly useless items, and encourage creativity. This week’s tips will help you keep your crafting from harming our environment.

Tip #3: Look Good on Paper

Scrapbooking is an ideal way to preserve memories, but paper-heavy crafting can hurt the earth. Consider, then, transforming an old book into the base of your next scrapbook, and decorating it with spare scraps of paper, fabric, or broken jewelry. Fill in your scrapbook with recycled-paper pages or even paper made out of coffee, mangoes, or bananas.
