Reuse, Renew, Recycle.....Go!!!!

I'm participating in a Nature/Recycle craft show this year. It's the first Saturday in May and will be in Hammond, IN at the Jean Shepherd Center. So I will be using things we normally throw away or send to the recycling centers in my art projects. First thing I have photos of are one of my favorites.... paper bag albums. They're a great way to use leftover lunch bags (don't use ones that had either a banana or peanut butter inside) and scraps of designer series paper. I just pick a theme and a color scheme and start working. They're really easy, fun and addicting to make. Then I give them as gifts or offer them for sale. People who don't craft love them because all the have to do is add photos and attach whatever elements I include (card candy, ribbon, etc). They have a quick and easy album in less than an hour.

This one is a holiday themed album. I used Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Night of Navy and Very Vanilla for the colors. The snowmen were from our Holiday Catalog 2012
