Reduce-Reuse-Recycle



Recycling takes on a new face. Dave made this pen from a recycled circuit board pen blank from a penmaker supply store. It's a geeky-techy kind of pen. I love it and he promised to make me one;) There are many benefits to being married to such a talented guy:)

Crafters are using their creative imaginations to find new uses for everyday items that don't degrade and take up valuable landfill space. Check out these crafty recyclers and maybe you will be inspired too!

Kate E. Austin's tutorial on making 'Plarn' from plastic grocery bags for crocheting!

Craft Gossip has a section for recycled crafts.

If you have old CD's with their cases that you were thinking of throwing in the trash, make a meaninful greeting card out of it, then have that person throw it away;) Adults and children will enjoy this idea.

Did he actually make the circuit board? I saw this exact pen in Woodcraft's catalog.
