Make it: Re-Crafted Magazine Packing Materials
I have stacks of magazines and every once in a while I plop down with a good movie or two and I go through them. I make tear sheets, file away good ideas, collect materials for collages and look for color pallets.
After I go them, I am always left with a mess and a huge pile of ripped of magazines that usually end up in the recycle bin. Well not anymore - Now I shred them into my own packing materials. I use a regular household paper shredder and it took about 10 minutes to fill this 18X20 box. Not bad!
Easy on the wallet, easy on the landfill and pretty colorful!
