Recycle Crafting

....with my youngest. During the week it is very hard for me to make it to my craft room. My boys need help with homework, rides to places, and other various things that crop up. My youngest often gets bored and looks on-line for projects to make. Cardboard, scissors and duct tape are his favorite tools! Last night he recruited me to help him make a folder from cereal boxes. He wanted me to show you the finished project.

Here is the inside of the folder.

He found the instructions on the Honey Comb box, here's the link in case you are interested . A crafty mom with red-liner tape and hobby blades comes in handy. I love that he finds creative things to do with his time rather than getting sucked into the TV all the time. He has also made some very cool baseball hats from paper and duct tape.

So, no cards to show you today but there was crafting going on in the studio!

Thanks for stopping by.

This is very cool, Tracy!! In my daughter's school they talk about recycling, ecology, etc., all the time and it would be a great project. TFS!
