Today I am here to share how to take something from well trash to treasure LOL! Today we are going to be looking at packing material. Yes packing material. There is so much you can do with these "trash" or recyclables before they go into said bins.
So who does NOT like to pop bubble wrap? In my household it is a cheap entertainment tool! BUT did you know that you can also use it to make backgrounds for your cards/layouts etc? Spread some ink, paint, etc onto a surface, ball up the bubble wrap and "stamp" your little heart out. Easy and unique background! Here is just ONE example, you can make it as precise or as messy as you want (and they even make stamps with this pattern! Look at that saving you money already!)
Here is another quick idea. Cardboard, yes that stuff from shipping boxes etc. It can be useful for many things, to stamp on, get messy and even to punch/die cut shapes from. However my favorite usage is using the 'guts' of it to make a corrugated base on the cheap (note it is NOT acid free). You can tear it to look like:
Or leave it plain, paint it, mist it, punch it, die cut it, etc etc. The sky is the limit!
Now what have you used around the house that is not meant for scrapping? What would you like to see explored here?
