Each year in the US, more than 2 billion books, 350 million magazines and 24 billion newspapers are published. This equates to around 71 million tons of paper and paperboard. Fortunately a healthy percentage of this product is created through the recycling of paper.
Being an avid follower of Pinterest I saw some crafty, rolled paper ideas which got my brain rolling….rolled….rolling…ok only funny to me :). When I was a little girl, we’d do art projects in school by taking long strips of construction paper and rolling them up tightly into little – not sure what they were, just little bunches of rolled up paper (I must be tired as I write this as I’m not sounding overly professional at the moment). Then we’d glue those little rolled thingies onto paper making mosaic pictures that had a nice dimensional effect if you consider Elmer’s glue dripping all over the place a nice anything. Will it discredit me in the world of decorating if I were to confess I knew what Elmer’s Glue tasted like?
Ok, all witticism aside (you can give me credit for that word – it’s awesome), back to using recycled paper in decor: here are some creatively unique ideas for recycled print.
