Today I am joining Old Grey Mare for Project Genesis where once a month we share our ideas for change. Simple ideas that help to improve the environment. Ideas that anyone can use to make an impact in their world.
We eat a lot of cereal at our house so there are lots of cardboard boxes each week that in days past would have been thrown out. (This is not the cereal we eat. :) A friend "gifted" these boxes to me for my projects.)
Since blogging, I've been inspired by so many out there who recycle, upcycle and reuse just about anything available for crafting. Now all those cereal boxes are turned into gift totes using cheap or old gift wrap paper, Graphics Fairy images and any other embellishments on hand.
I also trace and cut them into tags.
Then decorate and embellish using scraps leftover from other projects.
This simple act of recycling helps me to feel better about my impact on the environment. And in turn, I have totes for gift giving and tags with messages and images that spread a little joy to others.
As Ghandi said "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Peace & blessings, Tammy
