I'm Back!

Hi Everyone! I'm so happy to be back after a four-week absence. There were some family matters that needed attention and I'm glad you guys understand. I have a whole new bunch of recycling ideas for you and Tada!, I did a little re-decorating on my blog banner as well!

Our blah this week is this cardboard carrier:

You'll find something like it in the supermarket nestled with soda, beer and even ready-to-drink coffee. It's easy to recycle because it's sturdy and has several compartments that's useful for organization projects.


Tada! Dress it up with gift wrap and you've got yourself a utensil caddy for your outdoor parties and barbecues! Stuff it with forks, spoons and knives, as well as napkins, chopsticks and straws. Handy dandy, don't you think?

  4. This is such a great idea. I have seen these types of things at Party stores, but making your own would be much less expensive and even cuter. I love the paper. I will have to take a trip to Target.
