We’re drinking much apple juice and milk – and they come in tetrapaks. We must have ‘produced’ tons of it!
Therefore I love the idea of recycling at least on of them into an coin purse.
On the photo you see my first attempt (still without button): it’s such a nice idea :)

I really love those tiny pincushions, just like the Recycled Pincushion Ring.
Now I found a tutorial on how to make bottlecap pincushions – great!
A little Google research (websites and images) showed me that many people make such cute bottlecap pincushions.
Perhaps I will make one, too – one day? ;-)

I didn’t know about those Starbuck cards but it seems to me that I should drink my café there in the future – lots of coffee ;-))

I found a tutorial on how to make rice glue to be used with paper crafts.
I’m always glad when I find non-toxic recipes so I immediatly bookmarked this one.
For the photo I took a picture of rice but I think that Sushi rice or rice pudding rice will work better.
I mentioned previously crocheted buttons, beaded beads, paper beads and fabric beads.
Another way to make your own buttons and/or beads is knotting fabric.
On the photo you see my first attempt on this technique: I admit that I still have to work on it ;-))
It is tiny (about 0,5 cm / 0.2 inches) and was made from a very light fabric that frayed heavily. I thought that this could look interesting, instead it looks unfinished.
Back to the drawing board ;-)
