New GreenCraft Magazine
GreenCraft is their ode to all things green, recycled, upcycled and more.
In the premier issue you’ll find over 50 stylish and sustainable projects to inspire you.
“Finding creative uses for old items is nothing new to artists, but the spirit of preserving the planet is more important than ever before and GreenCraft Magazine is here to honor and inspire those who find artistic applications for normally discarded resources.”
GreenCraft is printed on recycled paper and will be published twice a year; every February and August.
I have a copy of the new GreenCraft and there are some very cute projects in here. On page 80 and 81 you’ll find “For the Love of Tin”. It showcases ways to make use of tin cans. These tin can baskets and storage containers are so cute you’d never know there’s a can underneath the craftiness.
The “Cereal Box Chic” favor and gift boxes (pages 42-47) are also pretty and so practical, you’ll think twice about ever buying a gift bag again when you have what you need at hand. Forget sticking flattened cereal boxes in the recycling bin from now on I am saving them and turning them into pretty little gift bag/boxes. I have plenty of ribbon, wire and what not accessories to decorate them.
Another cute idea that is highlighted in GreenCraft is on page 138, an old hinge is used to create a very awesome piece of jewelry.
There are a lot of beautiful, artful, stylish and whimsical projects in GreenCraft that will leave you inspired and ready to dig through your recycling bin and craft box.
