Week Three: April Stash Bust

April Stash Bust

Happy Earth Day everyone!

It’s week three into the April Stash Bust and the last day to enter the the Stash Bust Challenge. Have you entered your project yet?

There are so many great entries. You need to check out this dinosaur tote bag made from canvas and freezer paper stencils. How cute is that? I’m also loving this paper mat, woven from magazines and paper bags. The colors are beautiful.

More inspiration to keep you- new craft supply free through the end of the month after the jump:

  • Have enough paper lying around? How about making matchbook notebooks, or awesome paper chains.
  • This great tutorial teaches you how to clean out your closet and get new yarn for your knitting and crochet projects.
  • Make a plastic canvas box. Perfect for storing cleaning supplies or even carrying a lunch.
  • If your stash is anything like mine, than it must be over flowing with yarn. Here’s a great pattern to use up some of those last yards of a skein that I can’t bear to get rid of.

Read about how the month has been progressing in Week One and Week Two.
