Wrapping paper snowflakes

I beat the Christmas blues and reused some wrapping paper!

The old ideas are sometimes the best – simple paper snowflakes are livening up my windows after the Christmas decorations have come down.

Hello window

Until I put this site together I had no idea that a lot of the things I have made are connected to windows; curtains, blinds, light catchers. The window is a powerful metaphor in fact this site is a small ‘window on waste’ and I look forward to exploring this further.

Wrapper rescue

I’m interested in looking at how we can reuse wrappers of all kinds – sweets, chocolate, crisps, wrapping paper, that coming in a range of foils, plastic foils, paper foils and thin cheap plastic. Mostly this plastic packaging can’t be recycled. However they offers a huge range of colours and sparkle and I’m looking for ideas to make long lasting items out of them.
