Reusing Ordinary Items In Scrapbooks

Today I'm passing on a tip that will help you to save money when scrapbooking and to be environmentally friendly at the same time. The tip is all about how you can reduce waste by reusing items instead of throwing them out. Plus, since you are reusing, that means you have one less thing to buy and that saves you money.

So here are some items that you can reuse:
  • Reuse wrapping paper from Christmas and birthday presents as background paper. It's colourful and if there are any spots that are badly damaged, you can always cover them up!
  • Use leftover embroidery thread to create braids to form borders or to frame pictures on your scrapbook page.
  • Create pockets from old clothes or scraps of fabric. The pockets can then be used to hold anything that you don't want to permanently attach to your scrapbook.
  • Use leftover or spare buttons as embellishments. Damaged buttons will work too because you can always glue them to the page.
Do you have any items that you like to reuse in your scrapbook? Leave a comment below to let me know.
