Turn Mail Order Catalogs into Memory Books

I like to keep very well bound mail order catalogs. At the end of the year, I will take the best art work of my children for each month of the year, and attach them to the pages of the catalog. On the front I put a title, the year of the work, with the child's name and photo. Then I have a recycled memory book of their whole years work.


I also use recycled paper for mulch, weed killing bird cage use, and the rabbit cage (bottom drawer) use. Sometimes I fill a pillowcase with shredded newspaper, magazine and catalog paper (shredded by hand), and give it to the animals to lay on. So much to do, so little time. :)

I keep catalogs and staple or tape craft leaflets, patterns and notes into them. I used to do this in a note book but I like using the old catalog better.

You can also use magazines to make paper jewelry out of. Just look up paper beads on any search engine.
