Magnets en papier
Yesterday I met a lady who takes the bark from a certain type of tree, pulps it and makes paper. This paper is then sold as a specialty gift paper to tourists and others. It’s an example of Malagasy entrepreneurship, where the whole family is part of, and all supported by, this business. The manufacturing takes place in their backyard, the retail sales from their front porch. In a rather laborious process, they first pulp the bark, then lay it out on a big sheet and submerge it in water. It’s then taken out after it has settled evenly and is decorated while still wet with flowers.
We love offering free printable labels. They are created in different themes by well known designers.
Meubles en carton
First take an empty standard size aluminium drinks can, rinse it clean and then cut out the cylindrical section. A scalpel is quite handy to cut an incision near the top and then make this into a small triangle hole, big enough for a pair of scissors.
On peut tout faire avec du carton : des meubles, des murs, des bibliothèques et même… des vélos. C’est en tout cas ce qu’a fait le designer israélien Giora Kariv dans son atelier et le résultat est surprenant.
Ya. Estamos a viernes… Si te gusta el reciclaje, tienes tiempo libre este fin de semana y un poco de maña, esto te interesará. Lo único que te hace falta es una revista y arroz.

But what do you do with a regular paper map that is starting to fall apart from use?
When I was asked to be the Guest Pinhead for The Pinterest Challenge , I knew almost immediately which project I wanted to tackle!
Quilling has been around for hundreds of years, but it’s still as impressive and popular now as it was during the Renaissance.
