Everyday we encounter countless objects that serve their purpose and are then discarded … but couldn’t they be used for something else? Absolutely. Knowing this, we’ve compiled a list of some cool and creative up-cycling ideas – everyday objects that have been transformed into another.

Use a pin to poke rows of holes, which will become the crease. Fold it into a little box and add a piece of hook and loop closure (brand name is Velcro) and you’ve got yourself a clever lunchbox!

UPDATE: This post originally ran on March 23 2011, but with summer winding down we wanted to bring it back up for some late summer inspiration! a fellow fp girl sent this to me a couple weeks back and i’ve been thinking about it ever since! i can think of a million reasons why these would be awesome… as apartment décor, as outdoor party décor, and – wouldn’t they be the best thing EVER for camping in general or at a festival?
As I mentioned in my steampunk tree post, these hot air balloon ornaments have been our most time-consuming Christmas project. Lots of trial and error, figuring things out as we went along, and, in the case of getting the baskets to hang straight, plenty of "colorful metaphors."
I am a firm believer that it doesn't take much to add a little charm to your home or office.
This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM.
