I was cleaning my room the other day when I found quite many cereal box that I had saved in the hope of making something out of them someday. My table was a huge mess with all the letters and bills piled up in the drawers and I knew it was time I made use of the cereal cartons I have been saving since so long. 😀 So I fashioned this simple little paper organizer box which can be used as a bill/letter box or a magazine/newspaper holder too.
Pen holders are the easiest things at home that we can DIY through an upcycle project!

I am already feeling so good by recycling loads of newspapers that are decorating my house instead of going to the trash. Here I have made a simple tray out of old newspapers and leaflets by newspaper weaving method. I will be using this as a decorative tray that will sit on the counter or table in my living room. It will give an asthetic look to the corner as well as it will help me to keep some flowers or keys and change them occasionaly.

The bangle wall hanging that I completed now does not involve any cutting or heating unlike the previous one and is relatively simpler one as well.

I have been trying to finish this newspaper lampshade like since eternity and I just finished it last week! I hated to see my table stacked up with incomplete projects and all those bottles and mugs and jars that screamed “me next! me next!!” from my recycle stash. So I started this ” Mission clean-up” and finished two long pending projects in one day, one of which was this newspaper lampshade. I was really fascinated when I first came across newspaper weaving and tried making a newspaper weaved basket which was an utter disaster! And now months later I figured a new way to use newspaper other then weaving. I would call it newspaper quilling 😛 Read on to know more 😉
