How do you give back to preserve the environment? Jim and I recycle. There is a recycling center not too far from here that actually pays for all types of items to recycle. We get our "McDonald" money recycling!
One way I recycle is to use discarded CDs and DVDs. I make Christmas ornaments, mini-books, and now home decor. This is a piece I did for Glue Dots® Adhesives Design Team and to help celebrate my continuing efforts to celebrate Earth Day!
I save all the CDs we get in our home. I get CD catalogs, sometimes the CD just doesn’t burn, and my kids give me their discarded CDs. I thought I’d recycle a few CDs in an art piece for my home to celebrate Earth Day this year.
Glue Dots® Adhesives used in this project:
Cut 2 1/8” wide and 12 long strip of sturdy cardstock. Adhere Glue Dots® Adhesives Continuous Line. Don’t remove the lining from the adhesive. Cut into 3-inch strips.
I made this piece in February and I still have it hanging in my craft room. Glue Dots® Adhesives are strong. The top row of CDs are actually carrying the most weight and they have not moved a bit. Glue Dots® Adhesives are great for Home Decor projects as well as papercrafting!
Leave a comment and tell me how you celebrate Earth Day. You never know when you might win something scrappy!
I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots® design team.
Have a Crafty Day!
