Trash to Treasure

It has been a long time since I've posted anything aside from comic strips which is ok since this is a blog centering mostly on well, comic strips (what else).

However, just this morning my mom gave me this book:

There's something humbling about your mother giving you something for no apparent reason except for the fact that she knows you like being craftsy from time to time.  It doesn't matter that she bought it second hand from a book sale and costed around Php60/$1.50; I could happily say she knows me well enough to think about me when she wondered meanderingly through a bookstore.

I love eco-friendly products and should create more of them especially since it's one of my New Year's Resolution this year.  Unfortunately, the last big "Trash to Treasure" thing I made was waaay back last year or maybe even a couple of years ago:
Soda Pull Tabs Shoulder Bag
Bag up Close: croched and lined
I was proud of it but never had a chance to make a tutorial since I thought I'll be making some more through time (BTW, I have plenty of material to use because my dad is a big soda drinker)!

In honor of Trash to Treasures though, I want to post some pictures of adorable, recycled products which could give inspiration to other eco-friendly craft lovers out there.  The photos were all taken from Kultura's website and I know some of these had been on my bucket list of things to do just like my pull tabs bag which was inspired by their items.  Hopefully things will push through one of these days.

Plastic Vanity Kit

Strips Foil Bag (I believe this is made from those tetra packs)

iPad Newspaper Case

Pull Tab Wallet and ATM Case (the craftsmanship is great and I'm jealous!)
