I’m all about reducing, reusing and recycling. Today, I’ll be telling you about 4 ways you can repurpose basic items and make them into something new. Are you ready to get started?
Fabric Scraps Into Stuffing
If you sew, you probably know that sewing projects result in a lot of little fabric scraps that are too small to be used for anything else. Rather than throwing them away, I’ve discovered that you can chop up these scraps into small pieces, put them in a bag and then eventually use them as stuffing for a stuffed animal or pillow. How cool is that?

Looking to accessorize? Look no further than your desk drawer! You can turn paper clips into unique, casual bracelets and necklaces super easily. Plus, when you need a paper clip for an assignment, just slide one out of your necklace!
Paper Scraps into New Paper
Use up your small bits of paper by turning them into new paper! While this is a rather involved process, it’s a lot of fun and produces textured, unique paper perfect for gifts and craft projects.
