Repurposed Paper — Gift Bows and Paper Beads

Who would've thought that last month's magazine can become this month's latest fashion? This class is all about ReMaking your scrap materials and turning them into something new. We'll start with fun and easy gift bows made from the pages of a magazine, which will dress your gifts in upcycled style. Then we'll make paper beads, which you can turn into earrings, a necklace, and even a fancy wrist cuff. Best of all, you’ll ReMake these projects all by yourself. The book, ReMake It, is filled with 95 awesome recycled projects from the stuff you usually scrap. The magazine gift bow and beads are only the beginning of giving your garbage another go. After you start ReMaking It, you’ll never look at trash the same way again!
Students should bring to class:
  • a magazine
