My ongoing search for new uses for cereal boxes led me to Michele Pacey’s Michele Made Me blog [mentioned previously (several times) here], where Michele provides tutorials for making these three neat, decorative pieces from paperboard boxes. 


To make your own pieces, see Michele’s tutorials here, here (garland), and here.

DIY project: Fold old maps into origami globes.
Other sheets of paper, such as magazine, catalog, book, or old sheet music pages, also could be used.
For this project, 5” square pieces of maps were folded into globes, then strung on twine. If you’d prefer to leave your globes loose, you could display a bunch of them in bowls, or group them on trays and add other items to make centerpieces (great for travel-themed parties). What other uses could you find for them?
For the how-to-fold-‘em details — Robbi Lindeman’s excellent tutorial and photos — visit poppytalk’s blog.

I’ve definitely had the experience of wondering whether something useful could be done with paint samples — they seem too nice to throw away, but also not very, uh, functional. One solution:


Grace and Light shows us an adorable way of re-using those colorful paint samples we have left over by making them into heart garlands. Way easy and super cute!

It’s wine o’clock (somewhere) — which means it’s time to share a wine-related repurposing idea: 
Make garland from wine corks. (Kzannoart on Etsy makes and sells the garland pictured above.) There’s also this DIY example that we spotted last year.
For additional finds, scroll through Unconsumption’s “wine o’clock” series of posts here.
Thanks to those of you who’ve sent “wine o’clock” suggestions to us. (And “beer o’clock” reuse ideas!)  If you’ve come across other examples of wine (or beer) bottle or cork repurposing that you think we should feature here, tell us about them in a comment below, or on Facebook, or send us an e-mail message [Unconsumption (at) gmail.com].
Cheers!
