Paper Trunk Birthday Celebration!

Happy Birthday Paper Trunk! Though many of the prizes have been given out, there are many
fun ideas and "green" tips!

Come by and say "Hello"!

I even contributed in the fun with a couple of "green" tips! (I was their April Guest Designer!)

Paper Trunk uses recycled packaging and prints many of their collects on recycled paper!

Scrapbooking can be made just a little bit greener if you do your part:

-Use a reusable shopping bag (Scrapaganza has them available with our logo!!) when shopping for supplies!
-Look for products that use recycled papers-there is even a cardstock company that is using windpower in production!
-Save those scraps!! Have draws dedicated to organize your scrap papers by color! There are SO many things you can do with scraps! Mosaics, punched shaped, strips and borders... if several choices of the same color are available together, they might just spur some creativity!
-Use your packaging in your LO's! There are a TON of ideas available online for using your packaging! Use the plastic cover over embellishment for a shadow box... or cut out a fun design or word from the packaging... the options are endless!
-Look around your house! You might remember, Design Diva Candi made flowers out of the TP roll... use old material for flowers, or strips for borders or mats... use washers, paperclip or pins as embellishment... Use junk mail to highlight a favorite thing...

The ideas are endless!
