I’ve written a few articles on repurposing junk mail, but Gretchen at Junk Mail Gems takes it one step further. Like the rest of us, Gretchen was fed up with the mountains of credit card offers and advertising circulars piled in her mail box and home. But instead of getting angry, she got creative and turned junk mail into pretty little treasures, like sparkly magnets, necklaces and handmade paper.
In true repurposeful spirit, Gretchen provides other great ideas on her site for repurposing everyday items, like how to turn a placemat into a diapers & wipes clutch, how to transform an old grill into an herb garden or turning a food canister into ribbon storage. You can follow the Junk Mail Gems blog to stay informed with Gretchen’s latest brilliant ideas.
And guess what? Junk Mail Gems is GIVING AWAY a set of junk mail magnets to one lucky repurposeful reader! Finally, you can get rid of the zillionth Dominos magnet and dress up your fridge or message board with these glamorous and sophisticated little gems.
How to enter: Visit Junk Mail Gems and come back here to leave a comment on this post with your favorite magnet (there are many styles to choose from!).
The deadline for this giveaway is Monday, April 20 at midnight, EST.
~ Good luck! ~
