Junk Mail

junk mail


Save money by recycling the free paper, pictures or envelopes that come unwanted to your mailbox.  Some of the paper that comes is free of writing and can be given to children to make planes or for coloring. 

Envelopes can be used as paper or even turned inside out reused.  Padded envelopes can be reused by simply covering the old address information and taping on the new address.

Sometimes junk mail has pretty pictures. Cut them out and use them as inspiration for projects or decoupage.
