Instead of throwing the scrap paper into the trash can, better to turn it into something else. The scrapbook can be the medium to write your diary in an exciting way. It actually works for other purposes too.
The point is scrapbooks can be made from your scrap paper, magazine, newspaper, and other paper-based things with the picture on them. If you are seeking a new idea for making a scrapbook, check this out to get inspired!
The first to decide is the theme and the purpose. Going with a vintage design sounds interesting. Decide the purpose of your scrapbook, whether it be your diary or gathering information. Let’s go for the diary first. Gather the materials related to the vintage theme. Choose the book with brown pages that will be spot on.
For the embellishments, gather the dried flowers, glitter, washi tape, and sticker. Meanwhile, for the content, you can go with the leftover newspaper, magazine, and calendar. Let’s move on to the making process!
Cut the picture and the letters or phrases you want to put in your scrapbook. Stick it into your pages and write beside the pictures. If you want to make it neat, go with sticky notes or just scrap paper to write your sentences. Embellish with the dried flower, washi tape, and the sticker. For this one, it’s up to your creation in forming it.
Gather your scrap paper and other things listed above and make it real!
Teaching science and technology to the kids not always have to go with the complex thing. Introducing them to the role of science in daily life using paper can be work too. If you are seeking ideas for paper experiments to do with your students, let’s check this out and get inspired!
Arrange a crafting class with making the paper pinwheels. For this project, all the students do are just cut, fold, and stick. Have a paper pinwheels template and share it with the students. Let them fold and stick several parts to the wheel then insert the stick on it.
Then, it’s time for testing it. Take the students outside and instruct them to face the winds while holding the paper pinwheels. The wind will make the paper pinwheels spin.
A group project for the paper experiments will be exciting too. The project will be the challenge to make the tallest building out of paper. Divide the kids into groups of three and make them work together to plan and execute the challenge.
Prepare a special gift for those who nailed it. It is such a great project for introducing how science work. They can see the right measurement will make the building firm and even can be the tallest.
The Paper ball run challenge is a great project for kids’ paper experiments. Arrange them to make a building for the ball, so it can run easily through each part they build. This project also makes the students think of ideas to make the ball run as it should.
Choose the ones you think suits your students and make them learn while also having fun with the projects!
The leftover paper towel roll actually can turn into awesome things. Therefore, instead of throwing it away, better to gather and DIY it into something else. If you are looking for ideas to reuse your paper tower roles, these ideas might inspire you to make the ones.
Turn the toilet paper into kids’ projects such as the lace bracelet. You just have to customize it with the kid’s wrist and layer it with the lace. Add embellishments such as buttons and beads to make it spot on! From the roll shape, you might already see its potential to be the organizer.
Prepare the wooden board for the base. Customize the paper tower roll height and stick it onto the wooden board. If you think the original color is too lame, just layer it with the gift paper or the other ones.
Start to be organized by organizing your cord with the paper towel roll. All you need to do is embellish it with a sticker and washi tape to look gorgeous. Just roll your cords and insert them into the paper towel rolls.
The left-over paper towel rolls also help you in gardening. Instead of buying a new pot, better to use it as a place to grow the seeds. Other things you can create by reusing the paper towel roll are the jewelry holder, paper wreath, bird feeder, wall art, and many more.
Those are the signs that paper towel rolls are versatile. Instead of spending more money to buy new things, DIY comes up as the solution to tighten your budget and spend it on other crucial things. Spend your weekend making those things and have a fun DIY!
