Well....not that it's really recycling day today. Ours is on the first and third Wednesday of the month.
I say it's recycling day 'cos I'm following my friends' (JA & TP) advice to "recycle" the chicken carcasses by boiling them down to make a yummy soup stock. Now why didn't I think of that earlier?!!
And while that's boiling away and making the entire house smells really amazing.....I gathered 4 of the empty Caprisun juice packets and turned them into a small pencil case by sewing the individual packets together and adding a zipper.
It was surprisingly easy to sew through the packets. I used a denim sewing machine needle for the task. The only problem was that I didn't dry the drink packets sufficiently.....so the whole project was getting really wet! :P
The completed pencil case looks kinda cute. I should try it with other prettier looking packages. Good way to recycle the otherwise non-biodegradable drink packets that are gonna end up in the landfills. 4 packets saved from the landfill - and 1 new pencil case. How's that for a win-win situation!
