We love recycled crafts. I am absolutely a collector when it comes to the scrap material we use in our crafting sessions, as I know there are great ways to use them.

I am very happy to share this upcycled flower journal (by Jacquelyn). Because you can use two amazing materials – newspaper and bubble wrap – to open up a window of craftability. If you can resist the temptation to burst your bubble wrap, you can use it as an art object. The most amazing textured brushes will delight kids and adults alike. If you haven’t tried bubble wrap painting yet, we encourage you to give it a try.

We really love recycled crafts. I’m a total hoarder when it comes to the scrap materials we use in crafting sessions because I know there’s always a great way to use them.
I’m super excited to share this journal with upcycled flowers (made by Jacquelyn) because it uses two amazing materials that open a window of crafting possibilities: newspaper and bubble wrap. If you can resist the temptation to pop bubble wrap, it can be used as an art supply – a brush with the most amazing texture that will delight children and adults alike. If you haven’t tried bubble wrap painting yet, I invite you to give it a try.
