What are they?
Newspapers are printed on very thin, low-cost rolls of paper (made from wood pulp) and whilst their primary use is for sharing the daily news, there are SO many more uses for them once you’ve finished reading.
Where can I buy them?
Newsagents, supermarkets and local shops all sell newspapers, but the easiest thing to do is simply save any old papers people no longer want or collect the free ones that you can find at train stations and so on.
What can I use them for?
Newspapers aren’t just for covering a work service or for making papier mâché, they can be used for loads of projects! Party hats, bracelets, gift bags, ornaments, flowers and photo frames are just a few things you can make, Crafting a Green World has 30 great ideas to get you started.
Why do you like them?
There’s never a shortage of newspapers in our house (thanks to my fiancé) so I’m always keen to incorporate the unused ones in my crafting. As I’ve mentioned it’s such a versatile material and there are so many projects I can’t wait to try in the future!
