“Creativity is making marvelous out of the discarded.” — Anonymous
When someone commented positively recently about my posts on upcycling, only then I looked back and realised I did not share any of the crafts I worked on throughout the year last year in my blog. In fact, I did not even blog that much over the last 12 months.
My upcycled projects last year were few. Besides, I had “succumbed to the hashtag” and posted those few creations on Instagram instead along with some of the older projects from the past few years.
I played more with paper and card off-cuts last year. I visited my printer friend Mary often especially in the last few months and every time after I had been to her place, I would come home with stacks of good quality paper or card off-cuts that they kept for me.
This monster of a machine amazes me — cutting inches thick paper and cards like butter!
Mary and her team are always amazed by what I could come up with using their leftovers. Truly, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!
General paper and card: RM0.05 per kg
White paper and card: RM0.50 per kg
One upcycled card: RM5.00
Value of an upcycled card: priceless!
One can never put a value on creativity!
