Recycled Paper Flowers, Gift Bags From Newspapers, Gift Bows From Magazine Pages, and Magazine Coaster Free Tutorials From Jessica Jones of Jessica Jones

I just LOVE paper crafts and all the things you can do with paper these days. To say there has been a paper explosion during the last few years would be putting it mildly. When I was a kid (yes, back in the stone age) we used newspaper for crafting purposes.

So, I was happy to see that Jessica Jones of of Jessica Jones had several wonderful tutorials on her How About Orange blog using recycled newspaper and magazine paper to create flowers, make a gift bag, make a gift bow,  make magazine coasters,

Here's what Jessica had to say about her tutorial:   I learned to make paper flowers a long time ago with directions from a library book. They don't require any adhesive, and there are just four shapes to cut out.

Here's what Jessica had to say about her tutorial:   When I bought something at a store recently, the clerk handed me my purchase in a bag made from a newspaper. I liked it very much and had to make some more—thus today's DIY recycled newspaper project: gift bags made from the Wall Street Journal. You can vary the dimensions, of course, but here's what I used to create a bag that's 5" tall, 4.5" wide, and 3" deep.

Here's what Jessica had to say about her tutorial:   In gift wrap emergencies when you've got the present but need some wrapping, here's an idea for turning a magazine page into a bow. (There may be better ways to stick this thing together, but I used what I had on hand: staples and adhesive glue dots. Double stick tape should work, too.)
