Every week, I’ll be using an RRR scale – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – that I created to estimate how environmentally friendly the project is, based on whether the materials used are recycled materials and how well the final project can be recycled.
RRR scale: 10/10 leaves
Turn things that would go into your trashcan into something you can use again.
Always losing your bobby pins? Ingested a whole box of mints in anticipation of a New Years kiss? Still finding scraps of decorative paper from your frantic gift wrapping/unwrapping sessions? Here’s a quick remedy to all of your problems; a nifty little bobby pin case that’ll guarantee you’ll never lose your hairpins again.
You will need:
– An empty Tic Tac box
– Leftover scraps of gift wrapping paper
– Magnet tape
Step 1: Stick the magnet tape on the side of the Tic Tac box.
Step 2: Neatly wrap the leftover wrapping paper around the Tic Tac box, making sure not to obstruct the lid.
Time taken: 10 minutes
