Trash to Treasure?


Trash to Treasure: The Recycler’s Guide to Creative Crafts
Van Wagner Childs

Submitter: Here’s a treasure that I found while weeding. I’m pretty sure that 1996 wants her hairstyle and crafts back. These days, people use Pinterest and newer craft books for recycled crafts. The book is dated and beaten up, so it’s off to the trash.

Holly: This is a great topic for a craft book for a public library! It’s just really dated, and this particular copy is not in the best shape. I’m with Submitter: Pinterest and new books on this topic are a better option. On a side note, the lamp is kind of cute, but the Easter Surprise Box is a bit over-the-top. My Grandma might like it, I guess…
