A new exclusive Simon brand release is headed your way next week (YAY!), but today we’d like to take a look back at some recycled and repurposed projects in celebration of Earth Day! Below you’ll find three inspiring and unique projects that are beautiful AND earth friendly!

First off is this sweet altered clipboard by Shari Carroll:

Shari’s cute project is not only darling, but she was able to use a drinking straw, cardboard, and pop tops to create the petals of the flower. You can see the details of this design by Shari on our blog HERE and of course, she’s made a video showing her process which you can see on YouTube HERE.

  1. It would be great if SB companies could reduce the amount of plastic they use. Dies, stamps, embellishments etc all are wrapped up in plastic. I hope someday it can be fixed
