Upcycling paper!

It only takes me 20 minutes of cleaning my house - and hey presto! - the recycling bin is full again.

Full of cardboard in different thicknesses, shapes, colours, qualities. If you start looking at this waste in a new way, you'll see it for the great craft material it really is!

I recently designed a powerpoint presentation for the LearnCraftDesign  website ( published by the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland) on how to do a little papercraft project with primary school children - it's called "Design Your Own Room". Why not have a look and get inspired?
