Upcycled Crafts: Crafting for 5 years and counting!
Welcome to our 5 year anniversary craft post! In honor of Recycled Reads’ 5 year anniversary, we decided to take a walk down memory lane and reminisce about some of the crafting that’s been done here. The first crafting we can remember started with what else? Books of course! Here’s a sampling of some of our folded books that we made:
I remember doing some of these when I interned at Recycled Reads a few years back. Our own Mary Beth, who has moved on to another library (we miss you dearly!) was a pro at folding books. Here’s the link to our blog on folded books.
When Ruth arrived at Recycled Reads, our crafting endeavors increased dramatically. Some of the first crafts we experimented with were paper wreaths and paper bows, shown below:
Ever since then, we’ve continued to craft away, always looking for new possibilities. Here’s a snapshot of our table at the Austin Mini Maker Faire in 2013. We’ll be there again this year, and will be sure to provide you with the latest information so you can visit our table there.
We’ve come a long way, and not only in crafting! Come celebrate a great 5 years with us this weekend at the store, and don’t forget to visit one of our craft nights, the first Thursday night of every month.
