What do you do with Tamper evident bands ?

tamper evident capsTamper-evident bands are commonplace in today’s packaging world.  If disposed of incorrectly, they can end up in our waterways and choke birds and sealife.

 

I found after just 3 weeks of reclaiming, that they soon add up.   These are items that would normally go to waste, but they can be repurposed if you use your imagination.

 

Craft Stencil:

Instead of purchasing craft stencils for yourself or kids, collect different sized tamper-evident bands so that you will always have the right-sized ring for your project.

 

Use your stencil to repurpose gift wrap, gift cards or coloured cardboard to make this style of wall hanging:

    Nothing like combining creativity and environmental safety. This is a wonderful win-win scenario. I am now going to have to wake up the right brain hemisphere and see what ideas I can come up with. My profession tends to cause a severe left head tilt from using ONLY the left hemisphere! Thank you for making me seek balance in my own life!! 🙂

    I think you will find it very therapeutic. Go to Pinterest for some inspiration.
