    Re: best out of waste - my latest creations

    Gurmeet, its really simple weaving technology. Just fold newspaper into strips and weave them...... try flat weaving and then fold it upwards to give sides.

    Attached is another one.

    Paper/Pamphlet/Notepads Holder & Bathroom Shampoo Holder

    The first photograph is that of a paper holder that I made.
    This is made from Kelloggs Cereal Cardboard Box.
    Pasted some white sheets around the box, to increase the thickness / strength and wrapped it with a gift wrapping sheet.
    Have given a small pocket for smaller papers/pads.

    The second photograph is the holder I made for the bathroom - to hold shampoo bottle, washing brush etc
    In this, I just used my son's wax crayons to give colour to the white sheets I pasted on the box (without using gift wrapper sheets).

    Instead of throwing away the empty cardboard boxes, I thought of using them to make these holders. Saves Money. Keeps things organized.
    Gives a sense of satisfaction and relaxation.

    Pamphlets and Notepads wont lie scattered on tables anymore:thumbsup

    Re: Paper/Pamphlet/Notepads Holder & Bathroom Shampoo Holder

    Thanks Usha maam, Shanta maam and Pavithra maam. Thanks a lot for encouragement. I used to do a lot of craftwork during school days. But then, I lost interest:bonk. Thanks to IndusLadies, I have again gained interest:cheers.

    Radhika maam, Both the holders have been stuck to the wall. I used double tape.I was initially worried that they may fall down because double tape may not be able to hold the weight, but to my surprise, its working:thumbsup

    My husband was very happy to see these :) and he has asked for a holder for his watch and purse, since our son trys to pull it from the table daily and we keep running back and forth :spintrying to save them.
    So, planning to do one soon :)
    Will post the photo once I do it.
