We love to use recycled materials when we make crafts.
It just seems much less wasteful to use a few things before they get thrown out.
Here are some awesome recycled Valentine crafts that all use an item or two from the recycle bin. Grab those old newspapers, cardboard boxes, and scraps of paper. It’s time to start crafting!

So, rummage in the recycle bin and grab some supplies.
What Recycled Materials Should You Keep?
Keep anything cardboard, such as old packing boxes, cereal boxes, and even cardboard tubes.
Also, newspaper, magazines, and paper scraps are good for craft projects.
Finally, keep some things that can’t be recycled, but can be reused such as old cd’s and bubble wrap.
All of these things are great for craft projects.
