Creative Reuse Project Wants Your Ideas


Image via ExtremeCraft is working on a project, gathering 1,000 creative ideas for reusing materials, and your ideas are wanted. But the deadline is fast approaching.

Read on for how you can contribute.

We are seeking submissions for 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse, an upcoming book by Garth Johnson of, which will feature 21st Century craft and design, all made with recycled, upcycled, repurposed and reused items. We are looking for the best examples of paper and book arts, jewelry, clothing, home and personal accessories, furniture, art, and miscellanea for possible publication. We invite designers, artists, visionaries and crafters of all stripes to submit their work.

To submit your ideas - and we know you have them! - visit and get their guidelines for turning in your work. Hurry, though - the deadline is January 5.

Books like these are exactly what we love to see, as they encourage us to think outside of the box and repurpose materials already in the life stream so that fewer new materials are needed, and less waste ends up in landfills.
