      Orgami Junk Mail Dress...Also by Recycle Runway owner and artist Nancy Judd, this gown is (surprisingly) made out of colorful pieces of junk mail. Catalogs, solicitations and newspaper ads were folded into fans and sewn onto a scrap-canvas skirt and dress. Judd used the excess material to create a mantilla for the hair, and old postage stamps to cover the vintage shoes

    Use a black Sharpie marker to draw droplet shapes on junk mail flyers. Cut out the droplets, making sure to cut outside the black outline. Arrange and glue the droplets on a sheet of paper in an interesting, random pattern.

    Recycled Catalog Pages into Envelopes I save my Anthropologie, Free People and various other catalogs because I find the photos beautiful and inspiring. Instead of having ripped pages filling binders, I get the same effect from cutting and folding them into envelopes. I use a plastic envelope template I purchased at Michael's years ago, but you can use any envelope you have around. Just trace, cut, fold and glue up the sides. I use masking tape as a label to write the recipient's address on. I also tape the flap shut with masking tape and write on my return address. Everyone loves receiving a little piece of artwork in the mail!
