Recycled Carton Wallet

Upcycle milk or orange juice carton into ingenious carrying case for change.
Clever recycling ideas are always worth writing about. In one of our first posts, Mania wrote about how to make this interesting Recycled Paper Basket to store some home stuff. Reusing packaging paper sheets in such way was truly innovative. Not to mention this easy project of Recycled Mobile Phone Holder made out of flat, lotion bottle. It really helps to keep my phone and cord in one, safe place.

Anyway, I always try to remember about the "3 R's rule" - Reduce, Recycle, Reuse! Following those steps I find Recycled Carton Wallet project, not only for those with a big amount of change in their pockets, but also for eco friendly handimaniacs! "Spoonful" guides you through the easy tutorial and provides very useful template to print.

I think I'll make this project with our son, and I am sure it would do for the ecology lessons at school. Also, I recommend you to be creative while finishing it (use any embellishments that you like). If you can think of any other use of this wallet than for coins or trading cards, let us know on our fan page.
