My reviews are based on my personal experience with a product or event. I am not a professional product tester nor do I get paid for any of my blog posts.

The items that I post reviews on, have either been purchased on the internet or through a local vendor. Additionally I will review items that I got on sale, as a gift or as a sample from either the manufacurer or some other source.

Note: always read the manufacturers directions on how to properly use a product and craft carefully. Additionally, I am an Amazon Associate and may earn a few cents (literally) from your clicking on my Amazon links. Since they raised the minimum payout from earnings to $10 I haven't seen a credit for a while but eventually I will get one.

Every penny counts when trying to set a budget to get supplies to use for my reviews, tutorials and hauls. However, you do not have to use my links. You can use your favorite search engine to find the best price for your budget.

Easy recycled aluminum soda can craft project ideas.

These are just a few ideas of different things you can make with recycled aluminum soda cans.
The first is a soda tab choker made by me from recycled soda can tabs that I got in a kit.

The second item is a pair of soda can earrings that are made by me.  The leaves are made from a "Red Bull" can that has been run through a die cut machine.  The earrings are accented with turquoise chips. I used the "Spellbinders" Presto Punch to cut out the leaves.
The third is a floral barrette made from recycled soda cans.
The fourth is a butterfly and a dragon fly that are cut out of recycled aluminum soda cans using the
Big Shot die cutter.
These are all really easy projects that do not take a lot of time to make.  What types of projects do you make from recycled materials?

Easy Recycled Paper Projects YouTube Tutorials

These are just some of the many easy recycled paper project YouTube tutorials that are available for learning to make some basic baskets and recycled paper jewelry.  This first tutorial is from Janice May.  She demonstrates how to make a tightly coiled magazine paper bead to use for jewelry projects.

This second tutorial is from Idunn Goddess, who shows how to make a fun basket from recycled newspaper.

The third tutorial is by Mariaamora2001.  It is a very basic recycled newspaper basket weaving project, using a slightly different style.

The fourth tutorial is by Gustamon.  While the video is in Spanish, you do not need to speak Spanish to make the project. There is no weaving, just roll and glue.  You can also change it by wrapping the newspaper around a balloon, then allowing it to dry.  Once dry, just pop the balloon.

These are all very easy and fun ways to use recycled materials for crafting and home decor projects.
