Fun with Recyclables on Day 5 of Power-Down WeekThursday, April 23, 2009
Empty orange juice carton or empty tissue boxes
Paper – (Using the back of school notices, we printed our favorite collage)
For the battery recyclable bin – in one of the sides, print out the recycle logo to remind family members!
5 years ago when I put together Mom and Dad’s 40th wedding anniversary, I used tissue boxes. I had the sitting arrangement so I gathered all the old photographs depending on the guest list. Each guest in the table is featured in the tissue-box-centerpiece. They weren’t using digital cameras then so I had to scan the pictures one by one. Everyone loved looking at the old photos. They all took it home. You can just refill the boxes with tissues. Mom and Dad still has a few around their house.
