Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.

I love watching how everyone has wrapped their mind around the concept!  It tickles and amazes me to see some of the things they came up with!   Its been hectic, but its been fun.  This is the fun concept I have come up with …

I no longer use disks, and still had a whole pack of them!

The notebook:

I slid the flap in the disks to expose the hole, I cut the papers to fit, these are from Dollar General, This big pack was $1.  I marked my placement and  punched the holes in the papers,  Then put it all together with rings.

The Candle holder:  Simply hot glue 5 disks together, add a candle.  This would be great to hold a cube of memo paper, or even a pile of Post It notes.  Such a wonderful gift for the techy loved one, or a tech teacher!

These would have been chucked in the trash, but this is a great way to reuse.

My personal Blog Candy:  All I ask is that if you were a follower at my Blogspot, you re-follow me here, if you are not or havent  followed, and if you like, but it’s not a requirement!    Please stop by Felicia’s blog and thank her for her kindness, and let me know you did,  for another entry for my Blog Candy!  Leave a comment here (before midnight) to be eligible to win!  I will Random.org a winner tomorrow!
