Recycling Ideas

Contributed by Papemelroti Recycling Raffle participants

What can you do with an old CD, playing cards, tin cans and such?  Discover more than 70  ways to re-use your throwaways.  Thank you for sharing these ideas with us!  (These are the very best ideas from the Recycling Raffle participants from last month.)

We asked these questions:  What have you recycled in the past? OR  What do you want to see recycled in the shop?  OR  Tell us how to recycle something.  We got a lot of good ideas!  So good we want to share them with you!


I'VE RECYCLED ....

1. I've recycled an old shirt. cut the sleeves then voila, a new sando for me:) - Abegail Madera

6. Recycling for me is transferring an old thing into a useful work of art.  By means of recycling, we can eliminate a fraction of our waste and the damage we brought to this planet. YES I have recycled things like soda bottles, aluminum cans, plastic bags, and even old car tires.  Since my early school days, I was taught to have a loving heart to the environment.  Now, as a teenager, I personally witnessed the consequences of our bad habits especially in waste management. Today is the not the time to blame each other's fault, but to help one another for the improvement of our society. RECYCLING can save us, RECYCLING can enhance our living, and mostly, RECYCLING is good for our development, and to the environment! - Arvin Cainila Polintan

Powdered products, on the other hand, are magical.  :) Turn them into colored sand! The fact that they're sparkly makes it better.

Don't get me started on how we recycle those compacts. - Sahjie Morante

We buy softdrinks by the case so we reuse the boxes to store stuff like old books, clothes and equipment. We recycle laundry water and use them to clean floors (had to be used soon as laundry water has a tendency to go stale and smell awful). We recycle bottles and plastic containers so we could use them to store candies, nuts, seasoning and craft stuff. We have recycled old, torn clothes into rags.   - Salmon Cat

There must be other creative ways we can make use of them. :) - Thea Danielle

Livelihood Products


A kaleidoscope of colors, a sea of texture, a mix of sizes and shapes on a table.  People pass, linger and finger the delicate items.  They thoughtfully read the sign.

Illustrated by Robert Alejandro

A bright print of a hand-painted illustration stands as a sign among the selection.  It's characteristic of Robert Alejandro's work.  He drew a lady, a craftswoman pausing to look up from her beads, glue gun and other paraphernalia.  She weaves her magic for Papemelroti!



And here it is!  Picture this at Papemelroti gift shops all over.  It's our freshly set up LIVELIHOOD PRODUCTS section in every branch!

See the colorful mix of items from the different product lines.


Take a look at the very special product offerings that have been described as "Gifts that will keep on giving"!

Every time you purchase one of these products, you're actually supporting a small home-based industry.  You, though unaware, gave much needed help to a street mom, dialysis patient, prison inmate waiting for his case to be heard in court or someone struggling to make ends meet.


 We wish to give you our heartfelt thanks!  Consider this corner if you want to give a gift that will continue giving... giving life to someone in need.

"In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’   Acts 20:35

Matchbox Minnie


November 20 is the Universal Children's Day and we wanted to feature a craft that you and a little one can do together (and enjoy playing with after).  Here’s an adorable project to do with a little friend.



Let's begin!
1 - You will need a matchbox, scrap cloth. Needle and thread, cotton, a fine permanent pen, scrap paper, embellishments, acrylic  or fabric paints(optional).  The cloth should be of fine weave because we are making a small thing. Check to see if you can draw on it with the marker, and that the ink won’t smear.  First make a drawing of the size of the stuffed “pillow” on the wrong side. It should fit nicely inside a matchbox.   



2 - Sew around the drawing, leaving the bottom open.   Invert the cloth to the right side.
Stuff the pillow with cotton. Make sure the pillow fits the matchbox, and is not too stuffed, that it is hard to close the box. Sew the bottom.


3 - Let a little friend draw a girl, or an animal, or imaginary creature on the pillow with the permanent marker. 



4 - To decorate the match box, look for scrap paper, magazine pages, stickers, fabric flowers, etc.  Then help your little friend cover the box and embellish it.


5 - Be sure to include the inside of the box.


6 - And decorate the top too!  If you use magazine pages, you can make a collage and cut out letters to spell your friend’s name! Whatever comes out, make sure you say, “Great job!”


7 - If you have paint, you can also color it!


8 - Here is my matchbox friend!



Variations: You can also make two pillows attached with a cord. Two friends, or one could be a pet. Just make sure both pillows fit into the matchbox!  If your Matchbox Minnie is small enough, you can make a pillow for the head and a blanket. So many things to make with this project!  Have fun!!!



Have some fun at the Link Parties!

Stress-free Christmas Shopping at Papemelroti


We want you to enjoy the Christmas season and not have to be harassed at the many errands, things to do and gifts you wish to purchase for friends and family.  To give you the best option for this, here's our suggestion.

1. Shop online for the products you want.  Usually we need gifts for our officemates (the same token for everyone).  Since we at Papemelroti provide a wide assortment of products, it is best if you order so we can give you the quantity you need.  Visiting the shop before your office party is not a good idea as we probably won't have 20 pieces of that specific item you liked (in the price range you hoped for).  Gifts run out fast during this time so since we at Papemelroti make our own products, we can produce in bulk for you (if given enough time).

2. Waiting in line just isn't fun.  Your time is precious.  Instead of that, just browse the hundreds of product pages of www.papemelroti.com to take your pick.  You can shop in your pajamas after or before the mall actually opens! We can actually personalize the items for you so it becomes even more valuable!

3.  We have thousands of products and new ones every month so sometimes you don't get to see everything properly.  At our site, you can see which items have just newly arrived.

4. You can either tell us you'll pick up the products at our shop OR have us ship them to you!  (Shipping costs apply) 

5. Have us package your gifts in different ways with our packaging options.  We'll have them ready for you to just write on the cards!

Here's our secret!  Give us at least 2 weeks to make new item/s you want that we don't have stock of!  Time starts now!  Visit us today at www.papemelroti.com!

Craft: Make Your Own Earrings!



I've always wanted to experiment on Fiber Bead earrings.

I guess it's a fun way to use the too many scrap cloth I can't bear to throw away!  Plus I know the earrings I create will be so totally different from any I've ever made!

First I gathered the tools and the materials:

assorted cloth scraps (I chose jeweled colors in silk and satin)
scissors
wire
earring hooks
pliers
cutter (for jewelry making)
candle
matches
bottle
plate
paper
pen


First choose the cloth you want to use to make into beads.


Cut up the cloth in 2 little pieces, in the same shape and size so that you come up with equally sized beads (unless you want to make an unequal pair).


Form a loop with the wire using one of the round nosed pliers.


Wrap the cloth around the wire, with the loop protruding at the top.


Wrap the wire protruding from the bottom around the fabric, using your own style (criss-cross, diagonal, whatever!).


Cut the wire wherever you can hide it (so the sharp point won't hurt the wearer).



If you want to use wax to coat the fabric, light a candle and spill the wax over the beads.



I wrote the word hope on a piece of paper, and glued it on to the bead. Then dripped wax over it again.



For my second pair, I didn't use wax, but I added an old bead at the end.



It's so fun to wear!  It's not heavy at all!  You can mix up the colors to add interest!


Well, I certainly came up with some unique earrings!!!

*This craft project was made by Patricia Paterno.  See more of her work at her Heartworks blog.
