Wondering how everyone feel about so much junk mail we get. Most people I have come across hate it but a few of them like browsing through it. I am just sad how much paper is wasted.
We recycle junk mail through our county recycle program.
I also use some junk mail in mixed media artwork. I especially like the solid color, quality paperstock some of the banks use when soliciting recipients to sign up for a credit card. I use that type of paper in a die cutting machine or with craft paper punches.
Even if you are not really into crafting or artwork, one $10 (purchased with a Michaels or JoAnn's 40% off coupon, of course!) craft paper punch in the shape of a tag, large circle or square can garner quite a few gift tags from some junk mail that offers a large area of a solid color. You can continue to embellish them or leave plain. A good quality, white gel pen looks great on dark paper like navy or grey. Good comparisons of white gel pens here https://www.jetpens.com/blog/t...hite-ink-pens/pt/340
Craft punch comes in handy after Christmas, too, upcycling those beautiful Christmas cards!
Thanks ! That's helpful !
