All about using what you have and crafting it into something else – recycling, reusing and repurposing objects.

In this book you will find over 75 step-by-step projects and more than 25 illustrated quick ideas to transform old, discarded items into desirable pieces of jewellery, décor, stationery, furniture and more.

Learn how to use simple craft techniques, general craft supplies and just a bit of creativity to create one-of-a-kind items to wear, display or use. Apart from the step-by-step projects, the author shares other valuable advice such as how to give items that vintage look, where to find vintage images and ideas for second-hand items to use in your projects. Carla’s secret is to see the possibility in everything. Mom’s old tins, Grandma’s broken brooches and Dad’s collection of keys are magically transformed into usable, practical and beautiful things to cherish.
