Trash to Treasure Workshop

We had a fun workshop at the library this weekend. Nancy Judd, Santa Fe artist & environmentalist, taught participants how to make a candleholder out of magazine clippings & glass bottles & how to make origami boxes. All the paper & bottles we used were recycled!

For those who attended the program, here is Nancy's GOOP recipe:

1. Mix 2 cups cold water, 3 tsp sugar, ½ cup flour
2. Mix with 2 cups boiling water
3. Boil
4. Cool

Also, here are some Origami Box instructions & an instructional video from YouTube. (Neither of these are Nancy's instructions, but I thought they might be helpful.)

For more about Nancy, check out her Recycle Runway website.
