We have lots and lots of old CDs in our TV cabinet. Some of them have scratches all over that I thought of disposing them when I was spring cleaning the other day. But we never throw away old stuffs now do we? We recycle them! πŸ˜€

Besides CDs we also have lots of these eco-friendly shopping bags. Too many of them in fact! So I decided to recycle them too!

Let’s make a magnetic note holder from recyclables today πŸ™‚

Use the CD as a guide and draw a circle on the black shopping bag.

Draw another circle on the red shopping bag and cut.

Paste the black circle cut-out on the CD. Cut the red circle into half and paste. Cut smaller black circles and paste on the wings.

Paste two googly eyes.

Add the back, paste used clothes peg and a magnet over it.

I think the only items you needed to purchase is the googly eyes and magnet. The rest are totally from the cabinet!
