My writing sabbatical is continuing just a little longer than expected...after getting through Girl Scout cookie season, I am now directing a lot of my attention back to the fact that we still don't have a kitchen.  I am hoping that life gets a little calmer soon because, well, I miss you guys!

My top picks from last week are:

Recycled Bookmarks

This month's Craft Lightning is all about the recycled projects! And as it turns out, when your Girl Scout troop sells over 3,900 boxes of cookies in one season, you have a lot, and I do mean A LOT of recyclable items at your disposal (ba dum dum!)!


This couldn't have been an easier project either!  I gook the empty cookie boxes and broke them open.  Then I used my paper cutter and sliced them into a reasonable bookmark shape.  


When they were all cut, I used a hole punch and strung some yarn in them! Super easy!  This would be a VERY VERY easy craft for Girl Scouts to do themselves. On a Daisy level, this could be used towards the "Using Resources Wisely" patch too!


Another idea is that you could print off the Girl Scout Promise and put it on the back of the bookmark.  Either way this helps recycle those boxes!

Don't forget to check all the other Craft Lightning posts going on this week too!  There are some good ones!
