Recycled Palettes

Instead of throwing out plastic packaging keep it to use for a mini paint tray when you're painting your chipboard.

When you print out something that you only need for a short time, don't just throw it away when you are done. If you aren't planning to properly recycle it, use it for under your work area. I have a small stack of papers on my desk at all times. I work over them. They are great for stamping off the edge of cardstock, inks, paints, glues, etc. You won't get your desk messy and they last a long time. When it gets way too painty and gunky, then it has lived its life and you can move down to the next layer.

Use old phonebooks for gluing, etc. Once a page is all gluey, just turn to the next page and you have a brand new palette.
