I recycle clear acetate from used products to use later...I use the small pieces of acetate for shaker cards and projects. Punched circles make great scallops.

Another recycle tip, I use cereal boxes (or other boxes) for chipboard to make mini albums or chipboard shapes. I also use the corrugated cardboard boxes and peel off the top layer of cardboard to get to the corrugated part and use that for a fun texture on cards, scrapbook pages or even the base pages of a mini album. You can leave the cardboard as is, ink it or paint it up. I love "free" repurposed scrappy things.
