Reuse & Repurpose: A Tisket a Tasket ....

Don't throw out those seed catalogs! Take a tip from Alice Quinn, the creative mother of the fabulously crafty Michael Quinn. Cut the old publications into strips and weave them into a colorful basket just like the one she did for me.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter


  1. That is beautiful, a recycled art piece that can stand alone as art or double as storage. I must learn how to weave these...

  2. My Grandmother use to make those out of Christmas cards and would display her next years cards in them. Wish I still had them. She was ahead of her time. One of my post for Christmas will be her Christmas ornaments she made with old Christmas cards. They were elegant.

  3. You could do the same with old calendar pages, or old maps. The possibilities are almost endless.

  4. Oh my Gosh I love this! AND...I just happen to have a catalog sitting on my countertop! My lucky day. It's wonderful!
