Reuse & Repurpose: Paper Pleasers

Sometimes the easiest and most dramatic impressions are made when they involve paper. Take, for instance these enchanting discs hovering in the windows of J. Crew on Fifth Avenue. They appear to be made from magazine pages or catalog circulars that were folded into circles and then suspended among mannequins showing off the latest styles. Throw in a spritz or two of this season's zesty orange, and you've got a recycled display prop that's 100 percent recyclable!
