Crafting Tip of the Week #160- Craftcycling...

 Happy Monday Crafty Bloggers!

Today I wanted to share another craft recycling idea.

I am sure I will have more to add as I keep finding ways to use things I might otherwise discard.
This week I wanted to share that if you find yourself buying drinks in clear plastic cups that come with those domed plastic lids, you should keep them.

They are great to contain paint, glue, water and other crafty solutions that you need to use with a paint brush.
Here are a few reasons why:
1- You can control how much you want to use for a particular project and only pour in a small amount at a time. It's better to use a little at a time and add to it as you need it.
2- If the product is in its' own container with its' own assigned brush you won't contaminate other paints or solutions.
3- You will have a lid on it with a hole in the center that will allow for some time to rescue your liquid product being contained if it falls over-spill control.
4-You can rest your brush inside the cup.
5-You can easily see what is inside.

 Now you may come up with some more ideas as to why this would work for you and that would be great. I just know it's been a big help to me the few times I tried it. It's especially handy when you have kids working on school projects that involve paint.

Hope you remember to craft-cycle your see thru-dome lidded cups!

Tune in tomorrow!
