About the author

Denise Brown studied graphic design, beginning her career in book design and packaging, and becoming the creative and publishing director of her own company. Craft and design was always one of her passions and, having worked with many renowned craftspeople in the 27 years she spent in publishing, she is now producing her own creations. Currently, she is teaching art and craft, but plans to spend more time on her own work.

The author is based in Bedforshire, UK.

How many times have you been through your post, and ended up with a pile of barely marked envelopes? Are you organized enough to keep them for future use, do you throw them in the recycling, or do you start to wish there were more satisfying ways of reusing them? Whether you are stuck on the subway, or just stuck indoors, you will find plenty of inspiration here to pass the time, and to empty your trash can. There are instructions for making personal items such as jewelry, stationery from mini notebooks to business cards, household necessities such as jar labels and a chopsticks holder, things for kids to make and play with, and festive decorations for everything from Christmas to Valentine’s Day. You can even create a fly whisk from a plain paper envelope, or make something more elaborate from lined or colored versions.
