As the summer rolls around and the weather warms up, it’s the perfect time to go dumpster-diving for those recycled materials to incorporate in your upcycled craft projects — and to provide a little inspiration, we invite you to explore the new and improved GreenCraft Magazine! We’ve introduced several new and enticing departments, including a Green Profile (a look into an especially green company or artist), Green Basics (a how-to article about making your own paints with an accompanying project), and Green Tips from the artists (giving you insight from seasoned GreenCrafters). This issue of epic celebrations also features L.K. Roberts’ birthday kit, and other projects from artists on how to make birthday wrapping, cards, and fun party supplies from recycled items. Also, Ella Wilson presents her funky matchbox magnets, Michelle Lichter uses umbrella spokes to create stunning pot markers, and Linda Harder creates an adorable and functional bag from a worn-out dress shirt.
