Cool Easter Grass

You can use pages from an old book for this project.
I used pages from a discarded book called PAGE ONE

Run the pages through your friendly 
neighborhood shredder...

And Voila! Instant "cool" Easter Grass! 
And did I mention free?

  9. very cool.. that would look so good with the page wrapped Easter eggs I saw on another blog, but I don't remember now where I saw them. Since I haven't decorated for Easter yet.. I may do this, thanks for the ideal.

  12. I LOVE it :) What a fabulous upcycle! I've done this with old colored flyers but never with eco-chic.

  13. That's a green idea for sure! I've been known to do that a time or two myself!! I always save paper shreds from packages, too!

  14. I love this idea! I hate the shredded plastic grass so I have never used it - ever - so I have used colored tissue paper. I will definitely try the shredded newspaper idea - thanks!
