People all over the globe use millions of metric tons of paper every year. Luckily, it is one of the most recyclable materials. It is said to be a sustainable product since paper, which is usually made from wood pulp, can be easily reused, recycled, and renewed. Although not all paper products can be considered recyclable, there are still a whole lot of them that can be reused such as magazines, newspapers, and office papers.

Have you tried recycling papers? Do you collect paper scraps simply because they’re too pretty to throw away? Or maybe you keep some papers because they hold memories you don’t want to forget? Whatever it may be, we hope that the layouts featured here will spark your interest to put those papers into good use and flaunt them in a scrapbook project.

Newspapers

Newspapers have been around for millennia. Although people nowadays seldom read the news in print because of the digital transformation, we cannot deny that it became a big part of our lives. Newspapers brought us news and information longer than any media platform. We used to keep updated with the local and even international happenings through the help of this paper.

Have you or someone you know been featured or mentioned in a newspaper? Why not show how special it is for you by displaying it in a layout? Or at least, use some newspaper as a background to your story.

Cards & Invitations

Most cards and invitations are made from high-quality paper. Unlike the ordinary paper we know, they are usually shiny and have a smooth surface. Other cards and invitations can be textured and some may even have a fragrant scent. But one thing is for sure, they are durable and very appealing to the eyes.

Have you tried creating cards and invitations for your loved ones? Or have you kept one yourself as a remembrance of a memorable event? Why not showcase them in your next project!
