Default Altered items

Does anyone here make altered items. For example, take a jelly roll pan and turn it into a magnetic message board? I did some when I was into scrapbooking big time but haven't done any lately. I'm looking for ideas for things to make in the next year and use for gifts. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Rose, I love to recycle stuff - to re-purpose stuff!

Only got a couple more minutes before I have to go somewhere. No time for a long post. Here's a tip for now.

Goggle crafts plus some other keywords. For example:

crafts disposable pans
crafts used candles
crafts paper plates
crafts socks
crafts sweetgum balls
crafts paperclips
crafts soda bottles

There are tons of free instructions on how-to with just about anything that you want to work with to turn it into something else. From rags to rugs and cardboard cartons to furniture.

Good luck with your searching.

I'm behind, as usual, and back to thinking along this line. NCLee I want to Sat a belated thank you for your suggestion. Right now I'm working on turning some empty cigar boxes into prayer and treasure boxes. I think I'll also decorate some in the colors for the local colleges and universities and even our pro and semi-pro sports teams.
