What's black and white and green all over? These items. While that wasn't funny, it was true because the black and white items featured here were all either handmade with recycled paper or were printed on recycled paper. I know what you may be thinking: But what about that sculpture looking thing in the middle? That doesn't look like it's made from paper. Not only are you not funny, Carolyn, but you're also a liar, and I don't take kindly to dishonest, comedically-impaired artists/bloggers.
Well, thank you for your feedback and I respect your opinion, but in this case, I must politely object. Perhaps not so much today, but I think I'm normally pretty funny (and my sister thinks I'm hilarious), and I'm always very honest. For example, that sculpture looking thing is actually a scrap-paper mache lampshade by popRenaissance.
So, I think now we can all agree that:
a) I'm Leslie-Knope-funny (I'm not sure if that would universally be considered a compliment, but I find her both hilarious and eerily-- and embarrassingly-- similar to myself),
b) I'm more honest than that old bag 'o beard, Abe (for example, see point a. I could've said I'm Amy-Poehler-funny, which would have been more personally flattering, but I chose to be honest with you and compare myself to a fictional character who is fairly ridiculous.),
c) and that you can do some pretty amazing things with recycled paper.
That being said, the rules of paper recycling aren't always black and white. Sometimes they're pink. Or turquoise. Or even gold. All of these pretty pastel pieces were created from recycled paper by Etsy's pros-- except for Giddy 4 Paisley's peach pom poms which you can make for yourself with the help of their DIY kit, of course.
