Here is a great "Recycling idea"!
It is Flower Garland idea from a blog called Zakka Life, which has lots of "natty" ideas actually.
This is the link for the tutorial for these flowers.
They are made from the pages of catalogues. You could, however, adapt for scrapbooking paper, as although you need a number, these are just strips of paper.
Also it's a jolly good way to keep the little ones occupied for a while, and with the materials of just an old magazine and some glue.... it's a winner!
