Gift Cards made into bracelet

You just never know what common items you have around the house that can be repurposed into beautiful new items!  Concord, NC native Jessica Garmon opened a recycling art studio recently, naming it “Trashed”.  Her creative ideas are inspiring others to turn just about any object into a piece of art, jewelry or decoration.  “Trashed” offers classes on how to create art, candles, handbags and even re-upholstering furniture.  Jessica has unique ideas: she uses old seat belts to make rugs; cut up gift cards to make bracelets (see picture); magazines to make 3- dimensional wall hangings; light bulbs to make floating candles!

Here is a list of the items you can donate to the studio currently:
