Cava-ing

Cava / champagne corks are one of the things I have trouble throwing away if we've been celebrating - they just seem too well made to be disposable packaging and the hoarder in me always thinks that there must be a good use for it. This one, from our New Year's celebrations, escaped the bin and got used for some carving; also known as cava-ing :D

Planning and cava-ing!
Printed cotton and the final zip case!

I really enjoyed this project - a great excuse to be keeping Cava corks in the future! What do you find difficult to chuck?

  2. I know what you mean, I have to be strict with myself! Just think of that famous quote by William Morris:
    "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
    It helps!

  3. This is such a good idea Cally and you've printed it beautifully. I have a job throwing anything away and then when I do - a couple of weeks later I need it.

  4. Thank you Nicky! Maybe it's human nature to hold onto things, just in case :)
