How to Recycle Tyvek Envelopes into Eco-Friendly Valentine’s Day Cupcake Picks

Apologies because this post is coming a day early, but I wanted to get it out in time for Valentine’s Day.  Last week, I showed you how to make cute little heart pockets for the ones you love, but I can’t let those little bits and pieces of the USPS Postal Mailers go to waste, so I am making some cute cupcake picks to use them up.  Those mailers make for wonderful craft projects, so be sure to recycle them into something special.  (Just don’t go pick up the free ones from the post office – use them after they come to you!)  You can make all sorts of  recycled, repurposed, or upcycled crafts from these guys because they are so tough and strong.  Also make sure to recycle them after you are done.

I had a bunch of scraps left over from last week’s project, so I used that.  But wait!  First we have to make our cupcakes:

While they are in the oven, I’m going to stamp up some cupcake picks.  I don’t need much extra white space, so I can use lots of the scrap material.

You did make sure to add a splash of rum to that cupcake batter, didn’t you?
