Use Your Old Catalogs In A New Way

How To Use Old Catalog for Pinterest

If you are in direct sales you know how expensive buying new catalogs can be. So having left over catalogs can become a pretty expensive habit. So I have seen where you can place a sticker on the back of the catalogs stating “Although this catalog may be old, take one look and you’ll be sold! Now that you’re a fan of what you see, simply contact me and get a new catalog free!” Or you can use them to make gift bags or mystery bags for your parties!

But after talking to my Director today, we discussed a few ideas to not only use these old catalogs but share the new catalogs and possibly gain hostess’! So here is what we came up with!

How To Use Old Catalog

What you’ll need:

  • old catalog
  • ruler
  • scissors
  • tape and or stapler

How To Use Old Catalogs Fold top To the bottom    How To Use Old Catalogs Fold Bottom To the Top

Tear out a page from the old catalog. You then will need to fold the bottom of the page 1.5 inches from the top and then fold the top from the bottom 1.5 inches. Opening each fold back out after you do so. You are just creating a crease right now.

How To Use Old Catalogs Fold each side

Then fold each side of the page so that the fold is 2 inches.

How To Use Old Catalogs cut each side

Then lay the page back out flat and you will see a crease in the middle of each side. You will want to cut on that crease only in the 2 inches you folded the sides into. Do not cut all the way across as this will become the bottom of your box. You then will fold each flap that you just cut over and tape in the middle to each other.

How To Use Old Catalogs Fold at an angel and middle

Each corner will have a little tab sticking out that you will need to fold at angles and then fold the flap back towards the middle of the page. Add a piece of tape to each of these tabs to keep them from popping up.

How To Use Old Catalogs Finished inside

This is what your page should look like after all your tabs are taped. Then pull the top of the page towards the bottom of the page and you will see how the creases you made will make the middle into a flat section, creating a box like shape.

How To Use Old Catalogs Fold tape and staple

Each side you will need to tape the inside and outside of the seams to keep it together.

How To Use Old Catalog add mini catalogs

Once it is all together this will make a great little display box for your mini catalogs to sit on the counter at your favorite coffee shops, salon or at your kiddos dance class! This is a easy way to use those old catalogs that you may have laying around for no cost to make! It took me about 3 minutes to complete each one of these! These could also be used as mini gift bags if you wanted to take a hole punch and add some ribbon to create a handle. Making great bonus hostess gifts or booking gifts at your parties as well. You could also add your business card to the front of this or a sticker with some specials you want to offer, the ideas are endless!

Tips to Choosing a #BathroomFaucets

BathFaucet_CapeAnne

When picking a new bathroom faucets, remember that the faucet can make or break your new bathroom makeover!  A new bathroom faucet can make a world of difference in the appearance of your bathroom. If you go to small or too large or a totally different style than the rest of your bathroom, you could lead to something like this and never have guests over!

ugly bathroom

Picture curiosity here.

First pick your budget! Faucets can range from as little as $25 and get as high as $400 depending on style, finish and brand. Just remember you get what you pay for. If you have a family and your faucet is going to get a lot of use, then you may want to spend a little more for a quality faucet that can withstand the abuse! If this is a powder room that is more for show than use, then a lesser one may be more your choice. Sirius_ZigaZaga-Mid

Then you need to know what style faucet  you are looking for. You don’t want something that is going to shock your guests and family in a bad way when they walk into your new bathroom. You want something functional but the whole idea of a bathroom re-do is to make it look fantastic! So figure out what style your bathroom is and find faucet styles in that category. Most faucet retailers will be able to help you determine which will look best with your bathroom if you are struggling to make a choice. But trial and error usually works best for me!

 Then you need to pick a finish of your new bathroom faucet. There are many types of finishes to pick from. Take your time and even take a couple types home and sit it out on your sink for a day or two to see which one fits best. You can always return the ones you don’t want! Here are some types of finishes to choose from:
  • chrome
  • brushed nickel
  • oil rubbed bronze
  • polished brass
  • tumbled bronze
  • distressed bronze
  • polished nickel pvd
  • polished brass pvd

After this, the rest is in your hands. You have to know what you like and what is going to work best for you and your household! Do you have tips to picking the best faucet? Share below!

Make Your Own Sprinkler

Make Your Own Sprinkler

With summer heat keeping the kiddos hot and bored, we thought we would figure out something to keep them cool and re-use something from our recycle bin! We saw this on Pinterest last summer and thought we would try it out!

We took a 2 liter bottle, cleaned it out and then removed the plastic from the outside. Take a knife and poke a few holes all around the mid to bottom of the bottle, we them added an old hose to the top and hung it from the tree. Turn the water on and let it go! Water went everywhere giving our girls a fun day in the water without breaking the bank!

My mom told me this is the most hillbilly thing she has ever seen me make, but hey when it is FREE and keeps the kiddos happy, I don’t mind being hillbilly!
