Vintage Suitcase Friday! (and Plastic Bottle Caps)

Did you know that plastic bottle caps are not accepted at some recycling centers?  They are made from a type of plastic (#5) called polypropylene.  You can check Earth911 to see what type of recycling is available in your area.  It says my local Whole Foods accepts #5 plastic (and even Brita filters!) Also worth looking into is Recycle Caps with Aveda is a program in which caps are collected throughout the community, by salons, in school, etc. and then made into caps for Aveda products.

Kiwi magazine has a great idea for repurposing plastic caps.  I would love to find more ideas like this!

Go here to see the directions for making these super-fun magnets!

Time to link up!


  1. Thanks for hosting your fun party, it's always interesting. I love the bottlecap magnets idea, I will have to try it. I've seen teeny tiny pin cushions made from bottle caps, so cute. How about a "memory" game for kids, put a picture inside and have them turn them over to try and guess the matching pics? Think of the fun when they mix them all up.

  2. HI! Due to the huge success of my Linky Love Library page, I am changing the way I organize it.

    I would LOVE it if you would come and link up your party to the day of the week you host it.

    It will make it easier for people to find it and will give you a thumbnail for your party.

    You can link up to the library here:

    I enjoy your blog and your party each week, so I hope you join in and link up!
