Remaking projects aren’t only my favorite pastime, but they’re also my career, the title of my book, and the subject matter of this very blog that you’re reading. So when our friends at The Naked Grape Wine asked me to participate in the RE:MAKE event put on by Brit + Co. in San Francisco, I grabbed my scissors and fashioned the words “Count me in!!” out of the closest piece of scrap paper.
I’ll be there on October 4th and 5th representing TerraCycle at The Naked Grape Wine station where you can come learn about how this wine is made and why their new 3 liter box wine package is fully recyclable from bag to box. On site, we’ll even be upcycling The Naked Grape 3 liter wine boxes into business card holders that participants can make and take with them. The rest of the scraps will be transformed into a sign that is being custom made just for this event. If you’re on the west coast, sign up and RE:MAKE with us! It’s budget friendly, too, because admission on Saturday is free.
If you can’t RE:MAKE it there, you can still remake it on your own. Follow along with the template and the step-by-step below to create your own business card holder from that wine box or other thin cardboard scrap. Let’s get down to business.
