DIY Summer Storage/ Makeover ProjectThis time around, when it’s time for summer and you no longer need all the winter stuff: stow away the heavy drapes, the throws, rugs, extra cushions and so on. Stow them away in an organized manner so that you can use them again next year. Similarly all the stuff you have lying around that you don’t need right now, segregate, organize and arrange it in a way that it is out of the way right now, but is easy to locate and access when you do need it. Arrange and organize stuff in boxes and print out labels to stick on to the boxes. Be as detailed as you want – list out all the stuff you have in the boxes, the date of packing and number the boxes.
Eco-Friendly Gift Wrap and Greetings

In the alternative you can even wrap gifts in eco friendly plain recycled paper and then add distinctive touches such as customized labels or tags printed on your own printer. Also, rather than store bought greetings, you can print and send your own – you can ensure that you use eco friendly paper such as recycled paper or non-bleached paper for your greetings.
DIY Custom Party Gear

One great idea for a party takeaway is photo giveaways. Ensure that someone with a decent camera is taking pictures at your party. Ask them to get at least one good shot of each of your guests, preferably having a good time. Then at the end of the party, just before everyone is ready to leave, hand out a printed picture to each of your guests in memory of the good time they had at your party!
