Paper has so many possibilities when it comes to crafting. There are many different paper crafts to keep you occupied. Paper can go a long way if you use your creativity. It is so versatile that both adults and children can enjoy making things out of it. Some crafts that you can make out of paper include:

Cards. Special occasions can be made even more special with a handmade card. It will give extra meaning to your greeting because of the time and effort you put into it.  A few ideas for card making include pop-up cards, 3-D cards, and tri-fold cards.

 Origami. This art of paper folding is popular with many children. The fun designs lure children into hours of fun as they fold away. Adults can also enjoy this craft with more complex designs. Folding a piece of paper into something new can be a challenge that requires a lot of practice and skill.

Miniature Paper Flowers. You can leave your gardening outdoors. This craft will help you create flowers from paper that look real. Despite being easy to do, you can come up with very detailed flowers. These can be used for embellishing and decorating other craft projects.  

Party Favour Boxes. One thing that people look forward to in a party are the favors. Instead of using the traditional plastic bag, do Mother Nature a favor and use paper boxes. These are environmentally friendly and look great. Favor boxes are easy to personalize to fit any theme and come in many different designs.

What’s in the running this year as a more-than-suitable gift for Pops on his specially marked third Sunday of June? Almost as if by traditional mandate, it’s usually around this time, right before the summer starts, that many people begin looking for military watches because they’re such a sure way to wow Dad. But with so much nifty gadgetry going on, how does one go about selecting the coolest watch of all? Maybe you can go with an established favorite — the Traser H3 Watch is one of the finest, most precise, most carefully made mechanisms in the world. We have your Father’s Day gift here! its watch box must surely read.

And the deets: The special watch uses mb-microtechs Trigalight technology that allows it to originate its own light source with tritium gas electron emission. It’s probably a given that the number of assenting Dads, to the question of who’d enjoy explaining their watch technology to friends and family, could not be counted on a single person’s fingers and toes. Dad will be so proud to have such a unique military watch as only Traser watches use the special illumination technology. So, if you’ve saved your pennies, you have a few more weeks to get your father something that he’ll be proud to wear for decades to come.

Cutting down our office’s energy costs

A lot of the stuff that I do at work is tracking office and company costs. One day while I was doing that I was kind of surprised with the amount that we had to pay one of these past few months. Even if it was a lot colder outside and we were using more energy by running the heat, I thought that we were stil spending too much. So I decided to go online and find out information about better energy services in our area.

While I was doing my big search online, I found some infromatino about Texas electric rate and decided to do a little more investigating. I presented it to my boss and he was really surprised by what I found. So we’re switching out the old energy plan for this new one.

When I presented the information for that plan, I suggested that we look into being more energy efficient in a few other ways around the office to save even more money. So I’m working on a plan to implement that.
