5 fun ways to use those college brochures

By Tkrause
Is your bedroom floor littered with college marketing materials? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Just about every high school senior is dealing with an avalanche of glossy brochures that keep jamming up their mailboxes. And, the worst part is that some of this junk mail keeps coming from the same colleges (Desperate much?). Hello? Stop sending us shit already. Yes, your pictures of smiling students and uber green campuses are exactly what will make us want to attend. No, instead we will use our creative talents to recycle those pretty propaganda pamphlets (Ever heard of the Green movement? Stop killing trees!). And, unlike the colleges that spent way too much money to print and mail them to every single senior on the planet, our fun crafts only required a little bit of tape and imagination.

Holiday gift wrap

Say it with flowers

Party supplies

party horns No cash flow? Turn those college pamphlets into party horns and coasters for your upcoming holiday parties!

It’s getting hot in here

Pet formal wear

Now it’s your turn. Have some fun and show us your creative uses for all those marketing brochures piling up in your room. Shoot us a pic on Twitter or post it to our Facebook page.
