I save my bottle corks and then make a "cork board" out of them- super glue them to cardboard and put them in an old frame, its functional and looks nice.

Don't put the bottle corks in the garbage. When you are done with your experiment, send them to:

They will recycle them and make cork tiles out of them!

Hi there. Welcome back. Just wondering what the baggage tags/receipts are made from. If Tyvek, you can send them back to DuPont for recycling:
