i was feeling ambivalent about using flyers to advertise my classes. flyers are an effective way to let people know about my work, but i felt concerned about the extra impact on the environment of the more usual option of professional printing on glossy paper.
so i decided to use simple photocopy printing of my own hand drawn designs, and to encourage those who might pick up one of my flyers to re-purpose them.
here are some suggestions for re-using my flyers –
* use the back of the flyer for writing a shopping list or phone message
* spend a little time colouring-in the designs i have drawn…colouring-in can be a very relaxing process, and might lead to some creative doodling on the back of the flyer!
* cut the flyer into squares and use for origami. I’ve included some pictures and links below with instructions for a crane, and a really simple yet very functional bookmark.
i’d love to hear your ideas for repurposing flyers too…feel free to share your ideas and creations on my facebook page Alex Westaway Yoga.
