I do a lot of work with recycled materials, and one of my favorites to work with is disposable aluminum cookie sheets.  Here are four entirely different craft ideas for disposable aluminum.  Turns out, it is a very versatile medium!

    Where do you find disposible cookie sheets that don’t have writing on the bottom ?

      You can find them at any party supply store such as Party City. Lately, I’ve been using the lids from buffet pans. You can find them there for about 80 cents each.
