Nuno Magazine – Painted Desert Giveaway

I am thrilled for this weeks giveaway from Nuno Magazine, as I have been a fan ever since previewing the first issue late last year. The variety of eco-friendly projects featured in each issue inspires me month after month. There is something for everyone nestled in each issue from home projects to projects to create with your kids – each page is filled with arts and crafts, enticing you to handcraft your own.

Nuno is a quarterly ad-free e-magazine devoted to eco-friendly crafts, knitting, sewing and crochet. They use recycled or repurposed materials in almost all the projects they do.

Nuno is created by Elizabeth Abernathy Braff and her sister Rachel Abernathy-Graham. Elizabeth’s husband also contributes some of the photographs. Each issue is built around a central theme. Below is a little preview of the inspiring projects and fabulous photography you will find in each issue. Complete instructions and templates are also included so you can easily create the projects seen or use to inspire your own creations.

All the issues are ad-free and can be purchased for $5.00 (PDF download). $1 from each issue sold is contributed to a humanitarian project – The current project helps provide support for child-headed households in Kenya.

The current issue, Painted Desert, is themed around the American Southwest and native American Indian culture. This issue boasts 23 craft projects created from recycled or repurposed materials. Some of the projects, featured above, include Paper Mache Trays, Paper Beads, Chi-wee Knitted Pillows, Fabric Owl Toys, and Paper Bag Feather Notebooks.
