Herby Shredded Paper Briquettes

I made herby shredded paper briquettes inspired by an idea I found on Red Ted Art using my Fellowes Powershred 63CB. Perfect for these colder nights and also brilliant for camping trips and even getting that bonfire going!

Take a watch. I’d absolutely LOVE it if you could give me a thumbs up and subscribe too. It will help me find all you channels for a start, and give me a big dose of warm fuzzies! 🙂

    What a great idea! #bigpinklink

    Weirdly I shredded a tonne of stuff a few weeks ago and wondered if there was something I could do with it all – must remember for next time 🙂 PS my shredder isn’t quite as fancy as that beast! Now I’ve opened YouTube I may aswell just cancel all plans for the day! #bigpinklink

    • October 11, 2016 / 11:33 am

      There are actually quite a few ideas out there!!

  3. October 10, 2016 / 8:47 am

    Great idea! Much more interesting than using it for guinea-pig bedding! #bigpinklink

    • October 11, 2016 / 11:33 am

      That’s brilliant too though, any way of using is great!

    This looks brilliant and so easy. I’m not sure I could do it though, I have such an irrational dislike of wet paper, it’s like nails down a chalkboard. I wonder if it would work with sawdust or something instead….

      I have this with wooden ice lolly sticks. I have goosebumps just talking about them!

    • October 11, 2016 / 11:31 am

      Haha, anything to reduce the epic waste load that goes off in our green boxes! Junk mail galore!

    What a fab idea!! I LOVE shredding, there’s something strangely therapeutic about it. My kids would love this, just playing with the mushed up pulp, anything they can get their hands dirty. I think we will give this a try! #bigpinklink

    • October 11, 2016 / 11:30 am

      Oh brilliant! Do let me know how you get on if you give it a go!

  6. October 10, 2016 / 1:11 pm

    What a cool idea, I love crafts. Subscribed and commented on Youtube too #bigpinklink

  7. October 10, 2016 / 1:38 pm

    You clever thing! I think if I tried this I’d end up setting fire to something unintentionally! #bigpinklink

  8. October 10, 2016 / 2:29 pm

    I love this idea! As you say – great for camping. Thank you for sharing. Alison x #bigpinklink

    • October 11, 2016 / 11:29 am

      We’re going to have a camp out next week so I’ll try them!!

  9. October 10, 2016 / 3:12 pm

    These are so cool! I actually had never heard of these before today!

    I’ve subscribed to your channel but I am yet to make any videos.


    • October 11, 2016 / 11:28 am

      Oh cool! I will find you! I’m just starting out with it really. I’ve been making vids for forever but not got into promoting properly until recently.

  10. October 10, 2016 / 3:41 pm

    This is fantastic, my mum has a lovely old log burner fire that she lights every evening in the winter, she would absolutely love these! I think she also has a paper shredder! Thanks for sharing! #bigpinklink

    • October 11, 2016 / 11:27 am

      Oh brilliant! Yes, they are a wonderful idea. Maybe you could make a whole load for a nice Christmas present!

  11. October 10, 2016 / 5:49 pm

    When I first read the title I thought it was a recipe… I blame sleep deprivation ! What a great idea. Gets rid of junk mail and provides fuel. Great way to recycle! #bigpinklink

    • October 11, 2016 / 11:26 am

      Hahahaha I can absolutely see where you’re coming from! 😀

    • October 11, 2016 / 11:26 am

      We’re definitely going to give it a go on the campfires.

  12. October 10, 2016 / 8:11 pm

    I had never heard of these before but they look great. Love that you would be able to smell the herbs! #bigpinklink

  13. October 10, 2016 / 8:50 pm

    I SO need to get a shredder – not only for practical purposes, but because then I could make cool stuff. #bigpinklink

    • October 11, 2016 / 11:25 am

      They’re so useful. We get so much stuff with our name and address on and it’s always better to be safe then sorry!

  14. October 10, 2016 / 8:59 pm

    Love thrifty little idea’s like this. I never had much to shred though! I may make use this as an excuse hehe! #bigpinklink

    • October 11, 2016 / 11:24 am

      Oh thank you! You are so lucky, I just shredded all the junk mail!!! 😀

  15. October 10, 2016 / 9:16 pm

    Lovely idea! looks really nice

  16. October 11, 2016 / 5:57 am

    Thumbs up from us! This is a clever idea to re-use unwanted paper. Have given your video a like.

  17. October 11, 2016 / 5:44 pm

    Superb idea, great idea for recycling waste paper, I love Red Ted Art – what an fantastic blog, and yours too!

  18. October 12, 2016 / 2:44 pm

    Never heard of this before but great idea! #bigpinklink

  19. October 16, 2016 / 8:50 pm

    Ooo we have an open fire and I’m pretty sure my shredders full! Will be giving this ago. Thanks for hosting #bigpinklink xx

  20. October 16, 2016 / 10:19 pm

    I love watching your videos Lou. My parents have a log burner and are also avid campers so I’m thinking these would make a great (cheap and recycled) Christmas gift for them this year, thank you for the idea 🙂 #bigpinklink xx

  21. October 17, 2016 / 7:52 pm

    Oh this is a fab idea for getting rid of waste paper. We actually bought some logs to burn on our wood burner recently so I’ll have to remember this next time we need some.

    • October 19, 2016 / 9:39 am

      It really is a brilliant idea! And so simple. We’re doing a camp out tomorrow night so will give them a test! xx
