Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time




Today is Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time. The goal is to re-use, re-purpose and clean out your scraps. I chose to re-purpose a store bag from David's Tea...I love the colours and thought I'd go all white on that pretty background. This is the project that I SHOULD have used for made in minutes...took only 10 minutes...yeah!!! I have a drawer that I keep only white, black and kraft scraps in...I try to go there first...but it doesn't always happen. I pulled all the white paper from this drawer and went to town with Emma's dies...love it! Thanks for stopping by...click HERE to check out the other DT projects...Lee-Ann :)



Recipe:

  • My Creative Time-Sweetheart and xoxo dies, Fun stitched edge dies, Stitched postage frame die
  • David's Tea store bag
  • Celebrate it white satin ribbon
  • Trendy Twine white twine
  • AC glitter button
  • white tulle from Michaels
