We're back with our monthly feature where we use something unexpected and cheap on our projects. This month we used bread tags and ties. This was my idea and once I got started I wanted to kick myself (wouldn't blame Erin and Kerri if they felt the same way :)) Erin did learn that they melt...so fair warning to all of you stay away from your embossing gun with these! All that said I think you'll really enjoy what we came up with and you will definitely be forced to think outside of your normal box!
Erin incorporated them into a nifty storage idea for bakers twine!
Kerri disguised hers with paint and turned it into a monster. Think of the possibilities for all sorts of Halloween creatures...your kids would have a blast!
Kerri also covered hers in alcohol ink and used them to create a banner on a card.
We never use up all the ties that come with trash bags, so when I found a whole set of the pretty blue ones in my drawer I grabbed them. I set them as the backdrop for the black frame. They give a funky corrugated look with some nice shine to it.
For the last card I wanted to use the bread tags totally raw and see if I could make them work on a card. It makes for a very graphic, funky feel...but I think it works :)
