Sacchettino bits and bobs (riciclo avanzi)

  
Oggi ho avuto un po' di tempo per me (finalmente!!) :D e ho tirato fuori la scatola degli avanzi piena di ritagli che ogni tanto penso di buttare via... ma naturalmente non ci riesco... LOL :D Ormai non riesco più a chiudere la scatola...!!
Ho cercato anche un po' di abbellimenti con le stesse tinte e ho iniziato la mia battaglia contro gli avanzi :D
Da questi avanzi (+ altri ancora!) ho creato due card (che vi mostrerò in altri post) e questo robusto sacchettino (circa 20 cm x 10 cm).
La base è un pezzo di una vecchia cartellina di Manila color kraft, da cui ho ricavato un sacchettino seguendo queste facilissime istruzioni:

Poi ci ho incollato sopra un pezzo di cartoncino color crema che era nel mucchio degli avanzi; l'ho embossato con l'EF Creative Expression Rambling Berries. Dopo aver stondato gli angoli, ho distressato i bordi con l'apposito attrezzo e con il DI Brushed Corduroy, poi ho usato il DI Seedless Preserved per sfumare la texture.
Il cuore lo avevo tagliato con la fustella Sizzix Bigz-Heart Scallop usando un cartone molto robusto; l'ho ricoperto di gesso e poi colorato con i DI. Mi piace molto la texture del cartone.
Ho costruito la girandola con un minuscolo quadratino di carta patterned. Ne avete già visto altre fatte con pezzettini di juta (QUI). Ci ho incollato al centro una piccola gemma.
Il cordino grezzo annodato è quello che si usa in cucina per fare per gli arrosti  :D.
I piccoli cuori erano nelle mie bustine di forme tagliate da avanzi (fustella Bebunny-Crafter Companion); erano bianchi, li ho colorati con i DI.
Anche la scritta "hugs" brand Law Fawn era già pronta, l'avevo tagliata da un pezzo di pagina di un vecchio libro che avevo messo sotto i miei esperimenti con gli spray.
L'ho incollata su un'altra scritta per dare spessore e l'ho ricoperta con il Glossy Accents. Per mettere in evidenza il sentiment, ci ho messo sotto un altro avanzo di carta patterned.
Anche la sottile strisciolina viola con il piercing è -ovviamente- un avanzo. Quando vi dico che non butto via nulla non scherzo! :)
La farfallina di legno l'ho tolta da un vecchio nastro; al centro c'era un buco passa-nastro, così l'ho riempito con Nuvo Drops glitterato, aggiungendo altre gocce per creare il corpo della farfalla.
Ho fatto due buchi nel sacchetto, fronte e retro, e ci ho fatto passare un avanzo di nastro per poter chiudere il sacchetto dopo averlo riempito. Il sacchetto è molto capiente e robusto, ci stanno comodamente le tre saponette profumate che devo regalare a una mia cara collega.

This might be the craftiest and most stunning gift bag I've ever seen yet! Unique and wonderful and the best part is that you used all those leftover bits and bobs to put it together! This is so pretty with those mauve tones and I especially love the way you did that "Hugs" die cut! Fabulous details and a wonderful creation! It's so nice to know you found a little time to create again :)

MaryH ha detto...

Wow, you've got some fantastic recycling & used in such creative ways! I love that you turned the manila folder into something so useful and still so beautiful with all the fun & pretty things you've done here. I think my favorite is the impressive hugs with the book paper, then making it so shiny & dimensional. The tiny windmill was another delightful touch. I'm so happy you found some 'me' time and obviously had a lot of fun, while cleaning a bit of UFO-s! Fun for you, fun for us to see what you created! TFS & Have a great week Hugs
