I love to recycle and make use of items that might otherwise go in the trash, especially grocery bags. Secretly, I ask for paper because I love to wrap with them. I wrapped LOTS of gifts today in recycled bags and got out my Ad-tech glue gun, Laura Kelly buttons from Buttons Galore and twine that Canvas Corp sent me to play with. This is what I came up with.
I started with this!
After I wrapped the gifts, I gathered my favorite two colors of Laura Kelly buttons from Buttons Galore for the holidays, Radical Red and Candy Apple Green. I especially love the one for Anna where I glued the buttons on first and then wrapped the twine around them.
I love the way they came out. My favorite though is for Jordan. It is just so…elegant. I tied twine around the gift and then threaded some through to tie on the button.
I ended up using candy canes to create ornaments too. This is what I did. I simply used hot glue to put them together and then tied twine on them to give them a finishing touch. Find out what I did with them on the Buttons Galore Fifteen MINUTE Friday blog.
Cute, don’t you think?
Happy Making and Creating A Magical Christmastime,
