Hi there, Deb here! I know most of you are saying, “Who?” Well I admit, I sort of live in the dark ages and haven’t made my official cyber-debut…yet. 😀
I love the idea of re-purposing things, both in our lives and on our craft tables! Let’s talk about blister packs. You know what a blister pack is …..that annoying, impossible to get into, clear packaging that EVERYTHING comes in nowadays? Well, think of the possibilities that open up when instead of throwing away those packaging materials, you get a little “trashy”, punch their lights out and use them for your projects!
I love making my own embellies from this stuff….it’s so simple and FREE!
Use the flattest sides of the packaging and punch any shape to make your own “ghost embellishment.”
And voila! Instant “bubbles” for my layout!
Bubbles are only one option but there are unlimited embellishments you can make from package materials most people just throw away. Do you use up every last bit that you have for your projects? What are your favorite ways to get trashy?
Oh and here’s a bonus tip: You can also use the shaped packaging for easy disposable paint or glue trays. They’re easy peasy and no mess to clean up! 😀
Now go get trashy! 😀
And don’t forget, we’re sponsoring the latest prompt over at These Are a Few of My Favorite Things so create something about your Favorite Band and link it up HERE by Friday, August 13th!
