Rock What Ya Got: Recycled Rag Ribbon Last week I found myself walking through Target with the wedding registry for some friends and ended up picking these funky everyday dishes. rag.4 Of course I spaced gift wrap until I got home. Actually that doesn’t really surprise me because buying bags and tissue paper is one of my biggest pet peeves. Total waste of money. I dug through my wrapping stash at home and picked this plain white craft paper over the SpongeBob SquarePants birthday variety. rag.6 Then I dug through the Bat Scrap organizer for some scrap ribbon and came up with nothing long enough that would match. Nada. Zilch. That is until I remembered the four massive bins of old shirts still waiting to be recycled, upcycled or stash-busted. rag.7 No problem. I cut a couple of 1” strips with a rotary cutter to wrap around the box of plates … rag.5 … and some 1/4” strips that pulled nice and tight to make them nice and thin like string or yarn. That weird shaped stack of bowls got a simple confetti colored tie … rag.2 … while the box got a quick wrap and easy knots around the corners. rag.9 Easy. Fast. Done. So give rag ribbon a try. I bet you could pull together a quick shabby-chic wrap for your next party using fabric you already have on hand AND in colors that match the gift inside. Because us women care about stuff like that. rag.3 Happy wrapping and stash-bustifying!

Grosgrain Ribbon Pillow Turning a plain pillow into a piece of art is as simple as adding a few cents' worth of ribbon. Lay the ribbon in an interesting design, pin it in place, and then attach it with fusible web.
North Pole made out of solar light from dollar store. Kids would love this for their room. I want to make the Christmas one, and a black one, so it looks like an old fashioned street light, with interchangeable signs. it could be used year round, spanish moss, and have little flowers, or clovers, or spiders/pumpkins… an every day decoration! The possibilities are endless, and I am in love.
