"3-D Wednesday"~REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE! ~ Episode 372

Good morning my creative friends! Welcome to another FUN 3-D Wednesday! For today, I thought it would be fun to make something using "Recycled" products & OH BOY, do we have some FUN stuff for you to see here today! 
For my "recycled" gift bag, I actually seen this HERE on pinterest! This ORIGINAL idea came from a SUPER TALENTED & not too mention "Clever" lady from a blog called "Older & Wiser"!  I decided to make mine a little different so it can be my own! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE how it came out & I assure you that I will DEFINITELY be making some MORE of these! I used some old jeans that didn't fit my son anymore! I also took that tissue out of a gift bag that my birthday present came in & stamped my "Coffee Background" stamp onto it! I chose that background because I thought it was appropriate since I put some VIA single servings coffee packets in the front pocket for her! Inside the bag is a nice "Grande" cup from starbucks.  You can see all the items I used listed below AND you can see how I made this in the video!

Everything I used for this gift bag:
~ White (Recycled) Tissue paper
~ Pocket from (Recycled) pair of jeans
~ Bow/Decoration also from same pair of jeans
~ Brown leaves are from my stash
~ Cream JUTE Ribbon "Liz's Paper Loft Boutique"

Here is my video showing how I put this CUTE recycled gift bag together!

Now onto my OH SO TALENTED design team! Don't forget to click on their names which will take you directly to their blogs & you can see what THEY recycled to come up w/these FABULOUS projects!
