With everything that's going on with the nation's "economic" crisis, the whole reuse, recycle thing is making a comeback. People are trying to find ways where they can cut cost and still be able to live a good life.
That's the whole inspiration for this project. I turned these.....
I used some of my scrapbook supplies and a few glue dots and brought new life to items that would be otherwise thrown away.
I turned the Victoria Secret shopping bag into a Valentine gift bag. I was inspired by the red bird paper, I believe it was from this collection. To my surprise I had one bird chipboard that I was able to use as a tag.
The tree was cut out from a pattern paper from the same paper line.
Here's the view from the back. I really love the scallop punch from Fiskars!
and the little girl stockings packaging was changed into a treat box. I loved the plastic clear window of the packaging. I used the same bird paper. I just loved it!
here's what the back looks like

layered some flowers and scrap ribbons.
So there you have it, if you're looking for a "crafty" way to say I love you, go rummage through your trash (just don't get too dirty) and look for a fun alterable item to play with.
BTW, these projects were so easy to make. It took me less than an hour to alter them. While hubby was catching up on a Heroes episode online, I was making these. Now that's what I call good quality time. We were together and doing things we LOVE to do. LOL. Just kidding!
Till next time,
