Something else to save...
I have a tendency to save all sorts of "useless" things because I think I can do something crafty with them. Some may be a little odd and some others seem fairly obvious. I have stacks of jars, lids from frozen juice...(OK - I guess I am a bit of a hoarder!).
When I was packing my suitcase to go to my Dad's, I came across a stash of clothing tags in my closet. Some tags have interesting designs and would be easy to alter and adapt to use in creative projects.
At some point in the past few years, Talbot's switched over to this style of fastener for their tags and I have accumulated a little pile of them. If you don't mind slitting the sewn in tag on the garment you can keep both ends of the string intact. That letter "T" is just crying out to be used on a Thank you card!
I don't remember what this tag came on (or even if it was male of female clothing) but the silky string and textured heavy cardstock will be easy to add to a mini album. A strip of paper down the center will cover the letters.
These tags came on shirts that I found recently at Costco. The lower part could be cut off and the corners re-rounded and the circle at the top would be easily covered by a reinforcement circle (plain, colored or one of the Tim Holtz patterned ones).
Do you collect odd bits and pieces like this? (Please tell me I'm not totally crazy!) Anyone want to guess how long it will take me to actually use these(!)
It is great to get the chance to visit with my Dad - I'll be here for a few days. He is doing a little better but needs to build up his strength and improve his walking to be able to go back to his regular apartment. Thanks again for your positive thoughts and prayers.
If you are on the email feed - there should be two posts in this email. I didn't set the time correctly on yesterday's post and only realized it late last night when I got back to my sister's house.
There were two new Cricut cartridges announced for Hello Thursday - the official announcement came so late that I'll just post my thoughts about them on Saturday...
