CTO114: Dirty Deeds, Done Dirt Cheap! Use recycled items. I used a Brown Paper bag from our grocery store for my paper bag, A Piece of white cardboard from a clothing package to make my candle sturdy, tissue paper from a MFT box that came with my order, and a recycled piece of white floss (yarn). I think it was from an old sweater many years ago. It was in a little bag with a button.
I waited several hours yesterday for the new fan club galley to open and when I saw it was to use recycled products, I started to look around.
I wanted to make a matching gift bag to go with my card this morning but I didn't have any recycled tissue paper to match. So I went with a girly bag. After.... I remembered that Verve has a blueish color tissue paper..and it had specks of glitter in it as well... I should have looked longer...
WT462 Washi Tape.... My candle is covered in it.
Thanks for looking

Oh, my, Irene, this is darling! I love your "done cheap" bag of wishes that will delight a very special someone! Glad I saw this! I should remember to try these. I so enjoy the DD gallery and forget to look at the challenges that are behind their cards! Warm hugs, sweet friend!
