I have a huge amount of plastic bags from the local grocery stores and this is because I always seem to forget to take my canvas bags to the store with me. I can't justify throwing them away, so I decided to start making things out of them. The first thing I made was some flowers. I was totally excited with how they turned out and at this time it would take me too long to do a video on how to make them, so when I get better I will do my best to put something together for everyone to see. I did make extras to sell in my Etsy, by the way ;)! The first set I made for this layout of my daughter Rylee.
For these butterflies I used canvas and die cut the shapes. Then I just inked them with different colors of alcohol ink and used Stickles for the body. They have a neat grungy look.
So here is my large 4 inch plastic bag flower that I made. I dyed this one with reds and browns. You can also get a good close up look of the molding paste that I peppered with black sparkles.
Here is my smaller 2 1/2 inch matching flower. The three little stitches are done using black wire. This layout was used with items left over from my May Swirlydoos kit.
This is a pic of one of my sets at my Etsy right now. There is a 4 inch and a 2 1/2 inch flower in each set.
Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!
