Well this is one of those goofy little things, but I'm going to go ahead and share it. I've had some nice messages this week from people who say they appreciate zero money creative ideas and this is one of those : )
Awhile back my daughter gave me a pack of lovely tissues. You know, the little packs of kleenex that you can tuck in your purse.
They were just so pretty, it was hard for me accept that I couldn't make some other use of them!
I decided I'd open one up and scan it into my computer so I would at least have the pretty design saved. Yes, you can see the fold lines on the printed copies, but that doesn't bother me.
On a birthday occasion, I needed to wrap a small gift and didn't have any appropriate gift wrap. I printed the scanned tissue and used it to wrap the little box, and it was so cute!
Then I decided to paint and decoupage some small wooden bowls I've had for ages.
I simply cut out a couple of the flowers and used Mod Podge to add them to the bowls.
We are going to spend some time each day, the week leading up to Valentine's Day, writing something we love or appreciate about each family member on the hearts-even if we can only come up with one word for that day! :)
I'll show you soon what we'll do with them after that.
And that's it! Scanning a kleenex? Yeah, it's a little goofy but it's given me lots of inspiration for little projects that don't cost any money, and I guess that was the point.
Happy creating, everyone!
