Have you tried any of these?  Would you try them?

#1. I love this idea for those of us that have trouble with our hands.

#9. I have actually done this. They work great. So this one gets my tick of approval.

#13 is one of my favourites. I buy shower caps all the time and have them in the kitchen draw ready to cover all those odd shaped containers.

#30 I will definitely be trying out on my desk. I have cords all over the place.

Share with me your discount store hacks and let me know how or where you found them. I would love to give them a go myself.

Then take approx 40cms of twine and double over. Thread the twine through the hole and then knot on the end. Repeat the process for the other side. Be sure to double knot the ends to avoid the handle coming out.

You now have a little gift bag.

I pop a sticker on mine, so that my customers know where they purchased the item from. Alternatively you could stamp them or decorate them with patterned paper to use for gifts.

Repurposed Stamp Block

Hi There

I completed this project a little while ago but I hadn’t put it on my blog, so I thought I would share it with you.
I was recently sorting my stamp collection and took all my stamps from my wood mounted blocks and turned them into cling back, so they can be used on acrylic blocks.
So I had these wood blocks left over and didn’t want to throw them out, but didn’t know what to do with them.
  I wanted to repurposed them in some way and this was the end result.
I cleaned the block to remove the sticky from it and then I covered the block in some travel themed washi tape, I then took some clock embellishments and glued them to the front of the block with glossy accents.
I then used some little glass bottles and stuck them to the top of the block, placed some photo pin holders into the cork tops and took a piece of printed paper with the word journey on it and rolled it up and placed inside the clear bottle, to give me a message in a bottle effect.


This has now been repurposed into a cute little photo holder.

Products used : Washi Tape
: Glossy Accents
: Glass Bottles
: Clock Embellishments
: Tim Holtz mini cogs.

DIY – Baby Shower with Lolly Buffet

Welcome

I thought I would share with you all my sister’s Baby Shower that my daughter threw for her last October 2013.

My daughter asked if I would like to help her with the decorations.
I was more than happy to give her a hand.
She wanted to create something special as my sister was having a girl (her first).
She had waited a long time for her.
Crystal wanted to have a lolly buffet as a feature of the shower. So we went in search of some prices & companies to see if it could be achieved. Unfortunately the budget wasn’t going to stretch that far, so we decided, it can’t be that hard…lets do our own!!
So off we went to find the items needed to accomplish this.
I searched thrift stores, discount stores & our home to find the items needed.
We went to a warehouse called FAL to buy all the sweets to fill the jars.
Buying in bulk cuts the cost down.
This jar was a vase that we used to hold our Baby Teeth.
These were Cadbury Chocolate Bars that I covered in foil and decorative scrapbooking paper.
Wrapped with ribbon, Die cut scallop circle and sentiment.
 This gorgeous mirror I found in Thingz. It was part of collection they had on display. It really suited our theme.
Crystal found these little milk bottles at a discount store.
She talked to the owner and ordered them in and as she wanted quite a few, they were able to give her a discount.
This was the final setup on the day. Lots of pink…my sister doesn’t do pink!!
We found as many pink/red/white lollies to go with the theme.
These sweet jars were found at discount stores.
The ‘It’s a Girl’ plaque was from Thingz.
This was the end result.
BEAUTIFUL.
I also wanted to have something my sister could take away from the day as a memento of her baby shower. This is a memory tree. I repurposed an item that I borrowed from Made with Memories and decorated it accordingly. I used Kaiser flowers and some ribbon to decorate the stems of the tree. I found some cute little pink pegs to attach the photo’s with. I used my little instamax camera and then had the guests leave a message on their photo for Mum.
My daughter repurposed this large Baby bottle (it came with tiny baby bottle treats) and decided to used it for Baby’s First Shoe Fund….a girl needs her shoes right??
The end result was well worth
the time and money to DIY and the satisfaction that you did it.
The compliments from guests made it all worth while.
The look on my sister’s face when she seen the end result was priceless.
A job well done Crystal!!
