I am very impressed with one of my readers Charlene, not only does she make jewelry out of her paper beads she thought up of a way to make hang tags from coffee bags, what a nice touch! I like the recycle logo idea with words and beads inside the transparent tag, if I were the recipient I will be thrilled. Hmmm…an idea for a swap, what do you think?
In Charlene’s own words “……….here are my pics. Just scrap magazine paper rolled up!!
now the tag is made from a coffee bag (back side) front side is just some clear??? scrape
stitch together to make a little “tea bag” with little words, beads, and the recycle logo from a can. Think of it as a tag with a window! Also the necklace is going to be packaged in a ice cream jar. I thought I would keep with the recycling theme.”
The nice thing about it is you can reuse the tag and whoever you are giving it to can do the same thing. It is made out of sturdy material that can withstand mail and handling.
I love the olive shaped paper beads as well, it is pretty in it’s “randomness”
I have to make some, just in time for gift-giving.
