One day, several months ago, I stumbled upon an interesting website that peaked my interest in many ways. It served to feed not only the creative side of me, but the thrifty, and waste not part of my being. All that, AND it made me giggle. I found humor in the fact that someone, like millions of over Netflix users, looked at those small red rectangles of paper that mindlessly gets ripped off the package, and thrown away, and actually thought......"what could I do with these things? What a waste!" I found intrigue in the process that person must have taken to come up with THAT something. I smile at the ingenious way that they didn't keep to themselves, but created a website. BRILLANT!
That very day, I dug through a small pile of junk mail envelopes and salvaged my Netflix flap. I sat my hiney down, and followed the instructions to make this fabulous shirt.
I have to admit that I felt pretty sassy about it. I took these photos, and intended on sharing them here on my blog ASAP, but something got in the way, and it was soon buried in my "to edit" files of photos. A few weeks later, I had gathered up several more flaps, and I proceeded to make the swan, crab, frog, and heart. Sugar Bear was by my side at the time. She was ecstatic about these creations, and insisted that we play with them for nearly an hour. They were a tad worse for the wear when we were finished, so I neglected to take photos. Darn it....they were cute, too.
I have no doubt that Sugar Bear and I'll make some again, as I have an unlimited supply of Netflix flaps coming into my house each month. Rock On!
Have a great weekend!
