They are so small and pretty and easy to pick up here and there when sensibly priced and they don't take up too much room either. I bought quite a few in the US in their supermarkets as they were very inexpensive. A few more I've bought here in Wilko and work out at less than £1 per roll. Anyway, I haven't really been putting them to good use so I scoured Pinterest the other day and saw a couple of small projects that really appealed and I decided to have a go at them.
The first one inspired this card for a niece to congratulate her on passing her driving test. The card itself was a notecard that I added the washi bunting to, to make it look a bit more special. I hope she likes it.
The second mini project was to decorate these very ordinary tea lights and make them look a little special and co-ordinate with the décor in different rooms. They almost look too pretty to light now.
I also completed the jar of doggy treats inspired by a free hand out from Hobbycraft. I used a jar I bought from Ikea for £1.25 and filled it with some of her favourite biscuits. I decorated it with some Christmas ribbon and made the tag from some pretty card I had in the craft box. I'll probably stick a bow on the top nearer the time and that's one present sorted, that has cost very little. At least I know she will eat these treats, which isn't always the case with shop bought gifts and stockings, so they won't get wasted.
