Good morning, my twistedly wonderful beauties! I hope everyone had a rockin' and kick ass weekend full of much fun, laughs, and debauchery. I, unfortunately, did not have a party-hearty weekend. Instead, I've been just pluckin' away working on some more creative goodies for everyone. More on that later.
Today, I get to FINALLY share with you the best idea for a mini I've had in a long time. We all love to be savvy, thrifty, and innovative. Well, do I have the project for you! I recycled some parts of some old jeans that were just too worn out to donate.
Denim has become a big trend in the creative arts industry. We've seen flowers, trims, and other embellishments made from denim. We've even seen the pockets from jeans used on scrapbook pages. But have you ever seen the back pockets used as mini album? No??!! Well, you can now scratch that off of your bucket list!
After I had cut apart my jeans, I was actually going to throw these away! About 3.7 seconds later, I came to my senses and started cutting the pockets off. When I went to pick up my stack of pockets, I had my epiphany! I was looking at my next mini.
I honestly could NOT believe how easy it was to put this little baddy together. The denim truly does all of the work for you. SIGN ME UP!
I hope you feel inspired, to reduce, reuse, recycle, and create something FABULOUS! Please, puh-lease, upload your wonderful "upcycled" projects to our Flickr Group. I am ALWAYS checking out our group for new projects to love on and to get inspired by!
