Would You Have Bought This?

Filed under: Whatzit — Laura R @ 12:15 PM

Just a quick post to get your input and ideas.

The first item is a bag of scraps. I considered it a charitable contribution.

All odd shapes and sizes,  none of them large.

I should not have overlapped them so you could see how random and very small they are.  That is 3 red pieces.
  Use your imagination and tell me how you would use them.

How about these?

They are about six inches tall.  Any good ideas?

Linking up to Would You Buy This Wednesday and What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

  1. I keep telling you, I am not allowed to buy anything! NADA! ZILCH!

    And I have no sense of creatifity when it comes to crafts, so I am no help there, either!

    Happy, Waggin’ Tails, FUREVER!

  2. I’d personalise the butterflies in an artsy way then send them to Houston butterfly programme which is collecting 1.5 million butterflies to represent every child lost in the holocaust, in an art project for next year.

    One of my art groups is participating so if you need any info contact me.

  5. Hmmm, I’m stumped about the first bag. The butterflies – could you put magnets on the back? Make them a part of a mobile? Hang them on a porch?

    Thanks for linking up to my party 🙂

  6. I love the little red frog pieces. Maybe turn into cute pin cushions? It’s hard to tell the size of them. The butterflies are cool….those I might have bought. Hang them like a mobile! pretty.

  8. O good asking me, I’m hopeless at it. The butterflies look big…bling em up a bit for sure…and then stick em on flowerpots.

  9. The material pieces would have defeated me, but my grandaughters would love the butterflies. I look forward with great interest to see what you create with your stasch.

  10. Fabric scraps….I have tons, sometimes I cut them into little squares and fray the edges to use in my scrapbooks.
    The butterfly’s would probably end up on a curtain?
    Keep smiling and creating

  11. I would add the butterflies to painted skewers and stick them in a house plant.

    Thanks for joining us on Thrifty Thursday I am your newest follower.

  12. Well, I think I’m with Jen. I would put them on a skewer and add them to a house plant or planter outside. They are beautiful though. The rest I think you will have to google your way around that creativity. I’m sure you’ll come up with something. Remember…..nothing ventured, nothing gained. The risk takers are the ones who score huge every now and then. Good for you for going for it. When you do use your newly purchased treasures I hope you share them with us all. Have fun creating!!!!!
