I Confess

I just couldn't decide what to do with the cute little canvas tote that comes in the September kit. I saved it 'til last, thinking that something would occur to me, that the lightbulb would come on, but it just never really did. That's kind of embarrassing to admit, but we all get blocks like this once in a while, don't we? Our mojo goes on hiatus? Takes a vacation and threatens to never return?? LOL well it feels like it sometimes!!! So, I did what any self-respecting scrapper would do....when all else fails, make a flower :)
First, I ripped all the seams from the bag, and removed the handles.

Next, I cut the bag into strips.

Then I chose my colors: Coffee Shop and Peach Delight Glimmer Mist.

After the strips had dried, I ran a needle and thread through one side of a canvas strip, pulled it tight, and secured the ends together.

Then I started pulling threads out, for a totally cool fringed effect....

....and finally, I chose my centers. I used some cork circles and a couple of buttons.

So I guess I figured something out with that cute little canvas tote after all. What will you do with yours?
Happy Scrapping :)
