Tuesday is Recycle, reuse or revive

And because I'm feeling tired and I have written well over 2000 words today I'm going to make it Quick and simple.

If you are like me you have a container that is full of bits of lace & ribbon. Today I am going to give you a list of ideas to help you use up a few.

1) Depending on your craft of choice a bit of ribbon or lace either sewed on or glued can give an otherwise boring note card, scrapbook page, collage or ATC an extra bit of pizazz
2) Give your clothes a fresh look by sewing lace to your pockets, cuffs, collar or hemline
3) Add beads and a snap to ribbon or lace and you will have a pretty choker or wristlet
4)If the lace or ribbon is wide enough it can be made into a pocket to hold things like a personalized advent calendar
5) Use it as a stencil, this is a fun thing to do with lace, paint over the lace to make a stencil then use the actual ribbon as an accent piece
