Plastic Bag Ribbon

Hello Everybody!

There is a challenge going on for another day or so at Cut It Up challenge.  It's challenge #9 Out with the old.  The challenge is to make a project using something from the house that you would not normally use in papercrafting.  Is that a recycle challenge?  Count me in!

**This card made the Top 3 Cut at Cut It Up! Thank you! :)

I am also linking up to the Catch the Bug Challenge: Anything Goes!

Now at Cut it Up you do have to-it's a must-use one thing-everybody has to use a die cut.  Which is a good thing because this means I get to use my Cricut.  So enough chit's my card:

The Earth is from the Travel cartridge from Cricut.  The ribbon is made from this plastic bag, an item not usually used in papercrafts.  I have been saving it because it's pink.  So I cut two strips and tied them together with a knot.  I wrapped it around the card and the two free ends made the bow.

Here is the inside of the card.  I used letters from a magazine for the sentiment.  Thank you so much for stopping by...until next time my friends...what are you going to use on your card?
