Hello crafty friends!
Recently there was a contest on the Glue Arts blog, it was to recycle, reuse and repurpose some items into a project. I would like to share my submission with you today. I didn't win the contest, but I had a great time making my projects. I had to use Glue Arts products in my submission, but keep in mind that you can use which ever products you like. To be honest, I wouldn't use the Glue Glider Max again. I borrowed it from a friend (thanks Jen T!) for this project and I found it very difficult to use. I would use my ATG Gun in the future.

These are the supplies I used for the 2 projects I am showing. Any type of embellishment may be used. These just happened to be what I had on hand.
These are the two projects I made. They can be used for many different purposes. When my daughter was young I made one of these as a “locker pocket” and put magnets on the back so she could put it inside her locker door at school. She kept small things like pencils, pens, erasers etc. in it. The one with the strap can be used as a little purse, or it can be hung on a door, like in the picture to put notes into it for your child. Hang it on your child's bedroom door and leave little love notes in it, or maybe hang it somewhere it is sure to be seen and use it for outgoing mail. Keep the extra keys in it, or extra change, or maybe you sunglasses, so you know where they are. The one with out the handle can be used to put a small gift in as a gift bag, put magnets on it to go onto the fridge to hold coupons, or take out menus. There are a lot of uses for these adorable pockets.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed these projects and tutorial. If you would like to leave a comment that would be great, if you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments section or e-mail me (address is in right column) and I will get back to you asap.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
