Trash? I think not.


I LOVE my trash bags. Yep. I buy myself a box, and I don't share them with my husband for his regular to-do chore around the house. Why, you ask? Because trash bags are most definitely not just for gathering the garbage! You can make layout backgrounds like this one....


or this one...


or create beautiful shimmery effects in patterns like this...


by using this VERY simple technique!



I hope you have enjoyed this and will put your garbage bags to good use... I mean, really.... :)

Wonderful Heidi. I have used cling wrap and mists to get the similar patterned backgrounds, but this larger surface area would work so much better for full 12 x 12 sheets!

Cling wrap is a GREAT idea, Lydell!
