Popcorn!

I had an order in from Lush (the makers of the most lucious bath products) and instead of the normal void fill packaging they used popcorn! What a fantastic idea! I always use environmentally friendly void fill but this really is the ultimate! Not sure how cost friendly it is though and I had noticed that the actual product prices had increased quite dramatically since my last order, so this is obviously where they recoup the costs, but certainly to be applauded in terms of "making a difference".

Moving swiftly from popcorn to Daring Card Makers. There's a little mini challenge there so I decided to have a go. This was the challenge:

The ingredients you need to use on your cards are:
4 brads/eyelets
3 circles
2 rectangles
and lashings of ribbon!

Oh crap! Just seen it says 4 brads/eyelets, I only used 3. Oh well, I made up for it by using 4 circles instead of three. ;o)
