The idea is that you test your creativity & stop buying anything new until you've used up what you've already got. I did this when I found some buried tubs of wired beads back in the autumn. I loved the look of them, but had never thought of a suitable use.They came into their own when I started decorating letters for Christmas stock (see left).
Here are some other items featuring bits from my Stash Busting. I've got loads more to sort through & use up. It's fun trying & it saves you money. Happy Busting.
If any of you have a go yourselves, I'd love to see what you make.You can post them onto my FB page (Anne Rhynas), if you like.
