Keeping it Simple — What to do with a Bubblet

In this issue of GreenCraft Magazine there is an article by a wonderfully creative mail artist named Lynn Radford. She does the most amazing thing with leftover plastic bubble packs and the article is just so fun.  Lynn really rocks trash….

So this particular trash multi bubblet came as packing material in something we received and I thought aha, I know exactly what to do with it.  Make a trash bubblet and mail it to Lynn.  My take is no where near as elegant and fancy as hers, but…I had some scrap book bits leftover from a garland I did a while ago so I cut them into confetti pieces and stuck them in the mini bubbles.  I then took part of my work paper on the desk covered with paint and stamps and used it to back the transparent bubblet.  I put a recycled cereal box on the back to stiffen it all up, taped it together and voila it’s on the way to good old PA and Lynn.  Hope she enjoys getting trash bubbles as much as she enjoys making them…

    That is so cool! At first glance I thought it was bubble wrap and could not understand how you got your confetti into the bubbles.)
    I love how you are making such fab art from trash!

    Perfect timing, Corrine! Just yesterday, I opened a refill for my Tombo glue runner and happily tossed it into the recycling container in my studio! This morning, after reading your post, I dug it back out! It is a small bubble, but just perfect for enclosing birthday money for my grandson’s card! Great idea! Thanks, too, for the link to Lynn’s blog!

    What a fabulous and totally unexpected surprise, Corrine! I always open my email before going anywhere else on the net… Your blog notification intrigued me. Bubblet? I thought. “What’s a Bubblet?” (I could even hear Ozzy Osbourne saying it as though he were once again asking, “What’s a Beiber?”) I clicked on over and was totally knocked off my feet! You were so kind to feature my article and blog in your post today. I cannot wait for my Bubblet to arrive! Of course, you know what this means? You’re going to end up being the feature of one of my blog posts! And I think a very special Thank You is in order as well. Have a beautiful day in the studio, my friend! Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
