I was really excited when I was invited to guest post at The CSI Project this month, and even more excited when I saw the theme of recycled crafting this week.  Recycled crafting is one of my favorite genres to play with!  For my project, I decided it was a good opportunity to use up something I have in mass quantity:  coffee bags!  I love coffee almost as much as I love crafts, so I have no shortage of them in a wide assortment of colors.  Would you ever guess that they are what I used to make this flower bib necklace?  I’m so happy with how it turned out!  Head over to The CSI Project to see how I made it!   [how to make a recycled coffee bag flower necklace]
