Message with example !

Its a gift tag ..what has it to do with the title ? take another look ...

take a closer look at the flowers (pom-poms)

Now you got the green message Lets move to example ..
Before that take a closer look at the flowers (pom-poms)

Do they look like tissue paper pom poms ? Ok Ok..enough of beating around the bush .The flowers leaves and swirls too are made out of polythene bags ! The tag involves 100% recycling.Lets see what items were recycled.

Price tag , polythene bags and  pom-poms before coloring

I covered this price tag with white tissue to get some texture.Made pom-poms by technique used for making tissue paper pom-poms and then colored thier edges with red sketch-pen.I made leaves using white polythene earlier and colored it green .They did not look much nice, luckily I found green bag and made leaves out of it.Making swirls was tricky ,but managed some how.Finally added some pearls.I had this idea of plastic pom-poms and wanted a message to go with the theme of recycling.So came out with

                      "Reuse and Reduce plastic make 2013 fantastic ! "
