Upcycled Linky Party {4}

Welcome back to our Upcycled Linky Party - weekly party #4.  Before we dive in, let's take a look at a few highlights from last week.

The Wooden Bee showed us how to turn a few ordinary thumb tacks into extraordinary thumb tacks with a bit of wine cork.  Be sure to swing by her blog to see how you can make a set of your own:

Whether you're the creative type who exhibits their work at art and craft fairs and need a fabulous way to send purchases home with your customers or you're looking for a unique way to present a birthday gift, look no further than this. I've taken a few items from the recycle bin; newspaper, cereal box and some T-shirt yarn to create this fun and colorful gift bag.  Be sure to check out the tutorial.

And just in case you need a little more cork in your life (along with a few bottle caps), this week's shop feature comes to us from Our Children's Earth.  These Friendly Snakes are the cutest, don't you think?

Now on to Linky Party #4?  Here's the run down on the rules:

1.  Feel free to link up no more than one upcycled tutorial that you created and one upcycled item from your shop each week.
2.  Please don't link up the same items or blog posts as in previous weeks, let's keep it fresh.
3.  Follow Love 2 Upcycle by email or Google connect.
4.  This is a party so socialize!  Visit at least one shared link and leave a meaningful comment or "favorite" it if it is an Etsy shop item.  It would be nice if you followed them as well, but it is not required.
5.  Please keep it family friendly and upcycled!  We reserve the right to remove any links that aren't appropriate.

Now, show us what ya got:
