The Green Spot - How to Recycle/Repurpose Those Bread Ties!

Ever wonder what to do with all of these???:  Read on!...

Images 2 and 3 are the titles/headers I created on a 2-page layout documenting my infant son's journey into the world of eating solid foods.  I used baby yarn and miniature safety pins for the string "hanger" to attach the bread ties.

The remaining images 4 through 8 are close-ups of the individually decorated bread ties.  Some have letters, some stickers, etc.  You can cover them with paper, paint them, color them with sharpies, etc., to match your layouts. 
Another cute idea:  have a teacup with a string and the teabag "tag" dangling outside the cup.  The "tag" can be one of the smaller bread ties and you can customize it for a scrapbook layout, get well card, or even a tea party invitation.  There are hundreds of uses for these little gems, so start saving and repurposing those bread ties!  Have fun!
