And the winner is....

So, today I will anounce the winner of my give away! Scroll down if you want to read more about it. I thought it would be nice to show you part of the process of making these mobiles.
Here are some pics:

A big pile of plastic bags, I collect them by asking coworkers, family, friends to not throw them away. Even though I refuse plastic bags in stores myself, it's not a problem at all to get plastic bags. Did you know between 500 billion and a trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide each year? That's quite a lot of mobiles ;)

This is the result of fusing and cutting the bags.

These branches all fell from trees nearby our house. We are so fortunate to live near a forest.

Now back to the winner of the give away. How many plastic bags did I use? You might be surprised to hear that I used 14 different plastic bags to make this lovely mobile.
This means that Matchstickgirl has won! Congrats, Frances! You will find a mobile like this one: 

in your mailbox soon. And thanks to everyone who entered. I thought this was so much fun!
