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!

Frances did it again, she is so good in guessing!! Congrats Frances!
Great way to recycle!
Here plastic bags are alot but instead of buying garbage bags we use them as garbage bags so they get another use.
