Before we finish up the Aisle 3 Makeover Series with our Yudu critique, here are just a couple more things I wanted to show you:

Shopping bags made from a roll of clearance wrapping paper and a sewing machine.
{i kinda liked the threads on the corners, so I left them}


new product labels that included a brief description of the item
{how it was made, what it was made from, etc}
 
The desciption on the product labels came in so handy this weekend since we were located right next to the live performances stage.  The labels were able to speak for us during those times when the music was too loud to have an in depth convo. 
{We had prime seats though, let me tell ya!  We rocked, we jazzed, we learned how to do african dances, hoola hoop, belly dance, do karate, hip hop, cheer lead.  Oh..! ...and we saw a guy lay on a bed of nails while another guy sledge-hammered two peices of concrete on his stomach.  Yikes!}
There was so much to the makeover that I'm pretty sure I'm forgetting something. I had a lot of favorite's, like the Upcycle Your Life sign made with vintage spools and old pattern envelopes.

What did you like the best?
