How Would You Handle This?

I am making a gift for a friend's birthday - using items on hand - 3 beads, and a length of wire. Would you could this as one item (the ring) or 4 items (beads & wire) when counting the items leaving the home?

I'd count it as one, but there's no hard and fast rule. It's one of the reasons I chose to acknowledge creative transformation in my personal rules of engagement.

Hi Kali, I would count it as two- some beads and the wire. My thinking is you would not have disposed of just one bead if you were disposing of beads in general. Congratulations on your creativity in giving away a gift to declutter! I am sure your friend will love being the beneficiary.

I'm with Taph on this one (not really suprising as we made our guidelines up together!) but if it's any help I had a similar counting dilema to you a week or so back: http://theshoppingsherpa.blogspot.com/2007/12/feeling-kinda-crafty.html
