I found this idea on Nona Davenport's blog http://nonapearl.blogspot.com/ this summer. She did a series on recycling objects for crafts. Nona used mass market books for her wreaths and hot glued them. I despise my hot glue gun so I used pearl pins...lots and lots of pins. I thought this was a great way to use up surplus paper. The idea is though the you make fortune tellers (like when we were kids) using 4x4 squares and pin them upside down to get the flower shape. It takes about 144 squares (12 sheets of b&t). So a huge shout out to Nona because I am in love with these...if they don't sell they will make great Christmas gifts!
and yes I had a lot of surplus b&t lol!
I have several canvas pieces completed...this one is my favorite.
and of course washer necklaces (which once I got them loaded on my gypsy so I didn't have to cut them by hand) were alot of fun!
