Recycled newspaper and a pretty treasury
It's amazing what people come up with! I wanted to make another treasury today and wasn't too sure what to base it on so I just picked two colors black and yellow to begin with and then tried finding some other items in a color scheme close to the ones I had picked. I always like the look of old newspaper so I tried that and voila ... it worked.
When we lived in Alice Springs, Australia my daughter made a purse by weaving pages of used magazines together using a nifty craft tool specifically designed for doing so. The tool was for weaving and glueing the strips together she actually made the little purse which is so cool. The handle is actually braided and the sides of the purse are coils of paper. I think she did a fantastic job! She was only 10 at the time.
Here is the treasury I made today with items made out of recycled newspaper mixed in with yellow and black items.
