Not look-at-the-macaroni-necklace-I-made-in-girl-scouts kind of crafty but rather Martha Stewart should be worried kind of crafty.
Yep. I said it.
Recently, my sweet Judd gave me a random bag of prizes from Target & I immediately saw projects in my future!
The first one being to use these bright, cheery napkins.
The J could be for Judd/Jennie! :)
I found this wooded tissue box at my favorite bargain store Salvation Army! It even had a base coat of white paint on it already!
The price was a whopping...
50 cents! Sold baby!
So I separated the napkins (they were 2-ply) and cut very messily around the designs. Then I glued them down in a cute pattern.
Why not just glue the napkin 'as is' on the sides? Because it didn't fit correctly, leaving a border of nothingness around the sides which my OCD deemed unacceptable.
I didn't even bother using fancy Mod Podge. Plain old Elmer's works just fine for the super thin tissue paper.
I tried to leave the paper somewhat crinkled so it would have texture but it flattened out a good bit when I put the top layer of glue on.
This is as far as I've gotten because life, being ever abundant, has paused my craftiness.
More to come...
