The designer calls it my “tinkering,” which makes me think I’m a nutty professor working in my workshop…maybe I am, but I love making things out of my favorite magazines! Once I’ve poured over them a few times and torn out future ideas, I save them for projects…mostly gift wrapping.
Pictured above are some of my favorite wrapping adventures. Yesterday I was wrapping a birthday gift for a niece, and mid-wrap, the idea for a purse erupted. Next time I think I’ll make the purse and put the gift inside so that the recipient can reuse the purse. It also got me excited about all the fun things I can make with and for my kiddos out of old catalogues and magazines. As I created yesterday, the builder & dancer were busy making their own creations with paper & glue. Oh the fun we have to look forward to, creating together…as soon as they refine those scissor skills! 🙂
