I like to push myself to find crafty projects that use paper in fun and different ways, because then I start thinking about how to use paper in fun and different ways. This is one of those projects that got the wheels turning. The Craftzine.com blog is good for that.
Jenny Ryan created this project to be “a fun and inexpensive way to decorate gifts.” It definitely is, but using the right papers and doing more than one could also translate into a fun home decor project. I thought about one on a decorative box . . . a few on a canvas. Check out the project here for supplies and a tutorial. I hope it gets your juices flowing like it did mine.
