It’s not as if there aren’t a million other things that I should be doing. I mean, we’re getting ready to rip out our entire kitchen in 3 days and what am I doing? I’m crafting.
A while back, I saw this cool piece of artwork on Etsy. (If you haven’t checked out Etsy, you must! It’s “your place to buy and sell all things handmade.”) So I saw this cool piece of artwork, a collage peace sign, and I thought “hey I could make that” so I stashed the idea away for a day when I had nothing better to do.
I had been saving old birthday cards for the project. Usually I’m like “save a tree–don’t send me a card” but for this project I was glad that nobody had ever listened. The first thing I did was use my little paper cutter to cut all of the cards into long strips.
And once it was all said and done (a couple of hours from start to finish) this is what I ended up with. I wish I could give credit to the original artist who came up with this idea, but I can no longer find it. So whoever you are thanks! And no worries–I won’t be selling these any time soon.
