Well, several actually.
Well, a bit more than several.
Frivolous? Yes. Wasteful of the paper I should be using to pack? Definitely. Bloody stupendous fun? That too.
It started out with a single triangle of paper last night. And then I noticed the reject magazines from my last attempt at recycling paper into something clever (a woven basket, of which there are no pictures, for fear of future blackmail).
What else could I do? I fell victim to circumstances and temptations and fate itself. Which might be a bit dramatic when you’re referring to magazine scraps. But I don’t think so.
They are honestly so simple it is shocking. I was inspired by this tutorial from Creative Jewish Mom, though when the time came to make them myself I modified a great deal based on a) my inability to access a computer and bad memory for directions, b) my lack of white glue, and the availability of a glue stick, and c) my superfluity of chopsticks, and the MIA status of my paintbrushes.
I’ve yet to seal them, and at first I was worried that these would join the ranks of many other projects I quit on after I’ve passed the more enjoyable, creative stage. But they are so incredibly fun to make, one has to assume that they would be fun to wear.
Not that the packing tape is paying any attention.
