Flower Garland Made from Catalogs

On a whim I decided to make something for the Singer/Craft Upcyclist Party Contest. However, I'm pretty sure I have no chance of winning, something sewn is strongly recommended. No sewing was involved in this project. Which begs the question, why did I enter it in the first place? I guess it just sounded like a fun challenge and gave me a good excuse to craft something. Anyhow, if you haven't heard about the contest you should check it out. The deadline is November 14th.

I'll probably post directions for the flower garland next week if people are interested. Just let me know in the comments.


Have a great weekend!

These look very interesting. I gravitate to any kind of paper craft and would enjoy reading a tutorial on this technique.
