Books Mags or Brochures challenge

I had to think a lot about this for sure as the crafty bit of my brain seems to have been left behind in Skegness and the sunshine.

I used this brochure

and made a little woven basket--something my gran taught me to make from newspaper about 60 years ago. I put in a piece of very old tissue paper and made some flowers from book pages. Not sure it would have passed my gran's critical eye but my fingers aren't as nimble these days as they were years ago.

  7. I remember those now, what a lovely idea and I guess we could do that with stamping images on pieces of paper. Mmm now where have you got my mind wandering off to.
