The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 255 - Paper string of pretty.

Well summer doesn't officially begin for another 2 days but we are heading for a 40 degree (google tells me that's 104 degrees for the Celsius challenged) day here today and it's already very hot at 11am. I shall be lying low for the day.

I got a head start last night on cutting out the pieces for today's craft. I loved my decorations from yesterday so much I decided to make some others.

I still had one book page left from the meg and mog book used in Day-230-meg-and-mog-love , and I love the colours of the illustrations. So began an idea. I combined this with a coffee bag and some shape cut outs left over from a birthday party pack.

I cut circles from the book page and stars from the coffee packet.

Used a long straight stitch on my sewing machine to sew them all together. (You could glue if you don't sew).

And here is my string of pretty.
 I would hang it on the tree but we don't have one yet, so here it is.

I think these would also look great hanging from the roof.


  1. Those stars from the coffee packet look cool! What a great way to upcycle =)

  2. What a beautiful idea. I am going to do the same for my son's birthday party on next Saturday. Thank you for all the ideas you always share with us! Have a wonderful day (here it is midnight and I am going to sleep!)

  3. Thanks Virna, they'll look lovely for your son's birthday.
