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 311 - Bangle with 1970's magazine decopauge

I was browsing in an op shop the other day and happened to find some 1970's magazines that I couldn't resist. Some were from my birth year which I immediately bought, but then I returned to buy some others today.

I decided to make a bangle with some of the pretty floral prints from ad pages.

I have found some great articles too which I may share with you, but for now it is getting late, and my present for today (40 days of treats) is to watch a 1973 movie whilst eating 1970's snacks. :-)


  1. What a clever idea!! Why don't I ever think of things like that? Love the bracelet, good job...what did you use for a base to glue the paper on? Cardboard?

    That was a wonderful find, too. I love to find old magazines in thrift shops...I'm a sucker for them, lol.

    Joyce...who will now prove that she is NOT a robot...again!

    1. Lots of fun reading the magazines. Kniting patterns abound! I used an old wooden bangle from the op shop for my base Joyce. Cheating? :-)

  2. Nah, I don't think it's cheating at all. The whole point of making your bangle was the decorative part of it, using the magazine pages. And besides, you have to have a base to glue the pages on , no matter what it is!!!
