While I was in Wagga over Easter I raided my Grandmother's book shelf. I was after an old atlas, she had a beautiful old one with no cover and it was falling apart at the seams. I was hoping it wasn't too sentimental as I wanted to chop it up. The fact that it was in bad condition made it a lot easier to cut up. I love the deep green and orange colours it had. Most atlases I had seen were soft blues and brown and that wouldn't suit the boy's room.
I made paper bunting which I had seen and loved over here. Kelly Doust has some gorgeous paper made things on her blog.
