My other partner in the atp swap said she really loved ephemera so I kind of thought i could make a kanzashi brooch out of ephemera.

***I had this idea originally, and if it has been done before, I was not aware.

Anyway, the papers i used were bits of: a map, a chinese physics text book, a 1930's magazine of love stories, origami paper, a hell bank note and some handmade paper.  all of these papers were received by me in swaps.

here it is, i thought it turned out pretty good.  let me know what you think.   Smiley

Thanks guys!!  If a few more people say they are interested I could possibly write a tutorial (although I've never written one before) but it will probably be a while before I can mak one as I'm very busy at the moment.

Thank you for the comments though.
