I made it out of an old journal and just some magazine strips and clippings. The front is just random strips woven together and taped on. The back is all perfume bottles. You could pick any theme: Rings, flowers, eyes...just random stuff. Whatever. I really like how it came out. I've already gotten requests from other people.


The front.

More close up.

Back.

Without the glare.

I love it!

Personal swaps would be awesome.
Random PMs are encouraged as well.

Nice! I like the paper-weaving idea.
Maybe it would also look nice if you used just shades of one colour to weave?  Smiley

Haha, yeah I thought about that.
But I was way too impatient to go through and find ads of all one color.

hey, cool!
I think a monochromatic theme would look really neat as well.
