Hi!  I found out about the Papercraft Challenge: "Chinese Menu" yesterday but decided not to do it....then I took out the recycling bin last night and saw these items in the bin:

The ad flyer was from Tampa and had great colors and a beautiful map!  And a paper bag from the Biltmore had great leaves and acorns on it.  I changed my mind about the challenge real quick  Wink I used a canvas I got for Christmas, some newspaper, sheet music, Mod Podge and some ink and this is what I came up with:

He's a little bird, the canvas is 5 inches square.  I thought he needed a sparkly rhinestone eye.  Cheesy

I used:
Newspaper -A
Sheet Music-B
Advertisement Flyer-B
Paper Bag- B
Thanks for checkin' him out!

That little bird is so sweet! I love that you made this out of stuff that was going to be thrown out. Well, recycled, but you know what I mean. Wink
