Recently I've finished two little paper projects  Grin
First one is covering an old tea box. I covered this box with scrapbooking papers I found here ( http://summertimedesigns.blogspot.com/2009/03/sweet-springtime-kit.html ). I loved the paper and the little bird, especially. It was an easy, untiring job but the result was very satisfying Smiley I think I will never drop such boxes again! It looks very stylish and decorative with these scrapbooking papers.



The second project was very enjoyable and satisfying, too. I made a frame for a photo of me and my family out of old magazines. I found Rolled Magazine Project here ( http://www.homemadesimple.com/en_US/homemavens.do?contentId=sep08 ) and what I can say about rolling plus these info is that it is important to create similar rolls. You can do this with the help of a pencil. And don't roll from the edges, roll from the corners so that they will be very colorful.





Thanks for looking  Grin

Both projects are very cute!  Sometimes it's fun to do something simple and straightforward.  Well, OK, for me, it's always good to do something simple and straightforward.

You did an excellent job.  Love the bird.

zcrafter, you're very right! Smiley No matter how much I like to see the result of a new project, I don't have the patience. That's why I enjoy tiny and tireless crafts Smiley

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.

Very nice projects.  I really like the frame.   Quick projects are definitely sometimes the best.  Good job.
