Cut them into equal length pieces and glue them sideways around a picture frame. I made a 20x24 bamboo frame like this for the bathroom.

Yes, Goo Be Gone rocks! Found at your local grocery or mega store near furniture polish and window cleaners. Good for removig sticker leftovers from windows/mirrors.

I use old comic and children's books pages to make upcycled envelopes. Get an envelope that fits that page, carefullytear it open, trace, cut, glue the sides and voila! Just make sure to tear the pages out neatly. Then you can use the hard covers for a new journal/notebook. I also like the idea of scanning the pages and printing the paper to make multiples.

I've lived here for 3 years now and haven't found thrift or vintage with the likes of my motherland in CA. I usually hit up Hobby Lobby or my favorite 3 story antique store downtown on the corner of Broadway and Houston I think it is.

Some other BIG places to go are the Goodwill on Fredericksburg Rd down about 3 blocks from Crossroads mall towards downtown. They always have good furniture finds and a hig selection of books good for scrapbooking or making cool hardcover notebooks.

There's another giant Texas Thrift at the exit before Ingram off 410. You can see it from the fwy on the right and there's another giant thrift store right next to it.

I know it's not a crafty place, but I spend a lot of cash at Garden Ridge. I'm lucky enough to live 3 miles from the giant one off 35 North, but there's another smaller store if you go towards the TX Thrift exit Ingram and take the turnaround. They have small furniture, party supplies, silk flowers, holiday dec and I always find broken statues or sets missing a piece that I can fix up, paint or sand down to make something awesome.

I'm always up for making new crafty friends who can teach me a thing or two.  Cheesy
