Easter Eggs!

Every year I have to make at least one type of easter egg.  This year, I sheet musiced some!

I recently acquired a paper shredder for $2.00 at an auction.  Okay, now most people would think to themselves... "Yeah, now I have a paper shredder I can shred all those important documents with personal information on them."  Me... guess what I thought? "Yeah!!!  Now I can shred up sheet music for crafts!"

I nestled them in a little berry box that I painted back in February in anticipation of Easter.

And I dusted them with diamond dust for a little sparkle.

They started out looking more like this... all white and strofoamy.  I confess I actually had them out on display like that for over a week before I got around to prettying them up. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  16. It’s good that you chose to recycle paper and make beautiful crafts out of it. I imagine it would have taken you a long time to have a good amount of shredded paper if you did it manually. Also, recycling paper is a good way to help out in saving our natural resources.
