Weekend DIY Project

>> Saturday, August 22, 2009

If I had a little telephone nook (like Allegra does, as do many of the fabulous old Victorian's in SF), I would be doing this project today!  Allegra, can I come do this for you next weekend? I mean, you can't get much better than that Paper Source paper, right?


This project was found at heart handmade and created by the fabulous SF gal Kelly Wilkinson of Make Grow Gather.

All you need is…

1. Scrap cardboard
2. Craft knife
3. Decorative paper
4. Tape
Measure the back wall of your recessed area, cut a piece of cardboard just a sliver thinner than the actual size, and wrap with decorative paper. Insert, and add flowers alongside other personal objects for a rotating corner of happy!
