Little One and I were watching a new programme on kid's television last week called "Totally Rubbish". Right up our street. All sorts of crafting, and upcycling. A paper artist called Su Blackwell was featured, making a little scene out of old phonebooks. Some of her work, much of which is inspired by fairytales, is really amazing. I have possibly misnamed this post, as I should have called in Little House in the Big Wood.
So when a new yellow pages popped through our door, Little One thought she would have a go this afternoon, at making something with the old one. I was summoned with my knitting needles to help make some of the little tubes. (I got a bit grumpy about the risk of glue on knitting.) I have been working on a new knitting pattern all week, but it is still not ready to go. Can you see the complete concentration on her face?
So while she was constructing I thought I would have a little go at making a paper daffodil. I have left it in with the others in the vase, and will see if any of my family notice.
We have not really done much paper craft, but it was really fun. Very cheap afternoon's entertainment too.
