Two Rainbow Paper Projects

Michele Pacey at Michele Made Me posted these gorgeous junk mail paper snowflakes last year:
Both images from the Michele Made Me blog (top image; bottom image). Please have a look; she has plenty more pictures in her blog. Michele’s projects always get my gears running, and these photos have stayed with me for a year, that’s how much I like them!
The rainbow color scheme reminds me of a project I did, but I don’t think I’ve shared. Last year I tried making something with paper strips, but didn’t succeed. I still had a lot of extra strips…
…so I made paper chains for the tree:
I had to slip in a tea reference when I found the perfect ad to cut up:
Not bad considering it’s all junk mail and old magazines, don’t you think? I also made a few chains with some origami paper I had kicking around, but I like these more.
Here’s a picture with our tree topper:
When it was time for Mr. E and me to decorate our first tree together, we talked about what to top the tree with. My family (like most Finnish families I know) used a star, and Mr. E’s family (like most American families I know) had an angel, so we compromised and used a bow. The bow is made of a piece I got in a huge bag of ribbon remnants, and it’s white because that’s what there was. We both like it a lot, though, and continue to use it.
