Just a really quick post today.
At http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/page/tutorial-time-on-speedy-tv-challenge-84 the challenge tutorial was to learn how to make "oriental lanterns." An easy-peasy project right? Wrong....I once had a paper crimper. I bought it many years ago. And it sat on a shelf for many years after that. Collecting dust, being move from the shelf to the drawer, then into a box, then back up on a shelf. Until one day when I was doing some reorganization, I said to myself "it's trash, I never even use it, not even occassionally." So, into the trash it went. Never regretted tossing it....until now. LOL
And so I "made do." I used my MS scoring board to make score marks; which I then folded back and forth into mountain/valley folds. I added a couple of strips of paper to the top and bottom; stretched them somewhat and then adhered them to my page. Not the best looking oriental lanterns, but I think that they're "recognizable."
