It was a lovely holiday and I spent the morning tidying up. Every year, all that beautiful trash inspires me to make something. This is what I did with the afternoon, the crumpled paper and other bits from the wrappings.
Trace a jar onto a box. And then a smaller jar for the center.
Cut it out.
Pad it with rumpled paper and masking tape.
Wrap it with leftover ribbon from a gift.
Add more textiles or ribbons.
Gather up some pretty trims and decorate the top.
So much more fun than putting everything away or throwing it all out. One more ornament for the tree, a window or a cupboard latch.
