paper roses, paper roses


actually, paper boxes. same idea.

i got this idea from my friend tara who made a convenient magazine holder from a cereal box and some cute paper,

this is my prototype.


similarly, i filled this delightful shelf with more cute paper in those tiny, clear frames.



finally, i made a box to hold all of our wii accessories,


isn't this paper beautiful? mrs r gave it to me.

nothing really beats pretty paper.



except maybe a baby who has just attempted to eat barley cereal.

  1. Oh my. I love pretty paper and my husband LOVES it when I take obscene amounts of time in the stationary store. Totally loves it (but not really).

    Keep being creative! Love it.

  2. Sweet! I do the same every once in a while to redecorate when I'm a bit low on funds. =)

  3. Nothing beats a baby trying to eat barley cereal. That is so cute.

    I also love pretty paper, I have amassed boxes and boxes of them. Great prototype of a magazine holder!

  7. Yup, I think "baby with barley cereal" is way cuter than the beautiful paper (wink).

  15. That was a very sweet comment you left on my blog, thanks darling. I would have liked that as well, although I never paint my toe nails.. I think it's hard. But I do like crepes. And about the book, I wish I could do something like that. Thank you again, for the encouragement :)

  16. That cereal box idea is brilliant! And so much prettier than what you can buy from Ikea. Might be my next craft project...
