Simple Centerpiece: Recycled Paper Bouquet Vase :: Green Your Decor You all probably already know from my sunburst mirror that I have an affinity for home decor made of recycled magazine pages. There’s something to be said about turning a material destined for the recycling bin into something beautiful that you’ll keep around for a long time to come. These paper bouquet vases are beautiful on their own, and even more so when single flowers are placed in the test tube bud vases dispersed throughout the vase. I think I’m going to get one of these for my desk. It will be a place to put a few freshly picked flowers to brighten up my work day and an homage to my days as a newspaper and magazine designer. Why It’s Green: Made of recycled magazine pages Price: $25

Felt Easter Bunnies par julieblanchette A Tutorial: Fabulous Ric Rac Flowers » Matilda Jane Clothing Rocks Let me start out with a warning or sorry of some sort. The warning is because I have never done a Tutorial before, so I hope this is helpful and easy to follow. The sorry is for how horrible my nails look.

Material: Time-Roughly 20 minutes about 28 inches of Ric Rac ( This will make a flower about 2 inches in diameter) Suggestion: The thicker the Ric Rac the better Felt (Any Color) One sheet will be fine depending on how many flowers you want to make. Optional: Hair Clips, leaves or buttons Step One: Take the two pieces and hot glue them together. Note: You want to glue them together as if they are a mirror of one another. Step two: Lock in each curve of the first piece with the second. Say to yourself “over,under,over, under”. *If your piece does not look like this, then you most likely glued the two pieces going the wrong direction. Pretty right? Cute right?
