i've been a little obsessed with these folded creations lately. with the christmas decorations put away, the house was feeling a bit bare. i rarely spend money on home decor. i really like to repurpose what i have on hand. while i was folding laundry in my cellar one day, this pile of books caught my eye. i had some directions that i tore from a magazine years ago. i had kept it all this time because i knew i would try it eventually. so, i've been folding, folding, folding for about a week now and i finally have enough to fill my entire mantel and a small table in my foyer. i think i'm done. for now.
