Let me back up from this fascinating story of my paper and tape. And paper clips! First I hung up a length of some old fabric washi tape I had. I didn't have enough so I had to put up not one, not two, but three scrap pieces of ribbon, which is actually old fabric washi tape that I had leftover from Valentine's Day. I tied them all together to make one long rope to string from my window.
Then I paperclipped the squares of origami paper. I was going to stop there but it looked a bit sparse. So after failing with the paper lanterns, I cut the paper into strips, cut a fringe at the bottom and taped them to the big string.
All this you see here is pretty paper, ribbon, tape, and paper clips. That's it! On the craft measuring stick of life, this is like a negative 2, it's so easy. But it looks so pretty! After I'm done hanging it in the living room for awhile, I told Julia she could have it for her room. Did I already mention that I was so delighted with myself??
