There's a great new challenge over at My time to Craft this week
Use newspaper or pages from a book
I really enjoyed this challenge - probably because its a wee bit different. I didn't want to go down the paper flowers route as I felt sure everyone would do the same - but if you have a look at the MTTC challenge blog - you'll see just how original my teamies over there are!
I used this cute image by Crissy Armstrong at Whimsy Stamps called Want to fly a kite available here
I thought the newspaper kites would work well for this challenge and I made them very simply by cutting them out of newspaper by hand and cutting and colouring scraps of card for the crossed bars, I also cut bows to go on the kite strings. I really like this cute little guy - he's a real little tubs!
This is what I did....
