These “artimals” are mostly decoupaged dinos, but I did sneak one lonely little elephant in there. Anyways, clockwise from the top right I used: used wrapping paper, old subway maps, comic book pages and phone book paper (the yellow pages), and old magazine pages (here, a Reader’s Digest to be exact). There’s a smallish dino somewhere that’s decoupaged with newspaper advertisements, but I’m not sure I got a picture of him…
You don’t have to save the entire magazine, necessarily. Just go through it and tear out the pages that have lots of nice colors and good images on them, then throw the rest of the magazine into the recycle bin. Make gift bows with the pages you saved! It’ll save you tons of money during the holidays, especially. Bags of gift bows at Xmas time cost a few dollars each, but these bows are $0! You already pay for the magazine subscriptions, right? Well, get your money out of them twice! Or you could just mail the pages you tear out to me… I’ll use ’em :)
Here are some samples of little toy-filled gift bows I’ve made over time. These absolutely charming paper gift bows are handmade using pages from “Jack and Jill,” a children’s magazine. Each is accented in the center with a cute little toy, letting you decorate your gift with a gift! Each bow measures almost 5″ in diameter.
These can be sold individually or as many in a set as you like. If you’re interested, leave me a comment or send me a convo over on my Etsy page, and I will post a special order listing for you!
