for the love of paper!

i love papers of all kinds! i've accumulated quite a collection of japanese washi paper. it's flexibility, durability and brilliant colors make it a favorite! vintage books, recipes, postcards, notecards, blueprints, labels, packaging...the list goes on and on!!!  what are some of your favorite papers???
this weekend i completed a project out of last week's newspapers and a garage sale frame. this was my test model but i'm so delighted with how it turned out. i already have plans in mind for making more paper roses for lots of other projects.what projects do you do that utilize recycled papers?!?!

finished paper rose frame!

laying it all out...
