things-a-week 5 and 6: washer necklace, future library

I was out a lot last week, so I didn't have a lot of time for crafts at home. I was able to throw together another washer necklace, though:

The one with the wine bottle label is something I made late last year, while experimenting with DIY gift ideas for some friends. The one with the street signs is the one I made for last week's thing-a-week.

I'm not too happy with it; I actually salvaged a botched washer piece to make it, but that made trimming the edges of the paper difficult. That's why it looks a little rougher than the wine label piece.

For this week, I made another popup building. This one came out of a doodle, but I started to imagine a library. I kept imagining monks with winged hats coming out of these doors while water or fog flowed under the arches and spaceships flew overhead. Kinda retro, kinda not.

  1. It looks like an old building in the Middle East or India!

    I recommend a link—sculptures made out of and inside books. http://geektyrant.com/news/2012/12/14/awesome-harry-potter-book-sculpture-and-more.html
