New Craft Challenge with Craft Klatch!

Back in September, Mona from Craft Klatch and I challenged each other to come up with something amazing for the holidays using toilet paper tubes and buttons.  We had so much fun coming up with fun recycled projects that we have decided to do it again!

This challenge involves newspaper.  Oh, and it has to be Christmas themed.  Other than that, no restrictions!  We will both work separately and reveal our projects to each other and to all of you on December 1!  Hmmm….I definitely have worked with newspaper before.

Oh, and there are the pendants I made from cardboard, newspaper and fabric!

So many ideas!  It is going to be fun to come up with something new and original.  I mean, Mona is some pretty stiff competition.  Check out some of her fun projects:
