I get way too much junk mail.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining. After all, junk mail is an awesome and never ending source of free crafting material.
A good portion of the mail goes right into my shredder. Shredded paper is great for making homemade paper and paper clay. Plus it’s earth friendly since we are recycling.
How I Made Faux Turquoise:
- Breaking off small pieces of homemade paper clay, I made small asymmetrical “rocks”. (See my tutorial on how to make paper clay.)
- After they dried, I drilled a hole in each “stone”.
- Then, I painted and sealed them.
Voila…Faux turquoise stones!
That’s much more fun than reading junk mail, isn’t it?
