I got this look by mod-podging junkmail and construction paper circles over the entire cover and base. I didn’t actually choose the construction paper colours. I just used The Boy’s rejects: orange, pink, purple, yellow and brown. He’s a touch picky about his construction paper hues. Anything remotely pink or purple or yellow he rolls his eyes and will not touch. Way, way too girly. And I think he rejects the brown and orange because they do not excite him… He knows what he likes, I guess.
And I borrowed my little sister‘s 2-inch circle punch. It came in darn handy to punch out the quantity of paper circles I needed.
The cover was originally clad in grey paper. I removed that about 5 years ago. Here’s what the cover had been looking like these last few years. I yawn.
Quite a change, eh?
I could have made an effort to have the top and base seam match. But I didn’t even think of it, truthfully. So I may have to fix that ’cause it’s bugging me now. But I like the basic concept and colours. It’s fun to have something this colourful and lively in the house!
Now I feel like circle-podging the living room too. Don’t think Lo will go for it… I do have a lot of paper circles left though. So, fair warning: don’t be surprised if you see them here sometime!
