Designer Easter Grass
I think Easter grass is just plain fun. All the bright colors are so festive this time of year.
But what if you would like something Easter grass-ish, but in colors that are not so bold?
Or what if you might like a little pattern added to the grass?
Well.......I thought it would be fun to make some toile Easter grass.
First, I found a piece of toile scrapbook paper, and then made about 12 black and white copies of it with my copier. I actually copied both sides of the paper so it was completely patterned.
Next, I ran it through an old shredder that only shreds vertically. You could just cut strips if your shredder does not do this.
This is how it turned out.
I think this would be a great way to make gift basket filler. Can you picture colors like aqua, green, or a soft pink in a baby basket? Or maybe some red paper, blue paper, and green paper with black dots copied on it for filler in a kids gift? What about typing a couple's name over and over on white paper for a wedding basket filler? I can see I'm going to have some fun with this!
