Paperweights

If you love old embroidered pieces as much as I do, 
you'll understand how difficult it is to let them go.

With a box full of old
Table Cloths
Aprons
Napkins
And even a Bed Spread
I decided it was time to
RePurpose.
(some of it anyway)

So
I made Paperweights


Yes, I finally broke down and actually cut some of them up!  
It was a little bit hard for me at first, but I'm over it now.


They were fun to make, and at least the old embroidery is 
Out Of The Box!

":o)

How did I do it?

I purchased some paperweights from my craft store's clearance bin
and 
replaced their paper backing with my embroidered pieces 
(which had been mounted onto acid free mat board) 

Simple as that!
