Paper Projects – Pendant Lampshade

For the background of my collages, I create a pattern and print it onto paper, then make a cut out to fit around the portraits.  I have therefore found myself with a lot of left over paper that’s too pretty to throw away, so I’ve decided to put it to good use and find some interesting ways to use it around the house. I have long admired these artichoke like pendant lights that I first spotted over at zipper8lighting where shop owner Allison has herself come up with many lovely ways to recycle paper and things.

I was so pleased with the result (despite my not so perfect placing of the circles) I couldn’t help but make another one from an old book and some photocopies of some drawings I’ve done recently!
