I am so good at making a drama out of an everyday occurrance and today was no different - I deserve a posh frock and an Oscar I'm sure.
My good friend Anne aka Legs is always creating marvellous things from bits of paper and string, amongst other things, and when she posted a challenge on Papercraft Planet to recycle a newspaper or magazine into something that wasn't a card, I knew I wanted to join in but hadn't a clue what to make!
I set about the task of creating something this morning still with no idea what I would end up with - surely that's what creating is about? Extreme Carfting......

At this stage I had a vague plan which involved rolling the pages around the pencil to make long thin tubes. That's about as far as I got.
A surprisingly sturdy pen holder, made from a few pages of a magazine and an empty tape roll. Bargain!
