New Year Party Ensemble

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas - I sure did! Every year it seems to pass so quickly and this year we made a point to enjoy every day leading up to it! I can hardly believe it is over and now we're thinking about the new year!

For our "try something new" challenge at The Kraft Journal this week, I decided to create something new from something old - vintage dictionary pages and made this matching paper bow tie and party hat ensemble! Shhhh, don't tell anyone, but my husband and I actually tried them on and they're really pretty cute and would be fun to to wear to ring in the new year! I found the tutorials on Kate's Paperie and finished them with seam binding and stick pin accents.

I hope you have some time to get crafty this week and I can't wait to see what you link up for this challenge! Have fun!!

Supplies: Dictionary pages (The Kraft Outlet), Seam Binding (7 Gypsies), Stick Pins (Jenni Bowlin)


  1. Glad you had a great time ! Love this funky duo but really want to see them as worn by you and your hubby lol! . Very clever use of the paper.


  2. LOL What a fun project Jen! Too bad you couldn't sneak a pic of your model. LOL

  3. Ha ha, this is fun! Looks very nice! You should wear them, then you would be very original!! Any nice plans for the New Years Eve party? We will be with friends, a small group, nothing very special, just nice! And close to a Chinese restaurant, so that will take care of the fireworks, ha ha!!!
    I saw the package from Pti was delivered, hope it reached you all well!
    Hugs, Wendy

  4. How totally creative and wonderful! Happy New Year!
