LESSology Challenge #15: Creative Inspiration of Linda Lapotka!


Hello there friends! How about one more creative inspiration to help you along with LESSology Challenge #15: The Bookend Challenge? Let's see what Linda Lapotka came up with! :)

Linda Lapotka

Hi There, I am so excited about sharing my creations for this challenge. I had so much fun making my bookends.

I started with a few things I found in my collection of "Interesting Things I Just Have to Have."

There is an old domino box, an old wood and metal stamp, two old metal jelly molds and some pieces of pine.
Then I painted, drilled, glued and this is how it turned out.
Most of the wood is painted black and covered with Graphic 45 paper.
 I made one of the jelly molds into a pin cushion and the other one is to hold teasures.
 I added old buttons, dominos, a broken zipper, bobbins, a key, a lock and some lace.

The video shows how I created my bookends. There is a hidden box and some tricks to keep your bookends in place.  I hope you will be inspired to create some of your own and join in our challenge here at LESSology.

Isn't that a fantastic bookend project? We would love to see your entries for LESSology Challenge #15: The Bookend Challenge!  Please read our challenge rules to ensure eligibility for our prizes. :)
