On the back of our last catalog, we challenged you to recycle the paper in a creative way.
We received the most amazing note via email. One customer took our challenge and used the pages of our catalog to create this awesome jewelry. We are so impressed and surprised at how she re-purposed the book. Great job Ashley!!! You can buy these pieces and more at Ashley’s etsy store or befriend her on myspace!
Did anyone else see that challenge on the catalog? Anybody else do something creative?? Leave your email in a comment!

This challenge inspired me to make a necklace organizer. I was so tired of untangling the mess. I made one from a fp catalog and a few more from some 30s reproduction fabric. They really work great!

Inspired by the message on your catalog, I decorated the very boring box holding my makeup with the Free People catalog, and some dried flowers :) Recycling is fun! check it out ---> http://www.flickr.com/photos/24631741@N03/2329593351/

diy sequined canvas

We first posted photos of the sequined canvases when our NYC store opened. Now they are part of all of the FP stores’ spring display. A reader commented asking how to make these, and one of our talented display girls had some great advice I wanted to share with everyone.
For our proto, our designer actually hand sewed each sequin on by hand, and then left a space for the screen printed flower applique. She does not recommend doing that yourself! Luren suggests going to a fabric store and buying a small amount of sequined fabric, maybe the stretchy variety. This could be a little expensive, so another great alternative would be to find some sequined wonder of a dress at a thrift store for a couple of dollars. That way you would be recycling material and not spending much $$. The fabric can them be fixed onto a frame of canvas stretchers and decorated as you like.
Hope that helps! If you end up making the project, you should send me the photos and I’ll post them on the blog! Just leave your email address in a comment and I will get in touch. Happy crafting!

Hold on! It ain't over 'til it's over. I'm still going to post my swap gift picture and introduction on the flickr page. I think other people's photos and gifts are still trickling in too, so keep checking the swap page. : )
