Michele Pacey occasionally embarks on crafting series on her blog, Michele Made Me. She takes one creative technique and makes a string of projects that explore its possibilities.
In her gum wrapper chain series, she adapted this time-honored technique into a beautiful gift topper (pictured above), a lampshade, a picture frame and wreath, and a bracelet.

I love all the cool things that can emerge when you settle into one idea for a while. And, what a great way to make use of old phone books!
