I remember back in junior school making stained glass style ornaments from black paper and cellophane. They looked so pretty on the windows!
So when I came across a box of old stationery that included these plastic folder dividers, I wondered if they could be used in a similar way?
For some completely unknown and bizarre reason I decided that an alpaca was the only thing I would want to make from them. I mean what else would you choose?
So I found an alpaca silhouette on the internet and some cardboard and proceeded to make a stained glass alpaca frame!
Once cut and painted, all I needed was some double sided tape and the plastic cut into the right shapes.
Then some more tape and a pice of string at the top for hanging and it was time to stick the other side on.
So now I have a cute alpaca hanging in my kitchen window! It’s hard to tell in these pictures, but the light really shines through the colours.
