Create your own paradise - Tropical Paperweight

This craft could not be quicker or simpler, yet the result looks really stunning.

Your friends will certainly ask you where you got this item from!

Take one photo paperweight, these are the ones that you can add your own photo's in - readily available in most gift shops and not too expensive - mine cost $10.

Take the image of your choice, here I used a gorgeous napkin from islandcollections.com.au. If like the napkin, the paper's a little thin, glue to a light weight piece of card, cut to shape using the paper image in the bought paperweight as a template. Cut carefully and place into paperweight.

The effect in the 3 dimensional glass cube is awesome. I'm going to have a go at using maps next. I bought an old vintage style atlas from a charity shop the other day so will post results soon to inspire.

Happy Island Styling!
