Cutting up clothes!

I have to admit, I have gone elsewhere to gather my scrapping supplies. I was getting dressed yesterday morning and a skirt caught my eye! I love that skirt! I really do. I wore it alot with a chocolate turtleneck and super cute knee high boots from 9 West. I always received many compliments when I wore it!

But, lo and behold, the boots were past their prime and had to be sent to goodwill. But, I still loved the skirt... so it hung in my closet.
Well, hang no more...I took scissors to it and this is what I came up with!
PS: The skirt cost 3.50 on clearance...so it was not a huge loss!
I hand cut the flourish and hand stitched the fabric to the paper. I love the look of fabric and paper together!
As always, please feel free to click on the photo to make it come alive!

Are those AC thickers? I can't believe you chopped up your skirt! Too funny. I've bought fabric scraps at Joann's, so I guess it's not too weird! :)
