Let's Peg It!

I came across some jumbo pegs at my local Tiger store and knew one could be easily transformed into a unique photo holder.

The pegs were a bargain at £1 each.

I took a peg apart and used each piece as a template on my paper. I cut these out with a craft knife and stuck the paper to the peg pieces using Mod Podge.

Once dry, I brushed on a layer of Mod Podge to form a seal.

Finally I added 3 flower embellishments to the bottom of the peg ... less is more, as they say!

This peg is a great photo holder, but also great for keeping together important bits of paper, including those supermarket coupons!

What a great idea, and perfect for the leftover offcuts of paper that I always accrue.

Very cute. I like the idea that this can be as fancy or simple as you want it to be.

Tiger is such a great store. This has made me want to head off there. It is really hard not to come out with a heap of shopping.

Fabulous and a bargain at a £1 each. The nearest Tiger shop is in the midlands :)
