Or Something Similar...
I think I mentioned a while back that I was looking for a piece of chicken wire to use to display my collection of needle books. Well, I never got around to going to search out a hardware store where I could buy a small piece. When I was digging at The Bins last week I found these wire grids and decided they might work just as well. I think they are for one of those cube storage solutions.
I'm sorry about the poor picture. This is a really hard spot to photograph and it really isn't as crooked as it looks!
I bought 4 of them but it turned out I only had enough room to use two. I just tied the two together with lengths of seam binding ribbon and then used a longer piece as a hanger. I had that black flower laying around and it kind of tied things together.
I tried the mini craft clothespins to attached the cards but they were too small. I am not happy with the full-sized clothespins because they take up too much room. I think binder clips will be my eventual choice but have to get to the store and buy some.
Little time for junking this weekend but will be making a quick swing through the VOA in a little while. I'm sure craving some buttons!
