What to do with deli paper strips? Because artist Helen Moreda said the strips reminded her of her old quilting days, I downloaded some free quilting patterns from Jinny Beyer's website (thank you, Helen). The strips were cut and combined with black card stock and can be used for pages.
As far as the inked translucent single deli paper sheets go, I decided to try cutting and piecing them for a stained glass effect.
Found this cute pattern here: Stained Glass Patterns - Free - no drawing. I made two copies.
The individual pieces from copy #1 were cut as you would cut a dress pattern. The deli paper pieces were then cut to fit the pattern pieces and glued onto photocopy #2. Even at this size, I found cutting the smaller shapes awkward, but I liked the result.

Have a great weekend!
