I love this project. It always perks up my spring when we do it. This year I didn’t have any old Nat. Geo. magazines to use for the vases but I did have wallpaper scraps. The magazines were always good because there always lots of pictures with color and pattern that made great vases. I let the kids pick a background paper from light blue, turquois blue, dark blue, violet, and black. They always turn out quite striking.
