My friend Jen and I used to go to Border's a lot when we were in college. We went there so often that we made up a name for a cashier that we saw there almost ever visit. We dubbed him John Paul, but his real name was Kevin. He had very impressive dark curly hair and he was nice and tall. Once Jen said he was flirting with me while he rung me up. I did not notice. Fact.
Anyway, on one of these visits to the land of books I discovered Craft Magazine. I was instantly in love. The first issue I bought had the instructions for how to weave a basket out of old maps. I had recently acquired many maps upon learning that I could get them free from Mr. Grape in the Harold B. Lee Library on campus (second floor through the science section) so this was the perfect craft! Of course it only took me like 2 years to get around to finishing it. No big deal.
jester's hat or something. I couldn't figure out why the holes near the bottom of the basket wouldn't disappear, but once I realized my mistake it all became clear.
PS I made this entire project, reworks and all, while watching the show Lie To Me on Hulu. I am pretty much obsessed (and think you should be too).
