Here is where the inspiration for the whole Spring Mantel came from: the scrapbook paper section at Michael's. I fell in love with a grouping of papers, and had to buy one of each. But I'm not really a scrapper.... so what was I to do with them? Aha! I cut them in long, very narrow pennant shapes. Then I simply curled them, just like you would curling ribbon. I love the fact that you can see both sides of the paper in the curls. Scrapbook paper lends itself to this particularly well.
