CAUGHT CRAFTING: SMPCraft’s Spotlight on NYC Crafting

#SMPCRAFT #CAUGHTCRAFTING

Thursday, Flatiron building. DIY Upcycler doing a “Blind Date with a Book” for Twitter! The wrapping paper is from an old Trader Joe’s paper bag, the ribbon from a ripped Victoria’s Secret bag, and the stickers are from her co-workers’s recent office re-org.

What’s beneath the wrapping paper? Bet Me by NY Times best selling author Jennifer Crusie, which our Upcycler got at Free Book day and is one of her favorites!
