Upcycling or just paper addiction?

Yes, this is another example of the crazy little pieces of material that appear in my life. Eventually I can't resist saving these and waiting for inspiration! These strips of cardstock are a scrap from a recurring trimming chore at my workplace.

Many of these went directly to the trash until the fiber voice in my head became too loud to ignore and I began saving them. Then it was only a matter of time before I began to weave them.

This piece has grown slowly up and out from the small bridge in the upper right corner. I sometimes only add a strip or two a day but it can be a fun distraction on my lunch break. Perhaps I can cover the whole wall of my cube with woven paper.

I can think of three more stashes of fiber/paper items that are tucked away in the closet waiting for inspiration to strike.

Ideas anyone? ? ?
