GOOD LUCK SHAVING-PAPER
Made of the centres of crhpe paper napkins in
the clover-leaf pattern. A square of cardboard
neatly covered protects the sheets underneath
and a steel ring forms the hanger. The pocket
on the cover to hold court-plaster, and the small
scissors conveniently attached by ribbon, com-
plete this very useful accessory to a man's
dressing-room.

A WILD ROSE CENTREPIECE
This design, which was copied from an em-
broidered piece, was carried out in crtpe paper,
white being used for the centre and a wild rose
design for the border. As the sprays of the
roses varied in size they were first pinned
around the edge of the centre. Then, when a
natural effect was obtained, the flowers were
pasted in place.

A USEFUL SUMMER NOVELTY
The frame of an old fan may be beautified at a slight cost with
white and green crkpe paper. Remove the old coverings from
the sticks and re-cover them with the green cripe paper. Use
circular pieces of the white paper for the tops, simulating
feathers by using four extra circular pieces fringed. Athread
running through the centre of each stick will hold them in place.
The dainty fan illustrated above was made in this way.

FOR A SUMMER COTTAGE
To make this candle shade use two fans.
Cut out the heavy end sticks, press and
paste together to forma circle. Trim the
edges with pink paper roses. The sticks
are threaded with wire on a strip of asbes-
tos. A tin candlestick imbedded in a rose
forms the base.

UP OF AMERICAN BEAUTIES
he new ways to frame a snapshot pic-
o implant it in the heart of a rose. Any
is clever in the art of making paper
may provide this artistic setting for any
of pictures. The leaves in the centre
oses must be cut out in order to form
inds for the pictures. Strips of crhpe
ted at the edges form the bow.
NEW IDEA FOR A LAMP SHADE
Snapshot pictures may be used as
a decoration for lamp shades.
Nothing could be more appro-
priate for a young girl's reading
lamp than one of these shades,
reflecting the faces of friends or
familiar scenes, especially if she
happen to be away from home.
A frame may be covered with
cr pe paper and trimmed with
paper fringe and flowers. The
pictures are simply pasted on and
the paper cut away underneath.
For a home den, pictures of peo-
ple and places of personal interest
are appropriate. A horseshoe
sketched on one panel adds to the
a'tractiveness of this inexpen-
s ve novelty.
A FLORAL DOILY
Small flowers cut from the wild rose design
in crpe paper form the border of this doily,
and are pasted to the centre, which is of white
crepe paper. Violets, clover and other small
flowers may be used with equally good effect
in making these dainty pieces for use upon
the summer luncheon or dinner table.

PRETTY FRAME FOR A PRETTY FACE
One floral paper napkin was used to make this
dainty frame. The foundation is a square of white
cardboard, upon which the napkin was neatly
pasted after a circle was cut out, as shown in the
illustration. An extra piece of cardboard is pasted
back of the circle to hold the picture. These
frames sell quickly and with profit at church fairs.
A PAPER PINCUSHION
Paste four ruffles of paper, fringed and gathered,
on a circle of cardboard. For the top, faster a
small stick in a piece of cardboard and arrange
cotton around it in the shape of a bell. Cover
this with fine net over crhpe paper and paste it
to the foundation. The ribbon trimming com-
pletes a pretty pincushion.
