When I was single, I used to hate Valentine's Day: the cloying emotion of store-bought cards, the exaltation of all things couple-oriented. Then I wised up and created my own tradition. Here is a Valentine for single people everywhere.
After all the presents have been wrapped, opened, and put away, bags and bags of tissue and wrapping paper end up in the recycling bins or, worse, the garbage. Here's a way to use all that stuff to make artful papier mache bowls!

A simple paper technique (with a fancy French name) helps turn inexpensive objects into a luxurious, one-of-a-kind object d'art. Our paper guy shows you how to dress up your home accessories without breaking the bank.
The Home Depot is the last place on earth I expected to make the acquaintance of an artist. That he was mixing my floor paint at the time of our meeting just added a further strange dimension to the situation.

Art is for the ages, but paper is for the here and now! Embrace its ephemeral nature and even turn it to your advantage. Putting a little time into something that's not meant to last can yield wonderful results.

It's white. You can fold it. You can crease it. You can even wash it! But, it's not paper; it's fusible interfacing. And, if you're making large-scale origami this holiday, it is the perfect paper substitute.
