Stash Busting Sunday: Paper and Doilies

I found this gorgeous book of gift wrapping paper at the bookstore some time back.  On the right you can see the 12 different designs.  The papers are too nice to use for gift wrapping so I immediately thought craft and crochet.
 I am crocheting doilies in corresponding colors.


My plan is to cover tin cans with the paper and set them on matching doilies.
Upcycling and stash-busting combined.
Joining Linda for stash busting.
Have a super Sunday!

Oh! I love it! Gorgeous papers and the doilies to coordinate! I have to go on Ravelry and see if I can find a doily pattern. I keep meaning to do that and then I forget.
It's on my list to do doilies in yarn and colors. I love yours...what a great idea!
