Alright, I admit this is not a sewing idea, but if you sew, you are crafty and will appreciate the creativity here. This light is made with playing cards!
Now my mind starts to spin...how about that deck of cards you bought on the cruise as a rememberence and is sitting idle in a drawer. What a cool display, hang from the cieling if not 'electrified' would still make a cool decor item. Here is the back side of the cards...beautiful!
Many photo developers will print a deck of cards with any image you want. A colorful photo, a graphic image, oooh, this could get good!
