Somebody (MARY) needs a craft lesson......

PAPER TOLE or TOLLING(below) is the art of transforming a two-dimensional image - any drawing, painting, print or photo - into a three-dimensional image of great power and beauty. Between five and seven duplicates and the original are required to construct the tableau, which is then placed in a shadowbox frame.PAPER QUILLING (above) or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quill to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and the coil shaped, these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.

Now don't be making such foolish mistakes again, missy.
