one of the best things about running this site is that i get mail from some really nice people. zieak, whose cam creature i featured some time ago, sent me a precious list of hacks trawled from the amazing craftster site. saved me hours of searching. big hugs, zieak.
the first from the list is this fantastic nudie postage stamp lamp by martine. i just love it. naughty and nice at the same time.
the prim and proper ikea gusle paper lantern
the important thing is to remove the bamboo sticks from inside the ikea gusle lamp to avoid shadows on the stamps. keep the top ones to retain the shape. stick on the stamps, flip the switch and voila!
