Silhouette Challenges: Ch# 24 "Use a file in a completely different way than it was intended" (Paper wind Chime)

Good Morning!

It's time for another challenge over at Silhouette Challenges.
This month is  (Use a file in a completely different way than it was intended).

For this challenge I created a Paper Wind Chime. Yes, I said it's a paper one. It maybe silent but will be really cute hanging in my craft room. I have a ceiling fan running all the time so it should constantly be moving.


The first fie I used in a way other than intended was the Box Pentagon. I used the lid for the top of my chime. I used fishing line to string the flowers and butterflies from the inside of the lid.

The second file was the top part of the teapot. I mirrored it to the top and then overlapped it, merged and cut it out. I was then able to fold in half and use the bottom portion under a flap on the top of the box with just the little round part sticking out. Punch a hole in the middle to string the line through.

I really like how it turned out. What say you?
