do this, so I did and I have to say I'm very pleased with the results! A while ago Linda had a tutorial about how to remove colour from crepe paper http://lindajos.blogspot.com/2009/03/crepeing-back-in.html the logistics of which proved to be a tad difficult over here. Firstly our crepe paper is folded flat and secondly the colour took a long long time to come out leaving me with a waterlogged blob which I thought would never dry. Eventually, I worked out a way to carefully peel it apart and dry it in strips.
And the tag swap, well now Linda, Nathalie, Carole and Patty, here's photographic proof I'm on the job, the Marie's are just formalising their travel documents and they'll be on their way!

NO WAY! A Frenchified crepe paper creation? Oo la-la! I can't wait! Well, I can - no pressure, but you know what I mean! ha ha!

By the way, I placed my soggy blob on a heating vent/duct and the paper dried within hours.
