Pinterest Challenge - Scrapbook Paper Lampshade

The Pinterest idea for a Lampshade Make-over comes from Martha Stewart.  It was a fun project, and I like the way the paper gives the light a muted glow.

I looked for semi-transparent scrapbook paper, and I really liked the look of this citron seersucker stripe. 

I followed Martha's directions, folding every 1/2".  The texture of the paper made it difficult to get sharp lines.  I also found that I had to punch holes at every fold rather than every four ~ maybe it is time to get a new hole puncher!

I threaded ribbon similar in color to the paper and drew the folds inward.  A little bow at the end, and my lampshade was complete!
