wild rhino...

sometimes i join swaps without really thinking much about the theme of the swap. at the time i join, i think it will be easy to figure out. then, as time goes by, i realize it isn't so easy to figure out. the swap i'm talking about is an african safari atc theme hosted by marie. i've been putting off this swap for weeks, because i could not figure out what to do. as i watched the due date get closer, i decided i needed to work something out. so i hope this is going to pass! and look, unity! at first, i cut the pp too big, so i had to trim it. what i had left were these tiny strips. i thought they might look cute used like ribbon, kind of, so i decided to mix them with some hemp twine behind the rhino. gives it a different kind of look.
