so I thought I would share a few little papercraft projects with you.
Its a ball made from Kusudama flowers, I found the tutorial online at Folding Trees.com .
The tutorial comes in two parts, the first part is how to fold and glue the individual kusudama flowers.
It was quite a fiddly task making all the individual kusudama flowers...
They require lots of patience, careful cutting, plenty of fiddling with glue & many, many clothes pegs!
But I really liked the look of the finished ball featured in part two so I had to keep going..........
until finally TAAA DAH!!
I had THIS !
Glueing a combination of the 3 different coloured flowers all together, I made this pretty hanging decoration.
The next papery project concludes with a bit of a mystery...
Well it started off happily enough, my beautiful sister and her equally beautiful (but much sassier!) daughter celebrate their birthdays this week.
I made two cards; one for my sister.....
|featuring watercolours, pen and the recycling of a bunny from her last years birthday card to me!|
And one for my niece....
|featuring some lovely little felt bunnies I picked up in Paperchase last year.|
so I popped the cards in my handbag and headed off to the post office to but two envelopes ...
got to the post office...
hand in bag.......NO CARDS !
Decided I had left them at home (could even picture them , back home on the kitchen counter!)
Went home .... NO CARDS !
So SOMEWHERE in this sprawling metropolis
SOMEONE is in posession of these two handmade cards
and I am hoping that when my lovely sister sees that I DID make her a card
she'll forgive me for not having had one from me to open on her birthday !
I have a crafty plan to make it up to her that I might just share with you next time ...
Thanks for visiting,
