Paper-Mache Easter Egg Treasures

Paper-Mache Easter Egg Treasures For Easter I made papier-mache polka dotted eggs. I created them using small water balloons and tissue paper then I filled them with candy and toys and sealed them shut. The egg can hold a surprising amount of candy and the tissue paper seems delicate making for a delightfully heavy and yet fragile object, much like real egg. Also like a real egg you have to break the shell to get at what’s inside.

Flowery Paper Lanterns The lanterns may look intricate, but it takes only half an hour to make one. They appear festive and ethereal by day and, if you place low-wattage lightbulbs inside, softly radiant by night. The lanterns are monochromatic, but you can play with the design by creating an ombre pattern (gradations of the same color) or stripes.

How To Make a Pretty Twist Tie How To Make a Pretty Twist Tie This is an idea I wrote down a while ago in my craft journal. It's been so long since I came up with the idea that I'm not even sure what made me think of it. I suspect I was brainstorming things I could make with Japanese masking tape but who really knows. Anyhow, these twist ties are super easy to make. I think they would be great for favors, especially if you have a specific color theme.

String/Doily Lanterns

String/Doily Lanterns

Jessica of Wednesday Inc shows us how to make those gorgeous twine chandeliers from the inspiration shoot she shared with us this morning. Using balloons, glue and twine, you can also make these lanterns for your wedding – and then bring it home and use it as your very own mid century lampshade. What you will need are: balloons, glue, yarn, tray for glue, corn starch 1/2 cup of Corn starch, 1/4 cup of Warm water, clear fast drying spray paint, hanging lamp cord or fishing line (depending on your desired final product), and a lighting kit if you’re looking for a fully functional lantern. Jessica recommends using a sharpie to mark on the inflated balloon how much room you need to leave for the lighting cord. She also recommends coating the balloon with vaseline prior to wrapping the yarn coated with glue so it doesn’t stick on the balloon once it’s dry.
Staple-Free Pocket Books In an effort to use up the damaged & small surplus of 2010 calendars I have on-hand, I've been experimenting with ways to repurpose them. These matchbook notepads were this week's project. They are easy to make .... and adorable ... and completely practical. I'll be making these to drop into my customers' packages as a token of thanks. The paper is from the offcuts of my shipping labels.

Tissue Flowers A couple of months ago, Jenny - the very lovely editor of PaperCraft Inspirations - asked me to work up a feature on different ways to use tissue paper. You can see the results in the September issue (on sale right about now), and alongside ruffles, twists, layers, buttons and twirly skirts, there's a miniature version of an old tissue-paper favourite. I made these flowers for Halloween a couple of years ago, and although the large scale can look fantastic on card projects, it doesn't leave room for very much else. By scaling it down, you create a much more versatile embellishment and your tissue supplies will stretch a little further, too. This is especially useful if you're using patterned tissue (e.g.

About the Peace Crane This animation shows how to fold a square of paper into a peace crane (a bird). The crane is a bird with a long neck and tail feathers. It makes a great table decoration or gift. Good quality wrapping paper can also be used to make the model.

You know how it goes, a friend calls you and invites you to dinner at the last minute. OMG! What gift can you take?! You scrabble around the cupboards trying to find a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine but find that most of the chocolates have been eaten and the wine has gone. I thought this was a wonderful idea.

Curled Rosewood Wreath

I have seen various versions of Faux Rosewood Wreaths in just about every store and catalog for the upcoming season; most with a price tag running upwards of $40 or more. Some are crafted of paper and other of real wood shavings. Last year I made a few rolled flower gift toppers from recycled book pages and they remind me so much of the curled wood roses I thought they would make a good substitute. {with a much lower price tag} Materials Needed:Foam Wreath FormRecycled Book PagesLots of Hot GlueRibbon to Hang
