Paper Onion Garland

Paper Onion Garland
I made these map garlands as a special request for a customer and they have proved rather popular. The map colours glow in the light – all those blues and green smoosh together into something very pretty. This is the style I call ‘paper onions’. I don’t know what else to call them! These are paper hearts, strung on twine. There are eight on a string. I’d like to experiment with something other than twine though. Like this: Like Loading...

Series 7 - Ornament-ED Finale: Heart House Ornament I have been feeling some feelings lately. Like, feelings of well-being. Like, spontaneous-breaking-into-song-and-general-wonderfulness-type feelings. I know... It sounds pretty floofy, but I can't help it. Embossed Washi Tape Washi Tape was on the heat in scrap booking and paper crafting world a while ago. I have been loving this translucent effect of the washi tape when I first saw it… never bought one because I wanted to make it myself. I saw many tutorials on how to make it, I find the tissue paper and double-sided tape version most appealing to me. I am not repeating what other has done, I want it to be something special, so, I embossed it to become a dimensional washi tape. I think it is not available in the market yet but probably later after they see this tutorial… lol…

Miniature Gardens: Tillandsia Terrariums There is something about small gardens that I find magical.

Paper Scrap Light / Chandelier It’s a whopping 70 degrees in Brooklyn right now, so I’m going to get out from under the pile of packing boxes in our house and get some fresh air. Before I head out, I wanted to share this beautiful (and totally genius) DIY light project that graphic designer Gabrielle Guy created for a friend. After moving into a new house and finding an old lantern left behind, Gabrielle decided to cut strips from scrap paper and glue them onto the shade. Two days later, the result was an incredibly stunning artichoke-like lamp that looks expensive but cost close to nothing.
