Envelope Origami

Envelope Origami
I'm not sure if "envelope origami" really exists but for my amusement lets pretend it does. Envelope origami - to create a likeness of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one envelope. In this case, I folded an envelope into a box. It's an easy craft to turn your junk mail into something functional. Security envelopes work best for this project.

Craft: Easy Paper Bows If you've been following this site, you're probably guessing I got this idea from an earlier post about origami bows. However, this paper bow actually came about when I was making some paper pinwheels. It all started like this; I was debating whether to do a post on mini yo-yos or mini guitars. Trying to decide, I started staring at my bulletin board wishing there was a pinwheel on it to spin. Supplies:Square piece of card stockOne bradHole punchScissors With right side of paper facing down cut paper where you see dotted lines. Bend top flap down revealing right side of paper. Attach top left corner to the brad. Attach top right flap to brad. Once your bows are made you can adjust the shape by trimming the bows if you wish. These cute little bows would make the perfect bunting for a party.

Voici le matériel dont vous aurez besoin : Des filtres à café.Des piques à brochette ou autre objet en forme de tige.Du scotch de fleuriste.Un stylo.Une paire de ciseaux.Du colorant alimentaire liquide de la couleur de votre choix. Voici les étapes à suivre : Commencez par tracer les pétales sur vos filtres à café, de forme pointue, comme sur la photo par exemple, ou encore arrondie, en sachant qu’il vous faudra un minimum de 6 formes pour une fleur, puis découpez-les. Séparez vos pétales en dépliant le bas des filtres : cela vous fait donc 12 pétales, que vous devrez assembler en les enroulant sur une tige recouverte de scotch de fleuriste. Trempez ensuite votre fleur dans du colorant alimentaire liquide pour lui donner sa couleur, puis laissez sécher la tête en haut pour que le colorant descende. *Retrouvez tous nos tutoriels mariage dans notre section Fait Maison.

How to make 3D paper ball ornaments I love 3D paper things. Love. And when I saw a little picture of what appeared to be paper balls in a CB2 catalog, I thought, "I am going to make those." So the other day while Alex was writing a paper about mysterious things like polymers and flexible films and tactoids, I made a paper ball. Then I proudly announced I had created a tactoid and it was sitting on my desk. These are made from 12 slotted flower shapes that fit together to form a sphere.
