3D paper diamonds

3D paper diamonds
Hello there. Hope you all had a great Easter! We had a lovely relaxing holiday (….well as relaxing as it gets with kids). It would have been great to have another week off ^_^ Before I forget I just want to say a big thank you for all the kind messages you have send me regarding my book (you really are a nice bunch!)…and huge thanks to all the people who have bought it so far… I’ve been meaning to get this paper diamond up for weeks now…but it’s taken ages to figure the template out (and I’ve been having breaks between each failed attempt). It’s based on simplified version of Satoshi Kamiya’s origami diamond. These paper diamonds are tricky to make (& require a fair bit of patience) so definitely adults only! When you have made your diamonds you can attach thread and hang them up. How-to 1. 2. 3. 4. Happy Monday all! Edited to add: A few people have had problems printing the templates (the dotted lines do not print).

open wide zippered pouch tutorial size chart Please refer to the full tutorial HERE for step-by-step instructions and pictures. For the contrast bottom style pouches, simply cut two pieces of each measurement listed in the chart by the width of the pouch, and sew together using a 1/2" seam allowance. So for the medium size pouch you'll cut two pieces 4.5" tall by 12" wide and two pieces 5.5" tall (the contrast bottom) by 12" wide, sew them together using a 1/2" seam allowance, thus making the front and back exterior pieces.Approximate Finished Dimensions:Small // 4.5" H x 5" W x 3.5" DMedium // 6" H x 6.5" W x 4.5" DLarge // 8.5" H x 8" W x 5" D Fabrics: The Hello Kitty fabrics from the first post were purchased at fabric.com, seems like Hello Kitty is popping up a lot, so keep your eye open if you're a fan (yip yip!) The medium size pouch is patchwork using an Umbrella PrintsTrimmings pack, if you've never seen their fabrics I suggest you check them out, all handprinted in Australia. Love their basecloth and style.

The Wordclock Grew Up! Well, It had to happen. I first published my WordClock project in September 2009. It was a Microchip PIC based clock, using a PIC16F877A microprocessor. In the last year and a half, I have been constantly improving it, and have adapted it to the Arduino, and even designed an updated controller board for it.

Space crayons By Kate on March 5, 2012 Hello! We’ve been struck down by some nasty bugs in the last few weeks so sorry (once again!) for the lack of updates.

Galaxy de l'origami étoiles When my 5 yo goddaughter and I meet up, we love to hand each other our little handmade somethings. She would shower me with sweet girly drawings, scribblings, love notes, masks or a surprise “masterpiece”. Godma would usually make origami iconic symbols. Not long ago I made her a galaxy of stars, one of her favourite shapes. I have complied a list of what I had made to share with you the wonders of star origami.
