Paper fortune teller origami heart A heart, made of 18 paper fortune teller origamis – a nice present for a loving person! We used piece of paper 9cmX9cm, specially designed to fit this frame. But you can make it with any other size. We used also coloured printing paper. Make Beautiful Paper Flowers: Technical Details. This layout shows varied sizes of punch-outs to glue together for the flower. The pink petals range from large to smaller sizes. Each flower except for the tiny sizes, needs at least two layers and will sometimes have as many as five or six total layers, each glued atop the lower, until you are ready to choose what center you want-large or small, paper, glitter, craft sand, rhinestones, pom-poms. I use an inexpensive thick white glue for all but the topmost layer for the glue-glob, which will be 'sanded' to make a raised textured center.

Make Beautiful Floral Greeting Cards Several years ago I discovered an online advertised book about making flowers from paper. It had bright and varied descriptions of flowers, both realistic and 'other world' types. I was struck with amazement and envy, ordered the book from Australia and began perusing its contents. Its lovely bouquets were fashionable, some framed, some tiny, many large, a few huge. Everything was floral, paper, and it all was beautiful! However, most of the required petal types had to be cut by hand, either totally or after using a type of paper punch such as a large Christmas tree punch.

DIY Tissue Paper Blooming Branches One of my favorite spring visual treats is seeing the trees pop into bloom. Outside of my living room window is a tree full of pink flowers and next door another dressed in white. Wanting to bring some of that visual joy into my new home I decided to make these tissue flower blooms and create my own version of the blooming branches. I found these three mossy branches on my morning walk, just the right size for my chosen container. You can create a design as large or as small as you need. Just choose a container that balances with the height of the branches. Pomander Balls: Peony Design These peony pomander balls (also known as wedding kissing balls) are very elegant and easy to make.

Bracelets: a tutorial This project is inspired by one of my first pins. Credit goes to that first pinner out there who saw it and realized they could make it themselves. Do you use Pinterest? It's funny how a site filled with such creativity can make me feel so un-creative. Like everything has been done before and no matter how great I think my idea is, chances are, someone has already done it. Balls / Pomanders: Daisy Design If you want to make your own wedding pew decorations, try these elegant wedding kissing balls (also known as pomander balls).

autumn leaf bouquet I don’t know what it’s like in your neighborhood, but when I step outside here in Oakland, I sense it right away: Fall is in the air! I’m lucky enough to have a few turning trees on my street, so I don’t miss out entirely on the brilliant autumn colors I remember from growing up in NH. Speaking of brilliant autumn colors, I’m thrilled to share this stunning maple leaf rose bouquet DIY from a fellow Kate — clay, fiber and paper artist Kate Hust.
