Origami Flower Card

April 26th, 2015

Spring is here, and I thought I would fold some Origami flowers. I found a variety of origami flower inspiration in the book, “Origami Flowers” by Kazuo Kobayashi.

For this project I used the Morning Glory instructions found on page 23. It was a fairly simple flower to fold.

After I had folded a variety of Morning Glory flower sizes, I arranged and pasted them on a card, made of Nepalese paper.

This card was super fun and easy to make. I’m going to send it to my mom for Mother’s Day. :)

Mr & Mrs Wedding Card

April 13th, 2015

This past weekend my boyfriend’s cousin got married.  I wanted to make a simple Mr & Mrs wedding card for them with a little added quirk.

Wedding Card Close Up

I used the Italian Decorative paper that we carry for the Mr & Mrs lettering on one of our A2 Make Your Own Cards (sold in packs of 10 folded cards with matching envelopes) and a Night envelope.

Wedding Card

The top hat was made from our black text-weight paper and the veil was made from the Japanese paper, Maruju.  I used our white poster paint pen to decorate the front of the envelope with a cut out flower from the paper.

Looking for a simple card with a personalized touch? The Paper Place has what you need. We’ve just started selling these little gems from Mark’s Inc.

These laser cut envelopes come three to a pack with a small notecard inside ready to be personalized for that special someone in your life. Decorate the card with anything from coloured pencils to glitter and see it shine through the message cut into the envelope.

IMG_1807For this one, I used a solid green washi tape with one of our more translucent tapes on top of it. It’s quick, easy, and a delightful way to put a personal spin on a gift or by itself!

 

As always, have fun with it!
