Next week I am hosting a craft party for my girlfriends. I started this new tradition last year and it was a lot of fun.
This year I have come up with these three ornaments which are relatively easy and fun to make.
My son took up origami this year and has made tons of even really intricate things. The first thing he made with me was a paper crane. We watched a youtube video to figure out how to do it, so this year I want to make 6 white paper cranes to commemorate this hobby that took up the better part of this year. It will be fun in years to come to take these cranes out and say:"Remember when ..."
I made crane paper out of two sheets of white tissue paper, which I put on top of a new flat and unfolded plastic garbage bag. On top of both layers of tissue paper I brushed a mixture of about half and half Mod Podge and water. Then I cut the sheet into squares of 6 inches with my trimmer.
I think the semi translucent quality and the slight wrinkledness of the home made paper makes this project special.
I am a Danish American decorating life in Seattle. I love all things design and DIY.
I can’t think of anything more fun than coming up with project, making it, photographing it and sharing it with you on my websites.
I am a Graphic Artist, a remodeller and home maker by day.
