Some of my latest lot of paper roses....yummy !Honestly, these are getting so addictive :)
This is my favourite one so far ! Last few days I've been trying my hand at making paper roses. There so many gorgeous ones online that I got totally smitten ! After many trials and many, many errors these are the lot I've made. Finally I think ,I'm happy with these. What do you think? Now that you've seen the roses I would love to hear your ideas on how I can use these.
Did I tell you that I'm on a paper art frenzy these days. Even though I like making punch flowers , these days I'm into totally handmade roses. No punches, dyes or cutters. Plain old paper and scissors!
This is the first of the roses :
I've used regular cardstock. The next one , I thought should be a bit different . Here it is :
Let me know what you think ? Which one do you ,like better. I'm open to suggestions. Please feel free you share your views.
After seeing loads of beautiful Kusudamas online , I just had to give in and make some myself. There is a very peaceful feeling when you are folding these little colourful papers. As you can see I went on and on ...
And then only when all the papers were over did I stop. It was a breeze to make these pretty little cones once the folding part was done.
And then the flowers ...around 40 of them ! Told you, it's addictive. I'm afraid I will not be able to hold a square piece of paper in my hand ever again without turning it into a kusudama petal! Already the kitchen napkin , the dishcloth etc are getting their share.
And once the flowers are ready ..... just put them together you make a ball! And play around ...
The centres of the flowers were looking a bit empty so I filled them up with some pretty little pearls. And here they are all ready !!
I want to try out a few more of origami stuff but need to get more papers first. Can't wait to make more.
