A box decorated

After making the roses you can see I went on and on...
I was given a few very nice suggestions how to use them. And I'm on those ideas but one at a time. A couple of more flowers in the mean while ..

Roses anyone ?

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.

Crocheted Bag

Another crocheted bag ! Yes, this seems to be a never ending story :).I fell in love with the bag my cousin had made. I have seen so many of these bags on ravelry too and had to give it a shot.
You can find a nice tutorial for this bag here

More paper roses

I was so happy to see that my last two roses were so much liked . I just had to try and tweak it around a bit to make yet another one a bit different...
And then I thought of making a tiny one with a little bit of colour on the edges. Here is the fourth one , so teeny it's less then an inch.
And finally , all my roses together. These are four different types. I'm hoping to make some more....need to get the colours to paint my petals. Until then ...I'm working on other flowers:)

Paper Roses

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.

Colourful Kusudamas

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.
