I love folding paper. It’s one of those things that relaxes me. When I travel I like to take origami paper with me and always make something to leave with the housekeepers tip. Years ago when I went to Aruba for my friends wedding. The housekeeper at the hotel I was staying at, asked if i could teach her how to make a swan and heart. She said she wanted to teach her granddaughter. She was so cute. I left her a pack of paper. She was so excited. It warms my heart to imagine her folding paper with her granddaughter.
I miss Aruba.
Okay back to folding paper.
I used to leave hearts behind that said. “All you need is love. Love is all you need”. I love making them for Valentine’s Day too.
The shirt is perfect for Father’s Day. Add a bow tie, tie, pocket and buttons and it would make a cute card.
How perfect are those swans for weddings. Years ago I made them in gold and white for a bridal shower and wedding.
Those flowers are super easy to make and the possibilities are endless. You can add bling, buttons, small flowers to the center. Or so many other things.
A closer look at the flower.
Have a good evening <3
I’m feeling so tired and I wanted to take the day off from crafting. But I promised myself I’d make something daily this month and I refuse to not keep a promise to myself.
I wanted to make something easy and so I started pulling fabric for key fobs when I realized I have no hardware for them. I quickly put the iron down, and figure out something else to make.
I was flipping the pages of this book to get some inspiration. Nothing seemed to work. I just wanted to be lazy lol
Then I saw half a tutorial on Instagram.
I quickly plugged in my glue and pulled paper. Maybe I could figure out how to make the flower center from just the tail end of the tute.
So I have it a try…
It looks okay! Right?
Then I made another
These are supposed to be for flower centers. But I’m thinking of making some sort of center piece with them.
It’s a beautiful day out and the nieces want to hang out. I’ll be back tomorrow with more goodies.
Happy day <3
I am always torn with what I want to do with this space. I start posting, I get excited. Then I fall off the wagon. I’m not consistent anymore and that bothers me. I started posting a few years after I started sewing. I wanted this to be a place where I kept track of how I was coming along. I wanted to be able to go back and see what I learned. I loved posting. I really do want to get back into it. I need some motivation. HELP!!!
For now I leave you with some flowers. That seem to be all I’ve been doing lately. I have fallen in love with the entire process. I want to send them around the world lol.
Have a great weekend.
