As promised, here’s some photos of how the origami ornaments turned out! I had the day off today, so I was very motivated to fold some paper! I went to my local dollar store and picked up some origami paper and I was on my way to awesomeness! Instructions for these can be found on Poppytalk.
Tonight was great fun! I went to a workshop hosted by Poppytalk at Anthropologie. We learned how to make origami Christmas ornaments. Hopefully in the next few weeks i’ll get around to finishing the project and post some photos of how it turned out. Thanks to Joanne for sending me some photos to post. She’s the lovely lady in the last photo of this post, along with Jan from Poppytalk.
Come back soon to see photos of the final project!
My birthday is on Monday, followed by Valentine’s day. This year I made goodie bags for a small birthday party i’m having on sunday. I sourced the craft supplies at my local asian dollar store, stickers, clips, really cute kraft paper with hearts on it and some simple white paper bags to hold all the items that I made. Inside the bags: homemade cookies, homemade banana chips, organic chocolate, and a small toy. If you’re curious about the font I used for the names, it’s called Kraft Nine.
I am the type of person that likes to be thrifty when wrapping gifts (and for pretty much everything else in life too). I especially hate buying wrapping paper, so I tend to recycle and reuse whenever possible. I try to add in a few fun touches here and there by using asian newspaper, string, or even random objects instead of a bow. This year I mixed brown paper grocery bags with small bits of wrapping paper instead of ribbon and topped them off with various gift tags i’ve found online. I am specifically in love with the tag designed by Brooklyn Limstone, it’s super fun and really well designed. Download the printable tags here.
Imagine for a moment…what would life be like if EVERYTHING
was made out of paper.
The agency BBDO mexico has created an amazing world of paper, see for yourself!
