A Saturday afternoon well spent.
Did I mention my new favorite book? Yes, I did, it's Playing with Books by Jason Thompson.
Yes, that's my Collage Fabric Vase, it looks good with anything!
All these projects are from "Playing with Books". I tinted the paper buds with jasper red from Luminarte Twinkling H2Os. (You can get more ideas for Luminarte products here.)
I had some strips left over, so I made a bow.
Found a home for my Kusudama flower. I'm going to make more of these.
Then I tackled the house. Now, I think I'm pretty good at folding, but this house was a bit of a coordination challenge--I resorted to glue at the end. My father taught me origami, so it seems appropriate that I'm using a cookbook of his to make these paper projects.
I love my spring flowers and do want to build a village of houses!
