Origami paper crafts - it is amazing what occurs when paper and a bit of glue come together. Let's see what happens when we make origami magic...

Recycled Gift Bag Flowers

The minute I laid eyes on this beautiful red, green, blue and silver striped paper bag from Paper Source, I knew I would never be able to bring myself to throw it into the recycle bin.

Instead, I cut the paper into small squares, and hand folded each square into a petal.  After I assembled them into flowers, I found a cute blue glass vase which was perfect for these adorable paper flowers.

I would never have thought to put these colors together, but the color combination turned out quite nice!

Happy Mother's Day!

This bouquet of origami flowers was handcrafted with a special lady in mind.  I found some paper that had some beautiful blues, greens and purples, and created a vibrant bouquet using some coordinating blue and purple paper.  Love this color combination!

Remember to give your mom a big hug today!

Happy Mother's Day!

Something Blue Wedding Gift Boxes

I had the opportunity to work with a lovely mother of the bride who had prepared something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue for her daughter.  She was looking for a set of four boxes that she could use to package her gifts into a beautiful presentation for the bride. 

Taking into consideration the sizes of the gifts, I created a set of four nesting origami boxes, stacked on top of each other.  These boxes had the labels "Old," "New," "Borrowed," and "Blue."  Tied with a ribbon, I think this set of gift boxes turned out beautifully!

These boxes can be found at my shop on Etsy:

Musical Origami Flower Bouquet

After I saw these beautiful sheets of musical sheet paper, I knew these would make a gorgeous bouquet of flowers for a music studio or on top of a piano. 

The earth tones are a nice change from the black and white color scheme of most sheet music.  I like how they warm up a room.
