1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Heart Garland! on: February 07, 2011 10:37:04 AM


This project was my first using a Cricut and I love it! I made this for my mom - cheesy, I know.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Painting Origami Paper/Kusudama Paper on: March 15, 2010 02:04:42 PM
Has anyone tried painting origami paper (specifically with watercolors)? I'd also be open to another kind of paper that is thicker than origami paper but no thicker than a thin cardstock). I can't seem to find the origami paper that I want and would like to add my own colors.

I'm trying to experiment with paper to make a kusudama. http://foldingtrees.com/2008/11/kusudama-tutorial-part-1/. I've already used origami paper and magazines paper; I've also thought about using scrapbook paper. The origami paper is light but I don't know how sturdy it will be in the long run; and magazines are very colorful but you never get the same thing twice and cannot customize any patterns (it's sturdy, though); scrapbook paper is nice and comes in a lot of colors and patters but can be a bit expensive (plus I'm not sure if it can be painted).

Any ideas would be appreciated =)
