41  My first sock monkey - updated. Sock Menagerie! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ebygomm on: November 28, 2010 10:01:12 AM

Updated: more sock critters made! I've added the tutorials for the giraffe and the elephant below

Two things achieved in one today, first sock monkey made and first Christmas present  Smiley



Quite pleased with how he's turned out, he needs some eyes still, but I've not quite figured out how I'm going to do them yet. I think I'll probably give him a little jumper too.

42  Danish Christmas Hearts in Winter Holidays by ebygomm on: November 22, 2010 01:04:50 PM


I've been busy making Danish Christmas Hearts this evening, now waiting on some more paper stock to arrive. I've already posted the tutorial in the papercrafts section but thought it might be of interest here too.

It all went together so well, I didn't think it could possibly be wrong. Amazing that they're made from exactly the same 30 units, just assembled differently.

I've had a go at a smaller one today, a bit more fiddly but pleased with the result

I did have a feeling the above didn't quite look right, my points didn't seem pointy enough. Well, I'd assembled it incorrectly in my impatience. Taken apart and reassembled I get this

This was just a practice one, I was surprised how easy it was, going to try a smaller one with some better paper next

48  Danish Christmas Hearts - including printable template (Updated) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by ebygomm on: October 28, 2010 09:58:36 AM


"Julehjerter" are traditional Danish Christmas decorations woven from paper. They can be filled with sweets or candies if desired or just hung on the tree or just about anywhere as decorations.

To make the process easier I've made printable pdf templates which can be printed onto A4 craft paper, getting rid of the boring part. The Basic Heart Template produces the hearts pictured in the step by step photo instructions, and the diagonal Heart template produces the hearts pictured above, but it's the same process used for each.

Basic Heart Template

Diagonal Heart Template

1.Print the basic heart template onto two contrasting coloured sheets of A4 paper, for the diagonal heart template print page 1 on one colour and page 2 on the other colour.
2.Cut along the black line to create 3 rectangular strips from each piece of paper
3.Fold along the dashed line
4.Then cut out along the lines to create a shape, consisting of a square with a semi circle at the end.
5.Cut along each black line to the line that runs along the top.
6.Unfold each shape, and refold so that the inside is now the outside so the printed lines will be hidden on the inside
7.Weave the strip from one side, between and then over the strips on the other side
8.Thread each strip in turn
9.Make sure the strips go through and over, not under and on top
10.As you get nearer the end, it gets trickier to thread the paper
11.The finished article, the final step is to attach a handle made of paper or string
12.The heart can be opened out and filled with sweets if desired or just hung on the tree





Central Star Template as pictured below
