1  Woven Paper Heart Baskets in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Pinkonnet on: September 21, 2013 12:17:37 AM


Paper weaving is a fun technique and looks impressive...you could also use this technique to weave some hearts out of beautiful textured papers and stuff them with goodies...they are fast, fun and I am sure kids & adults would enjoy them alike!!! You can try the same with felt material for a long lasting basket! These baskets can be used as party favors, filled with candy, or even as a craft to made during summer vacations...It may look tricky but once you figure them out and get the hang of it, they were so easy and quite addictive!

Hi this is for you...hope this helps!!!


Step 1: You start with using a 7 1/2" plate for your circle pattern. Use the sketch pen to make the outline and cut to shape using a scissor.



Step 2:Fold the circle into 12 equal pie parts on similar lines as shown along side.

 
Step 3:Once the circle is folded notch on the folds using the scissor.


Step 4:Draw a line along the diameter of the circle at the centre. Trace around the plate once again on a stack of 15 magazine papers. Fold your pattern and draw a line through the centre of the circle. Staple the stack together on the line drawn atleast at 3 points. Placing the pattern make notches on the front page of the stack as shown...

 

Step 5:Cut out the stack of circles using the scissor. You make notice that due to the polished smooth surface of the magazine, if the staple clips are not stapled at 3 points the pages may move giving uneven edges and wrong output.
Using the scissors make notches on the stacked papers exactly on the marked points.


 
Step 6:Time for the final touches....First fold the stack into half on the line drawn.  Starting with the outermost page using the hot glue gun, make 3 glue dots as shown with one in centre and the other two in the notches on either side.

Turn to the next ge and glue 2 dots on the remaining two spots. Continue the same for the remaining sides...first 3 dots...then two...thus a make a glue dot on every other notch. Continue alternating the glued notches until there are no more pages left. Each stack of 15 magazine pages makes one half of each party ball. In similar fashion complete both sets of 15 magazine papers each.


Step 7:Once each half is ready they looks gorgeous! Hot glue each of these halves together and also place a ribbon on between the two party ball haves....

Hi Gayle,

That sounds like a good idea! Trust me this gift box is really easy to make and once you assemble the base, you would get a hang of it and finishing the lid would be a piece of cake. You could make this gift box in 3 sizes as well....Hope this pic convinces you to try making the gift box...



Happy crafting...let me know your friend's reaction!

4  Halloween Frameable Arts - Free PRINTABLES in Halloween Decor and Parties by Pinkonnet on: September 20, 2013 08:44:45 AM

If you have been thinking about decorating for Halloween and needed a single accent piece, then these prints would do the trick. They would look fantastic in a black vintage frame (or any color) & sitting on a mantle or table. These prints are sized for an 8 x 10 frame but could easily be enlarged to fit an 11 x 14 or whatever size you needed. I have also included the free pdf links below the pics. Check my take on Halloween subway arts.

8  Paper Origami Gift Box Tutorial Link in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Pinkonnet on: September 20, 2013 03:46:17 AM


Like most, I am also fascinated by the wonders one can create with paper using origami technique. In this case a square gift box with a lid that makes use of a technique called unit origami - a new way of folding paper by joining parts to form final object. By using two patterns of paper and slotting the different ones together alternatively, you can create an attractive and striking patchwork effect, seen in this Gift Box.
