As someone who is a weaving novice, I must say that you are the queen! This is absolutely wonderful. Gorgeous.

As I am an information dweeb, I went and checked out the above-mentioned book.  Here is a quick and dirty answer to your question on how to make honeycomb tissue paper bells:

<<Tutorial for Making Honeycomb Paper Shapes>>

Tissue paper
Fast-drying clear cement (preferably from a tube with a small nozzle)

1. Accordian pleat your tissue paper to establish lines for gluing.
2. Each layer of paper will be designated even or odd. Run a line of glue along the valley folds of the even layers and along the mountain folds on the odd. Stack the paper as you glue each layer. You will end up with the glue lines alternating on each layer.
3. Glue cardboard to the front and back of the honeycomb.
4. Cut out your shape (in this case, half a bell).
5. Glue extra tissue paper to the top and bottom of the cardboard to reinforce.
6. Use small hairpins or clips to hold the shape open.

Good Luck!

Ah, the forgotten Panhandle... we'll never be as cool as the rest of TX, even with the Cadillac Ranch.  Wink  Anyway, anyone know of some hidden craft/thrift shop gems in the Amarillo/Lubbock area?

Thanks from Amarillo!

Try locating the book Creating with tissue paper; design, technique, decoration by Barbara B. Stephan.
Publisher: Crown Publishers
Pub date: [1973]
Pages: 248 p.
ISBN: 0517505797

I've seen it at my library. It has instructions on how to make honeycomb-type decorations. It is actually a really good book for different tissue paper techniques.

Here's my son, The Burger King.

I modified a wizard pattern for the robe. His neck ruff is pleated paper. He offered his unsuspecting victims the "meatliscious brainwich." Mmm mmm mmm.

Forgive me if the photo thing doesn't work. It's my first try.

I don't play Morrowind, but my kid is obsessed. She'd love your sign. What kind of glue/varnish did you use? Did you print out on regular copy paper? I'd love to use inkjet prints in my decoupage, but all my glue/varnish smears the copy.

Even easier-- find dog-theme flannel fabric, cut into large square, serge or zigzag edges. Ta Da! Lightweight baby blanket-- great for summer babies. (I loved mine.)

Sounds like "lickitis" or OCD licking. My brother's dog has it. She's on doggy Prozac and still licks her leg raw. The vet suggested that he give her lots of exercise and attention because it can be caused by boredom.

One of my parents' dogs started licking the wall until the drywall was exposed when she got older. Don't know what that was all about, but she lived to be a happy 15. They just had to replaster a lot.
