1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / origami X-mas Tree with tut on: November 19, 2008 05:36:52 PM

My sister asked me for a small Xmas tree ... I looked over the internet to find some nice ones... and that's what I end up making... I find this one cool cause I can put some other stuffs in it.. she is expecting a baby girl, so I made this baby car (quilling), and some other girly ornaments...
I hope she will like... and I hope that I can inspire others...

happy holidays to all!!

Here is the video link I used to make the origami xmas tree http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=htA_kyOpO9A but it gets a bit hard to understand at some point, so I made this photo steps...
for the upper part you will need at least 3 differents sizes paper square, for mine I used 15 cm, 13 cm, 10 cm and 7cm

For the bottom part  use the same size square as the bigger one you use for the upper part.

hope it helps...
have fun as much as I had making mine!!!
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Kurumie / oshie on: September 10, 2008 12:15:37 PM
Last time I went to Japan I bought some books, mainly about origami, but one of them is about Kurumie, I had never tried before, so this is all new for me...
I was supposed to use cotton under the paper, so it would give a different visual effect, but I liked the way it turned, next time I will try to make it in the right way... I m using washi paper, but fabric can be also used.

Unfortunately Im terrible at drawing so I guess I will have to keep copying the designs in the book... but if one day I come up with one of mine I ll post a how to make...

last week was my friend bday... guess what he got as a bday present... Wink

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 3D heart card on: January 21, 2008 08:28:25 AM
Few years ago I bought a card like this one

(that one I gave it away) but kept a model for myself, other day I was looking at my old craft box and found one that I had made...
As valentine day is coming in USA I thought I could share with you... Here in Brazil valentine's day is only in June...
I took a picture of the "diagram" to make the card.

Here is the tools you ll need to make the card... As this one I made few years ago I don't have photos of the making process but hope it helps if you want to do one...

Have fun!!!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / "Magic Wallet"... with tutorial attempt on: January 17, 2008 07:32:39 PM

I bought this wallet for my friend but I thought it was interesting and decided to make one for myself...
I always check things here in craftster, but i never had the trouble to post anything.. so I thought it was time... as this is my first time doing such a thing and English is not my native language I hope that you ll be able to understand this tutorial. (I was just wondering if Im not breaking any copyrights...)

First of all you ll need:
2 - paper card 7 x 10.5 cm
4 - rubber band (not sure how it is called) 11 cm

for the fabric you'll need the follow dimensions plus 1.5 cm
2 rectangle 7 x 2.5 cm
2 rectangle 7 x 7.5 cm
2 rectangle 7 x 10.75 cm

for inlining you ll need:
2 rectangle 7 x 2.5 cm
2 rectangle 7 x 7.5 cm
2 rectangle 7 x 10.75 cm
4 rectangle 7 x 16.5 cm fold 9cm up and 7.5 cm down

I hope that looking at the photos you will be able to make your own...
I sewed the rubber bands to the paper card as you can see in the photo, I left a space of 2cm from the top and 1 cm from the side, and the same for the bottom part 2 cm and 1 cm.
I used hot glue to put the parts together but I think you can sew if you want to... I wasnt sure if my machine would go through the paper though...

Now that I was trying to do this tutorial I realised that I should ve taken more photos of the steps cause it is not clear and I dont really know how to explain it Undecided. If I make another wallet I ll take more photos! Grin Cause I really suck with words!!! Cry
But if you have any questions I ll be happy to answer it!
