I got some at an asian market by my house and decoupaged a picture frame.

But, the frame was kinda chunky and the opening for the picture was pretty small.  It turned out to be so busy you wouldn't have noticed the picture.

So, I secured a piece of scrap velvet to the little cardbord inset.  Then I went and got this little brass buddah who had been sitting in one of my house plants and secured him on that with fishing line. It looks great and I'm quite proud of it.

I was using jute paper which is very thin, if your paper is thin too, be sure not to put darker paper behind it or it will show through and obscure any pattern that may be on the lighter paper above it.  It also had a tendency to tear, but once it was modge-podged on there you couldn't even tell.

Have fun!

I made a lot of cool candle holders with oragami paper... Just get a big clear glass candle holder. (The round ones word best) and mod pdge the paper to the inside of the glass. Mod podge over the back of the paper when your done, and ONLY use tea lights, otheriwse you may light the paper up Sad . They are very pretty though.

make your own hanging lantern. Get a lampshade form, and use the paper to cover it then get a hanging light cord and a soft bulb, ta-daa

If you don't have a lampshade form, wire hangers are really easy to bend into shape - particulaly a square shape which looks really good with asian inspired design.

lately i've been cutting oragami paper into about 1/4 inch stripes and weaving them together, then gluing it to canvas and putting a b+w photo in the middle.  the oragami paper is so colorful that it contrasts nicely with the photo. 

he's feeling it and so are all the boys he's with.
