Today I wish to thank Kimara at Wee Folk Art
for inspiring me with two very fun projects!
The first was folding German stars. Last year I bought a kit but never mustered up the courage to give it a try. I thought it looked too complicated but her post instantly changed my mind. Now I'm folding stars from memory and my children have joined in and made some too!
Then I had a thought ... what other kinds of paper can I transform into these gorgeous stars? I pulled out some brown packing paper that I had been saving, cut it into strips and made a repurposed beaded ornament. So fun!
Then the following week Kimara posted her tissue paper trees. Ooh we had to try this! The kids used an 8.5"x11" sheet of water colour paper and I used a small scrap and made a Christmas card.
What I liked most about these crafts is that they are perfect ways of repurposing scrap papers into gorgeous ornaments, cards and artwork!
There is just something about turning "waste" into something beautiful again that is so inspiring to me.
Please share your thoughts and comments!
