I love washi paper, especially the gorgeously colourful patterned kinds that you can get from places like Roze (a great shop – check out the buttons..). I am a sucker for reds, golds and greens, especially for Christmas. We’ve been making bauble Christmas cards today – all you need is washi paper, card, a glue stick and a cookie cutter template (or draw your own bauble template):
I’ve also been making some woven hearts (sometimes called Danish hearts) – I love doing these, but I always find making the first one supremely tricky (they have that in common with pancakes!). If you fancy having a go, here are some very clear instructions. They are a little bit difficult, but it’s one of those practice makes perfect situations.
One year, when we were spectacularly well organised, we sent some of these instead of Christmas cards – with little notes inside. A lot of people have told me that they have kept them to add to their collection of decorations – which is a lovely thought…
All being well, I am off to London for some revelry for the next couple of days, so, hangover permitting, I will be back on Sunday with a fabric update. Have a fun weekend!
