Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa! (and whatever other holidays that I may have missed which you may celebrate in your country)

Wishing you all a joyful and relaxing holiday!

Here are some pretty cool hand crafted paper artworks and designs!

The Emerald Omar by The Makerie Studio:
“Life sized peacock created for Channel 4’s Four Rooms as part of our Omar series, and sold to Peter Ratcliffe.
The piece is created entirely using hand-printed Chiyogami papers, with gold foil and Swarovski crystals used for the finishing touches on the face and beak.”

240m nylon stringing,
203 clips crimping,
128 circles cutting,
110 swans swinging,
100m paper glueing,
45 beads threading,
– 32 silver bows –
9m ruffles
6 friendly helpers
2 ballet shoes
… and a cartridge in an HP.”
