I find paper crafts so fascinating, paper making, paper sculpting and crafting, moulding, cards, origami...the list is endless.

Am about to post up a folded nesting box tutorial , I make mine from wallpaper pattern books and they are really nice..the books are for really expensive papers but I got them from the Worcester scrapstore for nowt and they are lovely quality and really good patterns...the boxes are really good for small gifts like home made sweets or soaps or some such.

I really really LOVE making things like boxes, cards, home made paper , paper casts, salt dough mouldings,painted candle jars, candles, soaps creams ...oooh I love making presents for friends and teaching people how to do this stuff!

Sorry Embarassed got a bit carried away...

But my workshops are full of stuff like this and we have SO much fun.... Very Happy

Well, here's my xmas wreath:

Paper wreaths Xmas_w10

It's slightly different to what I left with (added gems and glitter!!! Wink Very Happy ). In case you didn't know, it's smarties paper, and winnie the pooh paper.
