I’ve been trying to decide what to do with several pretty colors of Plaid watercolor paints, and I finally figured it out! I saw these nifty flower paintings made with books and string and just had to give it a go. I tried it out and it was so much fun! I think the girls and I will be making more of these to use in out present wrapping.

Handmade gifts are so wonderful, I just love giving them. However, we don’t always have the skills or the time to make all the gifts we would like. Etsy to the rescue! You can get some beautiful hand crafted creations quickly and easily from the comfort of your couch. Celebrate this Cyber Monday and support small and home businesses by filling your gift list with some of these lovely pieces of art.

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

The Origami Helmet is such a fun piece to make. I remember making them out of big squares of newspaper to make a hat for myself when I was little. You can start with different size papers to make different size hats for anyone – or even for all your toys. This is a great way for a little one to start learning origami.

Origami Helmet tutorial from Jessie At Home

The origami helmet can be made with paper that is a different color on both sides for a decorative effect. Be sure to crease well after each fold. (more…)

Origami Swan – Quick and Easy

| Crafts

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

The origami swan is not only graceful and beautiful, but it is also quick and easy to make. This is a great piece for someone just learning origami.

Origami Swan from Jessie At Home

To begin the origami swan, fold a square piece of paper in half diagonally with the color that you want to be the main color on the outside. Unfold. (more…)
