One (Wo)Man Sticker Factory

I shared these shots over on Instagram but thought you might enjoy seeing them too!

As soon as our new tapes arrived last week, I was itching to turn them into stickers. I ran through the last set of stickers pretty quickly, so I wanted to stock up on lots more to include with this week's orders.

What I love about the special illustrated rolls of tape is their versatility - you can use them to seal envelopes or decorate stationery, plus they make really sweet stickers when you just want to add one or two accents rather than a whole strip. Do you know the simple secret to making washi tape stickers?

I have a really hard time choosing my favourite from this assortment, but the Bottles are pretty great! Do you have a favourite?

The Kirigami Project - Week 15 - Drops

On this grey and drizzly Spring day, a lovely flower design made up of raindrops seems perfectly apt. I love the loopy-nesss of this design.

While I'm quite smitten with the raindrops, I think any shape inside a shape would look quite lovely here in lieu of the drops - pointed petals, hearts...

To create your own kirigami Drops design, use the template below and the 6-point folding pattern.

If you do try this design, we'd love to see it! Share on your favourite social media site with the hashtag #thekirigamiproject.

Happy crafting!

The Kirigami Project is a collaborative creative project from Marisa Edghill of Omiyage and Geri Jewitt of The Languid Lion. Marisa creates the kirigami designs and Geri whips them into template shape! Each week In 2014, we will bring you a new kirigami design to fold and cut.

Getting To Know Series

I'm pretty delighted to be kicking off a new interview series over on Oh My! Handmade. The Getting To Know series will be a monthly interview with a creative entrepreneur - chats with makers, artists, designers and small business owners at all different stages of their careers. I think it will be really interesting!

The series kicks off today with a conversation with Jennie Walker of A Little Vintage. Jennie creates gorgeous dolls, fabric jewelry and textile art pieces. That's a peek at her work process up there.
