The years go so quickly and I go back to recap all of what I have done and to make more resolutions. My first one for the new year is to do more art to share and teach more. This will be my final entry post for 2009, so I shall share how I made a New Year's surprise card for a friend. This is the finished package. I have always been facinated by Origami and hope you will enjoy it too. Here is how the piece unfolds.
Here's some wonderful illustrated instructions for you at this SITE. You can use any size square paper. I happened to use the large 12" sheets you use for scrap booking. As for the center cut out, you can find the figure on a collage sheet HERE.
Don't you just love how it has another hidden surprise? Fill it full of confetti or your favorite medium. A great surpise for any time of year.
The top was a small folded piece and unfortunately I can't seem to find the template at the moment, but when I do and I figure out how to use my new scanner, I will add it. (Note to self... I resolve to be more organized and learn new technology. lol)
