Yesterday I went to Camelia's May cherries Fimo workshop...and inspired by the very cute polymer clay cherries we made, today I created a "post-its stand" out of cardstock.
Here are my Fimo earrings and necklace made at the workshop ( we received some of the cherries and the leaves ready made from Camelia):
I loved her idea so much, that I had to follow it further and create some quilled cherries...:). For some days now, I was thinking of making a "post-its stand" as a present for a colleague of mine, but I couldn't decide how to ornate it...so this workshop came at the perfect moment.
Here's my paper version of the cherries:
At the end of last year, while visiting one of my best friends in Holland, I bought some cards with the pattern for embroidery pre-printed on them. I like them very much because they are easy to make since the steps related to transferring the design from a stencil to the card, are already done...sometimes I am lazy...:))
Here is one of the first gift boxes I ever made (more than a year ago). I used a cardboard box which I covered with a napkin, gave it a vintage look, varnished it, and then covered it's center with some quilling.
Then, I needed to think with what to fill it...:) something original and sweet, as it was ment to be a gift for a very dear cousin...So, I bought candied fruits, as many as I could squeez in...:)
