Cirese de mai/ May cherries

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 this workshop came at the perfect moment.
Here's my paper version of the cherries:

Broderie pe carton/ Paper embroidery card

Hello all,

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 them:

The center topper of the card is  a spirella disk.

Cutie vintage / Vintage ghift box


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...:)

Cutiuta origami / small origami gift box

Hello all,

since Easter is getting closer, and we all start thinking about gifts, here is a small origami box I made some time ago (before starting the blog...:) ... ).

I made it from gift wrap and decorated it with a flower made using a heart shaped punch and small golden butterflies.
Here is the tutorial I used when learning how to fold it:
