Atelier Braduti din reviste / Christmas trees from magazines - workshop

Buna tuturor!

In 21 decembrie, la libraria Carturesti de pe strada Mercy, din Timisoara, impreuna cu Incubator 107 Timisoara am facut braduti din hartie reciclata... mai exact din reviste, asa cum ati vazut intr-una dintre postarile mele anterioare.

Participantii au avut o rabdare infinita...:)) si printre canile de ceai cald si amintirile pe care le-am depanat, au pliat revistele pagina cu pagina.
Iata ce-a iesit:

Dupa ce am teriminat bradutul, urmeaza ornatul...

Le multumesc tuturor ca au venit si sper sa ne mai intalnim la ateliere si anul viitor!
Craciun fericit!

Red and green Christmas / Craciun rosu-verde

hello all,

A week ago I received my Sizzix Big Shot machine...this is the best Christmas  present I can think about...:)
Then I needed some dyes and so, I decided to buy the Sizzix Sizzlits decorative Strip Die - mini paper rosettes by Tim Holtz since these rosettes make you think of snowflakes.

Here are the card I made using this die:

I also used some little Christmas stamps from Do Crafts.

Felicitare cu camee / Vintage cameo card


a few weeks ago I made this card for a very dear colleague and friend...a vintage cameo card.

The cameo paper comes from Stamperia and the background from Far Far Hill

Bradut din hartie reciclata / Recycled paper Christmas tree


This will be a very quick post, just to show you the small Christmas tree I made from a magazine (the idea is not mine, I found the tutorial on the internet)
The trick is to use a magazine with lots of pages, and to have a lot of patience...:) as you have to fold the magazine page by page. How it's done?
First bring the top right corner of the page to the binding of the magazine. Then fold the page one more time to the binding.
Fold like this all the pages.
In the end, fold inwards the small corners that form at the bottom of each page.
glue together the two covers of the magazine and you have your tree! It's that simple...:)

After you finish it, you can add some glitter glue or fake snow or any other embellishment you like.
Some of the pages from my tree are a little wrinkled because I had to take it to transport it in a bag...but you can get an idea about how it should look like.
