Easy Origami

Here’s this week’s 3D challenge, from Paper Craft Planet! 3D 116.

If you’re looking for something quick to make, this is it!

think these would be fun for a patio table decoration or kids party.  Maybe something in

red/white/blue or red & white for my fellow cannuks :D

Here’s the video on how to make it.  I’ve seen many versions of this, including this one

from S.J. Renoir.  Here’s my take on it in video form:


For the large blue Grommet on the side, I used the Making Memories Grommet Kit.  Fun tool.

The CS is from Stampin’ Up!

I will admit, when I made the video, it was the first time I tried making it.

My youngest guy, Liam who’s 5, made another one with me afterwards …

Super easy & super fun.  Hope you have a good time making one too.

Give it a go (start to finish not even 10 minutes).  We’d love to see what you’ve made so be sure

to upload it to Inlinkz and link to your blog so we can all be inspired!

Origami Purse Video

Well, here’s my first “go” at a video tutorial.  I was playing around with this idea from last year’s Origami Mommy blog entry and loved how it turned out.  Here is my take on her purse-basket.  I am thankful to say that I didn’t knock over the video camera that I had perched over top of me, despite being distracted by my youngest & also our 10 month old 50 pound puppy, Sparkle.  Hope you have fun with this “long video” & it inspires you to give it a go!

Christmas Eve Question

Hiya Kristina,

Just before we went to the Christmas Eve Service & were all dolled up we thought we’d ask this question to you:

Since you always have so many surprises & new ideas for your blog, what do you have planned to do with your crafting for 2010?

PS Amy is the crafter in the family, but in our home a crafting Mum is a Happy Mum.

Sorry for the low quality recording … it’s the ole’ cam corder :)

Holiday Blessings from Amy, Mike, Emma, Malcolm, & Liam.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, from Ottawa!

About 5 minutes before I put the video on, Malcolm asked if he could play “Happy Birthday” on the piano. ‘Um, can you play that?’  ”Give me a minute, I think I can…”

Forgive my video & editing skills, they are rough.

Happy Birthday!


For Miss Kristina

I am throughly motivated by MACM (Make a Card Monday) that I first discovered over Christmas time while surfing on YouTube. Kristina has asked if we had any questions for her, only stipulation is the question had to be via video. If you have seen her videos you’ll know how groovy they are, the camera angle, the speed, the music & of course Kristina and her creativity! Here’s our question:
