I loved how my home-made paper turned out, I just had to use it for something--so--I made little envelopes to hold the Christmas ornaments I made for the gals I work with. Now I need to find some way to make cute boxes or something with the rest of the paper-maybe even a book cover or something. Its too pretty to just stuff in my paper drawer.
Had a great weekend and got lots of artsy things done-ornaments for co-workers and ATC's for the trade this coming saturday, home made paper, and I even started a knitted scarf in the middle of it all--whew!! I've already patted myself on the back.
I don't think I'll ever have my very own real flock of sheep, so I made some-in ornament form. These little guys are presents for each of the gals in my cloth doll club-"Sew many friends". We get together at Christmas and have a super pot luck dinner and then exchange handmade gifts. I made this with raw(but washed) wool and rose stems for legs. I still need to add a little holly and a bell around their necks to finish them. My 3 year old grandaughter loved them and claimed one for her own-so I will have to make one more--oh, I think I'll probably make many more cuz they are too cute.
I made them by glue-ing 4 sticks to a piece of cardboard and then needle felting the wool around them. A small amount of black was needle felted to the neck to make the face. Super easy and fun.
