Clearly Besotted April Teasers Day 2

We’re back again with a set that I absolutely adore! It’s called Paper Play and I’ve had fun creating two projects (one later this week) using this set.

Who doesn’t love a bit of origami?! My Mum used to make all sorts of origami animals and when I saw this set, I just knew I needed to have some origami as the base for the cute critters. Having done a little origami, I knew that ideally I needed to have thin origami paper but I really wanted to use the pretty paper so I persevered and had to squish some rather chunky folds. But I was delighted in the end result, albeit with less precise folds than I’d have liked. Isn’t the butterfly so dimensional!

The little fox seems rather proud of himself for having created such a wonderful piece of origami and is busy showing all of his friends. The sentiment seems entirely appropriate too.

You wouldn’t need to make an origami butterfly- you could simply use a die cut one, or cut out a shape yourself. It makes however a nice change from a flat matt and I’ll definitely try some more shapes. My kids were rather amused seeing me watch some 11 year old kid on YouTube whilst I learned how to construct the shape!!

It’s time now to visit the Clearly Besotted blog and on Instagram too. As usual, please go and visit my lovely team mate Michelle Short.

Then we have Francine Vuilleme, Adele Emery, Mona Toth and Alberto Gava to visit who always create wonderful things!

Hope to see you tomorrow,

Keren x

    This is so beautiful, Keren! What a fantastic origami butterfly, I love it and it looks exactly like the one the fox is holding. Love the colour palette on this card too! xx

    What a uniquely beautiful card. Never considered using origami on my cards but, after seeing this little treasure, I’m going to try it. Wish me luck.
