Paper again!

I've spent the last two days with working with paper again. Paper is a very thankful material.
I've seen beautiful tin plant holders in a webshop, and I fell in love with them. And what's the perfect material for imitating thin tin plate? The plants were made of paper, too. The details are not the same as of the original plants, but the effect is the matter. The gift bag was an experiment and it's ok for the room.

When I made the present for my mother, I've already try the paper weaving and I liked it. So I took this technique for the laundry basket. (It would peek from behind the folding screen!) It took me a long good movie to make only the weaving!

I've new followers again! It's amazing! I send these anemones and columbines from my garden to you and to all of my followers of course!

Your plants are fabulous as is the laundry basket! I've tried the paper weaving with a much wider strips and so know that it's not that easy - that's why I totally admire your basket as it's made of so thin strips!

Fab work,

Wonderful plants, love the planters but most of all I love the laundry basket. Unique and so clever.

It's a try whether it's ok.
