Day 245: Paper Star #2

Paper StarLast Saturday, I finished my paper star. Here’s a summary of what I did to make this.

  1. Created a star-shaped paper frame using pieces of black construction paper glued together.
  2. Glued white paper to the back of the star and then trimmed it to also be the same star shape as the frame.
  3. Glued together strips of red paper to make long strips that would fit over the whole star. I did the same with pink strips of paper.
  4. Then, I glued the strips of paper onto the star, alternating between the red and pink sort of randomly.
  5. Finally, I trimmed off any of the excess paper so that the paper strips formed to the shape of the paper star.

Mine star is now hanging on my bedroom wall, and I love it! I would guess that the whole project took about 2.5 hours total over the two days.

Day 207: Paper Wreath – Part 1

Paper Wreath 2

Paper Wreath 1

On Wednesday, I started working on a paper wreath for my front door. To make the wreath, I cut some colorful paper (thanks Paper Source!) onto strips and then glued it into a ring shape. Then I just glued the rings to the cardboard ring. It was easy enough to do, but gluing the paper took a long time, so I had to divide this project into two days.

 

Day 52: Rose Byrne

Rose Byrne Collage

For some reason, this little doodle inspired me to make a collage with white paper on a dark background tonight. Because I have a girl crush on Rose Byrne, I make the collage of her. Considering I didn’t sketch her face out in advance, I’m pretty content with how it turned out. It almost looks like her.
