Origami-Inspired Architecture, Fashion, Furniture, and Home Goods

Have you ever noticed that Japanese origami is often seen in our daily lives? I don't mean actual paper folding or cutting, kirigami-style... I'm talking about the influence of sharply creased lines in architecture, furniture, clothing, home and fashion accessories, and even as I linked to in my most recent newsletter, in the next generation of bandages.

Have a look at these stylish examples rounded up via Instagrammers whose photos I enjoy...

A Round Up of Six New Paper Craft Books

Recently I came across an intriguing selection of Hot New Releases in paper crafting books on Amazon. After sharing the list with a paper pal who responded enthusiastically - "Ah! What a treasure trove! I promptly sent my local library this list to purchase. They love people like me making official requests so they can expand their offerings." - it occurred to me you might enjoy hearing about them too.

Personalized Quilled Wedding Gifts and Specialty Papers from Paper Connection

A friend's daughter married several months ago and in June several members of her husband's family will be visiting for the first time from overseas. My friend wanted to have special presents on hand that could easily be packed for their return trip, so asked me to make quilled pieces that she could frame, and also a card.

I'd wear any of her designs in a heartbeat! Read on to learn how to win a piece of your choice.

Modern Paper Jewelry by Alfieri Jewel Design

 Congratulations to Kate Hague, giveaway winner!
Look for another paper jewelry giveaway that will launch 4/30/18 on the blog and Instagram.

Verde Alfieri, jewelry designer and owner of Alfieri Jewel Design based in Milan, Italy, makes contemporary necklaces, earrings, and bracelets using beautiful paper and high quality findings. At times she upcycles old book pages into wearable art. I'm admiring the undulating curves of this sophisticated necklace. It's doubtful anyone would guess the subtle specks are achieved due to printed text.

Award-winning Quilled Ship - Sea Quill by Licia Politis

The annual Sydney Royal Easter Show took place in late March through early April this year, and once again my Aussie friend, Licia Politis of New South Wales, created a paper art project that took top honors in the quilling category. Sea Quill was awarded a first prize and was displayed in the Standard of Excellence Showcase.
