Paper Twine Designs - Paperilla

Karin Eisele of Germany is an absolute whiz when it comes to making beautiful decorations from paper twine and paper yarn. Unfurling and manipulating the twisted paper results in an impressive array of possibilities.

Paper-Twine-Fantasy-Flower

I came across Karin's blog Paperilla and found myself scrolling all the way to the beginning. (translate.google.com to the rescue, as it's in German) A bit like being in a candy shop, there were so many projects I wanted to share, but have limited my choices to springtime creations (for now!)

Paper-Twine-Butterflies

Karin told me she's enjoyed working with paper yarn for the past ten years and has used it to create many different types of flowers, garlands, and seasonal decorations.

Paper-Twine-Flower

She teaches classes and writes project instructions. Karin's shop on DaWanda, Starpoint, ships Finnish paper twine supplies, kits, and how-to manuals throughout Germany.

Paper-Yarn-Rabbits

Her book of various paper yarn projects is titled Kunterbuntes aus Papiergarn. It features fourteen seasonal designs.

Paper-String-Daffodils

I never would have thought plain, twisted paper could result in a display of handsome Easter rabbits or this gorgeous daffodil garland! Follow along with Paperilla for constant inspiration.

What a coincidence. Yesterday I saw a sunflower in one of the shops in Minneapolis during my visit there and was wondering how do they twist tissue paper to get this effect. Didn't know about paper twine. Thanks Ann for this lovely post. Awesome creations.

A very talented lady; you drew me right in with the dahlia flower up front (at least that's what it appeared to me). Must check out her site; thanks for sharing another beauty Ann

could you explain how to use google translate to read this blog? Do I access google translate and cut and paste everything??? I'm new at this.

Ann Martin said...

Yes, go to http://translate.google.com/. Paste the blog address in the box on the left and choose the language to be translated if you recognize it. If not, click on the language detector button. The translated blog will appear when you click the link in the box on the right.

However, I just heard from Karin that she has added a translator button on her blog, so you can also do it that way.

Ann Martin said...

Yes, it does look like a dahlia! I'm glad you enjoyed the post, Carole.

Ann Martin said...

That is a coincidence for sure! Glad you enjoyed it. :)
