Congratulations to the winners - Donna and Cathy!
Helen Hiebert, paper maker, artist, and author (Playing with Pop-Ups is her newest book) recently launched a line of high quality paper crafting kits and will be sending a kit of choice to two U.S. commenters. Each kit would be an ideal project to make prior to the holidays as the results are decor and gift-worthy, not to mention crafty family members and friends would enjoy receiving kits to make on their own during long winter evenings.
The Window Star Kit comes with enough kite paper to make ten light-catching stars in assorted colors to brighten your windows. They require simple folds and a bit of glue. This project is for ages 8 and up.
There are three Shadow Lantern Kits to choose from and each is beautiful... Star Lantern, Celtic Knot, and Snowflake.
Use a craft knife to cut the design on card stock and back each piece with translucent paper. Balsa wood and paper hinges provide structure and a tea light placed inside casts a shadow. This project is for ages 15 and up.
The Shadow Ornament Kit was inspired by Japanese shoji screens that divide living spaces while adding to their ambiance. It features a pre-punched design. This project is for ages 10 and up.
The Envelope Folding Screen Kit utilizes paper cutting and bamboo skewer/paper piano hinges that flex both ways. This makes it possible to not only use the screen as an eye-catching display object with a light source placed behind it, but also as a four-sided lantern.
Decorative paper is slipped inside each envelope. This project is for ages 13 and up.
Unique supplies and text/diagram instructions are included... I love the convenience of kits!
The Interchangeable Ring Kit features a simple origami fold that results in a 3D vellum topper held in place by a slim magnet on a metal ring base. This project is for ages 10 and up.
You'll use collage paper, basket reed and wire to make this Party Light that can be hung or placed on a table. This project is for ages 10 and up.
Helen will be sending a kit of choice to two winners in the U.S. Just choose your favorite and name it in your comment as your entry through Sunday, November 16, 2014 (visit the kit page to learn more about each one). Be sure to include an email address within your comment so I can contact you, as Blogger does not allow me to see the top portion of the form.
Winners will be selected by a random number generator and announced on this post when both have been notified. Good luck!
