Rolled Paper / Ruffled Paper

Here's a nifty follow-up to Monday's post that I stumbled upon at the quite new and always interesting site, Whipperberry.

The little, twig-like pumpkin, made of rolled and ModPodged strips of scrapbook paper, is way more rustic than the finely twisted Korean hanji featured that day, but I have to say it's quite lovely in its own right.

Emily posted a step-by-step tutorial for making the cute orb... you might want to roll up your sleeves as it sounds like good, messy fun!

Another site I'd like to introduce you to is Reduce, Reuse, Redecorate. It's a brand new blog started by Allison Patrick... you might remember her fantastic architectural quilling from last autumn.

Allie is on a mission to introduce us to thirty cool projects in the next thirty weeks, each of which will feature at least one of the three Rs. She's very clever and has an eye for design, so I know we're in for a treat.

Have you noticed how popular ruffles are right now? Well, Allie's kickoff project is a ruffled paper lamp that's covered in .... can you guess?

Coffee filters!

Follow the tutorial to make one of your own, or let Allie make one for you via her Etsy shop, Zipper8Design.
