Papier Maché Japonais

It's no secret around here that a pretty paper maché vessel will stop me in my tracks.

Paper Maché Japonais Vase

Case in point, I was thrilled to come across this beauty, and it even comes with a tutorial (if you don't mind translating French). Aline Caron of My Little Fabric covered raw paper maché with white paint and Japanese cherry blossoms that she cut from patterned paper and decoupaged on glowing gold leaf.

And the little golden bowl next to it... zip over to Aline's post to see its interior. Well worth the click, as her photography is simply beautiful!

Facebook Finds this past week included:

Faux underwater scenes at Anthropologie
Make cute paper diamonds
Topographic paper cuttings on display

Have a beautiful weekend and remember, the Paper Works giveaway ends on Sunday!

  1. I clicked and you're right it was worth it! Beautiful! What do you do with your paper bowls? Use them?

  2. Kim, I don't actually have any; I just talk a good game. :) But if I did, I would use them as decorative objects the way Aline shows hers.

  3. Ann, thanks for the link to Aline's paper mache vessels...they are adorable!!
