WOYWW 351 – lots of stuff


Hello WOYWWers! I very nearly didn’t even try to take part this week, cause I am struggling with time, but I figure I have to just try to make time for the things I love.  So here’s me, tryin’…

I have a few things on my desk, and my desktop.


I was making a template for a cut&fold book, cause I am still just a huge fangirl of TWD.  Yes, even at my age…  There is also the cut&fold I did yesterday, adding to my Me as a stencil and Me as a stamp collection.  A closer look:


Of more interest, probably, are the flowers.  It seems to be a thing to decorate folded books with the kusudama flowers.  I’ve made the standard version but they take AGES, lots of folding, etc.  I have an easy version bookmarked, that creates a quicker, but still effective flower.

They end up looking like this


But I went on and experimented further with making the flowers using a number of different Nestie shapes, as well as the 4-petal version:

There are a few tricks to the scallop and spikey circle versions, which I will share probably tomorrow. But for today, I will just say Happy WOYWW and hope to get round for a few visits at lunch! I wonder what I will see?  Oh the antici……………….pation!

  5. Oh it’s great to see you! The folded book MA is amazing, really clever and such a good idea! Love how you’ve run away with the flower idea, so you! Your desk looks tidy, I hope you’re not mojo-less with everything else going on.

  6. Another WD fan here too. Love that cut and folded book of you–so cool! The flowers are really neat and you get such a nice variety using the different die cut shapes as a starting point. PJ #63

  9. Hi Mary Anne, love the book. So much patience you have! I see you are a walking Dead fan too, so is Beloved Hubby. Those flowers are amazing-love how the die changes the petal shape. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #12 xx

  10. That book is so cool! I love it.
    I must admit to be a late-coming Walking Dead fan. My 24 yr old son made me watch it once i quit work. I never had the time before as it was on past my bedtime (had to get up at 4 in the morning). Must admit to being addicted now lol.
    Gorgeous flowers!

  15. Wow, that book folding is very impressive. It’s been a while since I visited. Haven’t had the time to get round as many desks as I’d like of late. Here’s to us both managing a few more this week.

  16. those flowers are dead drop gorgeous. happy woyww Vicky#3

  17. Hello lovely gal! Thanks for dropping by my desk…good to see you again, hope you’re ok. I’ve always loved origami (don’t ask me why cos I sure don’t have the patience to do it!) and am intrigued to see how the shape of the die transforms into the different flower petals. It’s like magic!! I really love them 🙂
    Hugs, LLJ 13 xx

  18. The cut and fold is exquisite, I love doing that kusudama flower but never thought to use other shapes, well done
