Origami Hearts

Karen over at Club Scrap is challenging us to use origami in our layouts, cards and projects. She lists several links to former blog postings if you need some ideas. I chose to do a heart origami to go along with my Valentine's cards.

Let me start off by saying...this takes practice. I started with a text weight paper, moved to vellum and then cardstock.  I found that folds had to be precise and if you burnish with a bone folder, it was easier to deal with when folds became tiny. I may have uttered some naughty words in creating these hearts...

Heart rejects

HOWEVER...the end result once you get it down is rewarding!  Love this little guy!
 
Club Scrap papers, tags and ribbon. Prima flowers. Stickles. Unknown sentiment.
 
I also did double duty when creating this card.  I used the sketch from Mojo Monday's 430 Sketch with a little bit of a twist to make it my own.

When I first received the Woven Strands kit from Club Scrap I immediately thought of our family reunion after seeing the stamps.  The tree and quotes were just screaming "family".  I gathered up my photos, chose the papers that complimented my photos and then found a layout in the Idea Deck that worked with my photos.  Here I chose the 5 of Clubs from Volume V. I left a few elements out and added a few of my own. I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
