I was asked to teach something for the elementary students. They were my kid's friends, too. There were more than 30 students participated in shift classes.
I taught them how to make Kimono Fridge Magnet. I also had a table to display my crafts. The students and the parents were mostly interested in PUNCHES!!! I even had to demonstrate how to use them and how to create something from one punch. I showed them how to create a dress from a Bell punch (the red one). It was really fun...
Look at those faces!! Don't they look happy? Finally, they were able to finish what i was teaching them, Japanese Bookmarker. They said, they would use it for their Bible markers. Yes, I was teaching ladies in one church in Cirebon. the priest told everybody, that what I taught might open their minds, that they could have something to earn. I agreed with the priest. I have been making Japanese Bookmarker for more than 1000 pieces, and am still making them. I earned and still earn from this cute creation. If I can, so can you.
I love boxes!! These boxes were made with papers. The boxes were covered with colorful plain papers. The lids were covered with Yuzen Washi (Japanese Paper). Yuzen Washi is a name of one adorable Japanese paper. These papers are indeed beautiful. Inside the lid, I stamped: "The Beauty Of Washi".
This black paper photo frame was decorated with quilled flowers. I used spiral punch and leave punch to make the frame more alive. The white bars were free handcut.
The orange nuance frame took quite more time to make.
Aren't they pretty? Quilling is a time-consuming crafts, but adorable one.
