Papertrey Ink Birthday Bash - Oragami

Oh WOW! The fun just never stops over at Papertrey Ink's Anniversary Celebration...

Today's contest is to create a card or project using Origami. OK~ no problemo, right? Hmmmm... Nicole included several sites on the web to refer to for instructions for those of you who have the dexterity and patience to play along today.

I tried several "simple designs" and ended up tossing lots and lots of paper in my recycle bin.

This is the card I ultimately came up with.
Now, I know, no one would evahhh paint their house like this or have heart shaped windows,
but I was going with my inner artist here :O)

Love my new MS "Grass" edge punch and I punched out two different colored greens then attached them to the bottom of the card, making it look like grass in the front and in the backyard of my little house. I am sure I will find more exciting ways to use it once I have the time to play around. Click on the photo for more detail, the door is open so come on in for a cup of tea. Thanks for looking!


  1. You did get in touch with your inner artist! This house totally works with your clouds, grass, and tree :)
