Paper Weaving

Paper Weaving 20140216_152723

So, it was my Mum’s birthday on the 21st Feb, the day before Thinking Day! I decided to make her a card, I alternate between making them or buying them depending if I have a specific idea or not really – or if I find the perfect card of course! I decided to feature a hot air balloon as she loves them, and it was enough of an excuse to go and buy pretty paper from some of the shops around Cardiff.

I weaved 4 different types of paper together, two plain, two patterned and used my lil stamps to do the happy birthday bit. I need to buy some ready made cards that are bigger than the ones I used to make my Christmas cards last year (4in x4in from memory) so that I can make them look a bit more pro really, but she seemed to like it :)
