Pretty Paper Everywhere

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am a paper hoarder. I love pretty paper and sometimes it’s difficult to cut and use it BUT I am getting better at it. I mean, what’s the point of having pretty paper if I don’t use it and share it with others?

I love it even more when I can use my pretty paper in unexpected and creative ways. That’s why I’m excitied to share today’s project with you.

The Art of Paper Folding

As you know, origami is the Japanese art of paper folding. Today’s project using our beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP) is based on origami principles – transforming a square piece of paper into a finished sculpture through folding techniques.

Now our DSP is thicker than traditional origami paper so not every design is well suited for it. This design however, was just perfect. Using just three pieces of 6″ x 6″ DSP, I transformed the DSP into a geometric bowl. Check it out.

Creative use for DSP

You can use different sized squares of paper to make larger or smaller bowls. Here I used three pieces of 4″ x 4″ DSP to make a smaller bowl.

Unexpected and creative use of DSP

Same idea, same instructions just different sized bowls based on the size of the paper you use. Here’s a look at both.

You can watch my video tutorial to see how I made this bowl.

Wrapping it up

So what do you think? Was this a unique and creative way to use DSP? I think this little bowls are so cute. I can see using them for parties, as table gifts for in person retreats, or holidays. Depending on the paper used, you can coordinate these bowls to any occassion. Use Christmas paper for festive holiday bowls or use Valentine’s Day paper and fill them with chocolates to share with family and friends.
