What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Paper Folding

Hello, everyone!  Ahhh, it's Wednesday and on my workdesk today are artist trading cards in various stages.  I am pasting the backing on a few so that I can send off the ones I have traded... 


Have I shown you the plastic bins under my desk?  They are filled with all sorts of papers, paints, beads, rubber stamps and whatever fits in...


And let me show you a paper flower I made from this tutorial.  I used book paper but you can use all sorts of colorful paper.  You can even make a lot of individual flowers and glue them together to form a Japanese kusudama, a paper ball traditionally used for incense or potpourri.  This tutorial shows how.


So how about you?  What have you been up to?  If you are interested to see what other bloggers have been doing on their desks, just go visit the Queen of WOYWW, Julia.  Or why not join the fun and let us take a peek at your desk if you haven't already.

Hi: What a great post. Thank you for sharing the how to video. I wanted to let you know I took your advise and did not throw away the imperfect tea cups. I gave the away to any lady that posted they wanted them. They went quickly. I have a lot to learn. Thank you for the good advise, I followed orders and feel good about it. Blessings to you, Martha
