The days have already gotten longer…still light out after 8:00, coming home from another superb Mom’s Night Out evening.
Purple Heaven from my dear friend Kristin…isn’t she sweet!!!!
It’s time for grilling, biking, yard work…and before long weekly music in the park, camping, swimming in the river… yahoo!
One of Pam‘s new lamb Siera, ultra people friendly.
To celebrate the start of another month, hopefully spring-like here in High Desert, I folded up more Sakura flowers. Here is a simple pictorial/tutorial for your own paper-folding adventure/enjoyment:
Follow pictured steps from top to bottom…1) start with with a square, color-side down (not shown)
2) make a valley fold along a diagonal & 3)fold bottom corners up to upper center corner
1) Place finger in one of newly created triangles pockets and make a squash fold as shown in top photo
2) fold down corners of new kite shapes & 3) fold outer flaps in half as shown
Pictured steps from left to right; fold each triangular side flap in once more time
Glue side flaps of the unit together. Repeat above steps and make 4 more petals.
Next, glue each petal, connect to one and other, last petal again to first
and viola…your first Sakura!
I’m taking it all in with enthusiasm because I know it won’t last. Yes, there will be another winter some day, but for now I just want to stop and commune with nature.
Curl the petals if you like the effect…embellish them to your heart’s content!
May MAY bring much sunshine and warmth to your part of the country 😀
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
