WOYWW

Good morning! Wednesday again and there’s a real feel of autumn in the air.

I’d hoped to show you a long shot of a lovely tidy workdesk but I’m afraid that was a pipedream ... maybe next week. Anyway as you can see I’ve been trying a bit of origami. These bows aren’t too difficult to make and I will get it right soon! The first one is in the bin, the white one is inside out and the gold on19.09.12e I cut the tails too short! I’ll get there!

Thanks for visiting my workdesk, I’ll be hopping round some more at What’s on your Workdesk? Wednesday. Hope to see you there.

ETA Ta da! I’ve cracked it!3 bows

EATA So many people have asked for the tutorial that I’ll share my source! I originally found the bow on Totally Tutorials but the link was broken. If you Google Origami Bow there are loads of tutorials but I learned to make them from this video on YouTube. :o)

Loving your bows Sue!
I’ve not had a go at Origami for years, think I can still make a Crane from memory though.

Thanks for stopping by this week.
Happy Crafting!

Oh I love origami but haven't done any for ages. Must have a go at doing bows as they work SO well. Love yours, even the one with the short tails, as it would really work at the top of a tag. Thanks for sharing and for dropping by, hugs Buttons #79

Sue from Oregon said...

Hello there other Sue! Your creation is sure to be cool with your lovely bows and pretty red papers!!!

Julia Dunnit said...

These bows are amazing...I have to be honest and can't tell the difference between inside out and right side out, I'm too short sighted!! Well done for sticking with it, they really are great. And you and I don't have the same meaning for 'untidy desk' either!

sixofone aka Leah said...

Those bows are gorgeous Sue, and if you think your desk is messy you should come round and see mine

Tertia said...
