Welcome Back

In today’s post I would like to share details of how to create the Star Book, I showed you in February.

Star Book Featuring Clarity Stamps

The star Book is a classic structure, with links to origami and also to book binding. It is quite simple to make and would be a very charming gift. With a different colour scheme this would also work as a hanging window ornament for Christmas. Would look wonderful in velum.

You Will Need

For the Construction of the Book

  • 6 sheets of paper (100 gsm or less) cut to perfect squares. I used Plain Pearl from the Paper Mill Shop
  • Craft Knife
  • Cutting Mat
  • 2 Pieces of Matt board or similar for the covers
  • Bone Folder

For Decorating the Book Pages

  • Rubber stamps. I’ve used Clarity Stamps CLNC24-E Ornate Corner and CLNC224-C Ornate Corner Small
  • Inks compatable to your choice of paper. I used Brilliance Coffee Bean BD-54

For Decorating the Cover

  • Versafine ink
  • Perfect Pearls in colours to co-ordinate with the project.  Iused Bronze
  • Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabbers. I used Gold

For Assembling the Book

  • Prit Stick, or glue compatible to the paper you used for your pages. A dry glue or double sided tape will prevent pages rippling.
  • Ribbon. Colour to co-ordintate to your project.

Method

Here is my video demonstration, to show the stamping and assembly of the book. I was inspired by an original demonstration by Barbara Gray on Create and Craft TV of a very similar book to this one. My book features different stamps to the one Barbara demonstrated in the show, and I have modified her original stamping too.

Welcome Back 

Last week I showed you a picture of an origami box, that I created for this month’s Virtual Crafting Challenge. In today’s post, I would like to share a video tutorial of how the box was made. 

My Origami Gift Box. Decorated using Clarity Stamps

These boxes will vary in size, depending on what size of paper that you begin folding with. I would recommend using paper rather than card and a GSM of about 80-100 gsm. You could use patterned scrapbook paper for these boxes, or create your own patterned paper, by inking and stamping plain paper. 

You Will Need:

  • Two sheets of paper, cut to a square. Any size, but I demo with  6 x 6″ in the film
  • Steel Ruler
  • Craft Knife
  • Cutting Mat
  • Bone folder
  • Pencil

To Embellish

  • Ribbon
  • Decorative stamps
  • Ink to co-ordinate with your colour scheme.

Method

Here is the film to show you how to create your Origami Box. I am not the originator of this folded design, it is a classic from the origami world. 

 

These boxes would be perfect for small gifts, on tables for parties and for celebrations. I hope you have a go and enjoy making these useful little boxes. The stamp I used on my film, is one of the small Ornate Corners by Clarity Stamps

Star Book, inside the Origami Gift Box

My Gift box contains a Star Book, another classic from the origami world. The stamped design again features Clarity stamps. This is my modified design, based on an original demonstration, by Barbara Gray, from Clarity stamps. As shown on Create and Craft TV in January 2010.
