paper spirals

another birthday party is under way!  Molly is turning 4 and having a fairy tea party with her bestie – Presley

These two girls are as different as night and day but they both love a girly tea party :)

In this post: paper spirals (not sure what else to call them!)  As I said before – Arre gave me the idea by attaching a much smaller version to my birthday present (she is an expert at creative gift wrapping)…so here are my directions!  They are easy and make a big statement!

I started with a 12x12 piece of paper

001

fold it into a triangle

002

and then again into a smaller trainge

004

start cutting on the side that is folded (not the open side that you can see above) but do stop about an inch away from the bottom

006

i made my cuts 1” wide…but I needed them to be “sturdy” since (hopefully) they will be hanging in trees..they are fun and more delicate looking at 1/2” wide

008

keep cutting

  011

open it up

012

take the inside corners curl them in to reach each other and tape (or hot glue like i did)

013

flip the paper over and do it again with the next layer

014

keep flipping over and gluing (or taping) alternating sides until you finish

 015

voila!

 016

 017

stay tuned for invitations!

  3. I mean, that first picture is the cutest darn thing I have ever seen. How do you not spend all of your days nibbling on baby thighs when you have such a cute pair at your disposal? I don't think I would get much done.
