I made paper balls!

Kirigami paper balls that is. And it took me a whole freaking 3 hours!!! But they are cute and look really good in Isabella's room...



I hung them off a stick and hung it from the ceiling in Isabella's room




Here is what was hanging from the ceiling before the paper balls:


(the paper balls were a kit from the company DJECO - all sorts of stores sell them like this one)

  4. I love them!! Kinda scared me that they take so long time to make, but I'm going to give it a try. Bought a kit a while ago but haven't opened it yet...

  5. I was surprised it took so long too, Ylva but in the end it was worth it. It's a good project to do on a rainy day.

    Thanks Morgan!

  6. Hi,

    We have the same kit, which we made yesterday. However, our paper balls are on the flat side. Not sure why. I used the pencil to puff them out a bit as indicated in the instructions, but I wonder what we did wrong. Yours are beautiful, by the way.

  7. Thanks Stefania! These ones ended up a bit flat too so I used a pencil and my fingers to fatten them up.
