Paper roses DIY & Happy Mother’s Day!

Paper roses: In this tutorial i will help you to make realistic paper roses in a very simple way!  This is a cheap solution to make a flower bouquet with your imagination . My idea is to use paper roses to decorate a card for the upcoming Mother’s day . Your mom will for sure appreciate it 🙂

May is the month of the year i prefer the most for several reasons.

  • I was born the 8th of May, this is why i feel very comfortable with this period
  • there are many different flowers in the fields
  • the sky i turns into a deep and warm blue
  • I usually start to go for long walkings to the beach
  • I used to eat at least one ice-cream at week!

There is also a nice coincidence, in several places in the world the 8th of May is usually know as the “Mother’s day” and roses are the best known flowers of this period!

3) Start to roll tightly from the end of the shape going inside.  Is even more easy to make them then to explain it with words, so please take a minute and try to make one.

Free Carnival postcard & mask – Free postcard n.2

I’m happy to share with you  a diy “Carnival postcard”: a paper postcard that can be used as a mask too

The key words of this blog post are: Carnival + DIY + postcard + art therapy, such a great mix of ideas!

(ps. This is the second FREE POSTCARD i made, if you missed the first one…have a look to this page.)

The Carnival-postcard-mask was a present for my super friend Irene. The drawing for the postcard was inspired by her and the gorgeous city where she lives: Barcelona. Irene is an enthusiastic architect, i think she’ll enjoy the idea that she can color herself the postcard-mask.

Download for free the Carnival Mask i made for my friend Irene – here – .

The idea, the project and the drawing is a “Do it Juicy” original idea, inspired by “art therapy”.

I’m a proud supporter of the power of colors and pencils, drawing help my to be concentrated and has a therapeutic power.

(WIKI …  Adult coloring books help with developing fine motor skills and vision, reducing anxiety and creating focus, and relieving stress and anxiety in a manner similar to meditation.[19] Concentrating on coloring may facilitate the replacement of negative thoughts and images with pleasant ones….) 

The “Carnival-postcard-mask” has a double use:

  • you can choose to write-colour-and send it to a fried
  • or you can just made your own carnival mask…HOW?

Just follow the following instructions, but first download here the FREE TEMPLATE
