Wrapping up Robot Week, I have to say I had lots of fun! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, check out my last few post to see some robotic paper projects. For the last project of this festive week I made this bookmark, decorated with a little robot on top. I used the “White Days” paper collection, you can read more about it here.
This week we celebrate Purim here in Israel, and if you know me, you know it’s a very big deal! Have a look at my last year’s costume (:
Have a great week and happy Purim!

It’s been quite dark and stormy here in Israel today, so I made something that will surely make you feel warm inside!
This little cubic-cute robot is decorated with the “White Days” paper collection, you can check it out here.
As some of you already know, I’m celebrating Robots Week this week (which isn’t a real holiday or trend or anything, just something I made up as an excuse for making lots of paper robots…). I’m using the beautiful new paper kit “White Days” by Tsruya, as shown on my last post.
Do you remember the Tetris mania back in the 90′s? Everybody was playing, ALL the time. So, here is my robo-tribute for my teen years
Hope you like it
It’s here! Robot Week! Are you as excited as I am? (Probably not, but that’s OK )
First and foremost, let me tell you about the patterned paper I’ve used in all of the robocraft projects I’m going to present this week:
This is a paper kit named “White Days”, created and sold by the very talented Tsruya Ilan. It’s a collection of 15×15 cm double-sided designer paper, in soft shades of grey and the perfect hue of turquoise. This is Tsruya’s sixth paper collection and will be available for purchase starting this Friday (details will follow).
Sooo… Wanna have a peek? Here it is – White Days paper kit:
And here it is spread on my table before working on it:
If you can read Hebrew, you should definitely check out Tsruya’s blog.
You really have to see it in person – there is something very soft and flowing, both color and pattern, which in my opinion, makes this collection simply excellent. I was very happy and proud that Tsruya shared it with me before it’s been launched, and even happier when I saw just how lovely it is!
The first thing that crossed my mind when I saw the paper kit for the first time was “WEDDINGS”, it’s delicate and sophisticated and will suite a wedding album or card very well. BUT – I felt like making something different (and honestly – the collection is so versatile – it wasn’t really a challenge…). So Robot Week was born! I used it in all the robotic wonders you’ll see here this week, sometimes as patterned accents, sometimes as the base of the entire project.
As for this card – I love how the hugging robot came out. Is is relatively large and has a funny expression, who wouldn’t want a hug from that?!
Have a great (Robot) week, make something new
