Inspire me NOW! – Paper Donut

Another post from across the sea… New Zealand rocks! I love it here.

You just have to check out the Paper Donut site. I love their creative minds and flawless execution. The Curious Breakfast is one of those exiting projects, it made me so happy- I thought it’ll be only fair to share it with you guys. These paper made food products are so well made and so awesome, I wouldn’t mind having such a breakfast myself…




A post all the way from New Zealand! I’ve waited some time to publish this post- Tamari* was away for a long trip abroad, and after she came back I managed to send her the card just before my own journey…

This card was made for Tamar from the lovely blog Tamari*s Place. I won her blog candy recently, and enjoyed her crafty on-line generosity and friendship. Coming back from India, I spent some time thinking about Karma – spreading good deeds and good vibes, and eventually receiving the same. Since Tamar was so very kind and open-hearted with me, I have decided to reciprecate and express my gratitude.

The card is quite thick, being the first time I’ve tried this pop-up technique. Perhaps in the future I’ll find a way to refine it… The large flower bouquet spreads like a fan when you open the card, in a rich 3 dimensional arrangement. At the foot of the bouquet there’s a tiny envelope (made from a template I got in the blog-candy bundle!), with some warm words to Tamar.

I hope it made her happy!
