Valentine's Day is one more opportunity during the year to celebrate the people we love: lovers, friends, parents, brothers and sisters... In this new article, I wanted to introduce you to a few quick and simple tutorials to create a festive atmosphere around a good meal.
THE 6 TUTORIALS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY
Here are the six creative ideas to do for Valentine's Day:
- origami cherry blossoms to compose pretty bouquets,
- small square boxes with Japanese paper lids to hold presents,
- colorful origami leaves ,
- origami hearts that you can mount on sticks to decorate a cake or use as a gift tag,
- origami hedgehogs to sprinkle on your table to create your party table,
- folding furoshiki to wrap a gift simply and ecologically.
For this DIY series, I offered you a colorful range in soft and fresh shades to bring a little color in this very gray month of February: a few touches of red, pink, coral and peach supported by blue, turquoise and gold!
For these different tutorials that you will discover below, I among other things used our new 15cm by 15cm origami pouch, “Love”! It mixes several Japanese papers in different shades of deep pink.
It was important to me, once again, that you only need a few materials, here a few squares of Japanese paper, to create pretty decorations and turn a simple dinner into a moment of celebration!
And to perfect your Valentine's Day decoration, why not compose beautiful, colorful and durable bouquets, mixing crepe and Japanese paper flowers but also dried flowers and preserved foliage?
Don’t hesitate to vary sizes, materials, textures and colors!
I hope you enjoyed these little tutorials and inspired you with some pretty colorful creations.
