About this Blog

Doing an illustration for my other blog, I had a very frustrating experience with new quality drawing paper which got me thinking and indeed resulted in a flood of ideas, what can be done with the 99 sheets of paper that are still left from the block. So I decided to install a whole new blog to show you the results. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I like to create the projects.

The sheets of paper I am working with are size A4 (21 x 29.7 mm), 185 g/m².

Prince Crown

On carnival not only girls want to be a character from a fairy tale: here comes the crown for your little prince.

Prince Crown How To:

Material: 1 sheet of white paper
                small pieces of cellophane
                oil pastels
                glue stick
                adhesive tape
                double-faced adhesive tape
                glitter hairspray

  • Make a pattern for the crown or feel free to order it here. Cut out carefully.
  • Fold the rim in halve and glue together.
  • Spray thoroughly with glitter hairspray.
  • Glue the ends of the rim together, overlapping.
  • For the gems cover small pieces from the cut-off paper with red oil pastel for a ruby and blue for a sapphire. Rumple and smooth again and then paint over the creases in darker shades of red and blue. Cut out circles a bit smaller than in the crown.
  • To let the 'gems' be more 3D you can rumple small pieces from the cut-off paper and fix it on the back.
  • Rumple small pieces of cellophane and cover the front of the gem, gluing them to the back with tiny pieces of tape.
  • Put some double-faced adhesive tape onto the back of the gems and fix them on the crown, alternating the colours.
Carnival aside, how about throwing a motto party for princes and princesses? You might give every guest a crown as a welcome gift. Or, using the templates, you might let them do their personal (simpler) versions of crowns by decorating and painting them alone.
