Do you have Easter traditions? Or do you change every year? One thing that I think is really cute, but don’t do anymore since my partner is allergic, is bringing in twigs of birch to decorate. But this year I have a bouquet of birch twigs at the studio. I wanted to make some new decorations and decided to do paper feathers. I used abstract art that we painted a few weeks ago and digitalized the paintings. We had spring in mind while painting so they are perfect for this Easter project.
I really liked how they turned out so I made a template for you to download. It contains 8 different designs for you to use.
Make your own abstract art feathers
1. Print out the feather template. I printed on photo paper to get that extra color pop.
2. Since you can see the back of the feathers I glued another paper to the back. I used this cute crafting paper from Littlephant that I got in my goodie bag from Craftcation and some that I painted before.
3. Cut out the feathers.
4. If you want to put the feathers on top of the twigs, glue on a wire with a glue gun. When the glue is all dried, turn the wire around the twig to fasten the feather.
5. Do you want to hang the feathers instead? Make a small hole in the stem and use a string to hang the feathers
Happy Crafting! And Happy Easter

Valentine is knocking on the door and it’s time to show some love. I’m not a person of big romantic gestures. Truth to be told, I feel a bit uncomfortable in those situations. I’m more a show-your-love-with-actions kind of a girl. So sending a card or give a small gift is more my kind of gesture. This year I’m planning to give heart-shaped shaker cards for Valentine.
This is the material I used for the Valentine's hearts
Semi-transparent tracing paper from Canson
Glitter, sequins, and pearls.
1. Print out the template with hearts, or make your own hearts.
2. Take another paper and attach to your printed one. Cut the hearts out in both papers at once.
3. Sew the hearts together, but leave an opening big enough to fill it with pearls, sequins or glitter.
4. Fill your heart and go back to the sewing machine and close the gap.
5. Done! Give the heart to someone you love.
Hope you liked it!
