Washi



I have had a sulk this morning as my Cuttlebug Asian folders ordered from the USA have not yet arrived! Poor postie is getting used to being accosted each morning!

So whilst I am on a bit of an oriental type kick I thought I would show you this post it note holder made from Washi paper.
I just love Washi paper.... the designs and colours are rich and vibrant and it's definitely one of the most 'strokable' papers around!! (Anyone who is not a crafter/mixed media junkie will think I've completely lost my marbles talking about stroking paper, but we all do it..... and we've all got paper that's 'too nice to use'....)
So although it was a great wrench to use this beautiful fan design, I steeled myself and made this little object. The template is actually for a mirror compact but it's just the right size for post it notes!
