delicate foliage

This year my friend and I decided to swap some handmade gifts for Christmas. I have known her for about 26 years (and I am 26) so I feel like I have a good handle on what she likes. I decided to go with some of my own paper art since the last time I made her something was way back in high school. I don’t have any pictures of the finished product as I need to get some windex and clean up the frame… but here are a few snap shops of the process! I found some gorgeous handmade paper at the art store and although I don’t usually use this type of paper, it ended up being the perfect fit for the job.

Hopefully everyone out there is having great success at their own handmade gift making!
