Merryn had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb…
Merryn had a little lamb.. 😀 Before I break glasses with my ‘out of tune’ singing, let’s start with our lamb project.
Paper Loop Lamb
Paste one end of a strip of paper to the other end; forming a loop.
Paste two cotton balls as the feet.
Cut two ears from paper and paste.
Paste some cotton balls at the back as the wool and a ribbon near the ear to make it 'pretty' 😀
This red packet seashell tree ornament is extremely easy to do. This Chinese New Year, let’s do one 🙂
Red Packet Seashell Tree Ornament
Fold the red packet in half.
Cut the folded side of the packet into strips measuring about 0.5cm each. Make sure you leave about 1 cm around the edges before you start cutting, as you are going to staple the edges together later.
Open up the folded red packet. Bring together two opposite corners and staple them together. Poke a hole through one of the ends, put a thread through it and tie a knot in the end of the thread.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Let’s make a lovely paper heart garland 🙂
Paper Heart Garland
You'll need a long strip of coloured paper.
Cut a heart shape on one end of the strip.
Fold the heart shape and fold the rest of the paper strip.
Once you are done folding, cut along the heart shape. Be careful not to cut on the sides of the heart.
Unfold it and you'll get yourself a lovely paper heart garland 🙂 You may want to use it to decorate your Valentine's Day card, notice board or basically anything! This Valentine's Day.. let the hearts flow 😀

Boot boot… Any night owl around? Let’s do this extremely simple origami owl.
Fold a square paper half.
Fold a small flip down at the top.
Fold the bottom to meet the top flip.
Your folds should be as shown above.
Fold both sides so that they meet in the middle.
Your origami owl is almost done. Draw the eyes and wings and you are done!
Oh yeah, another thing. Fold a small flip down as the beak. You won't want your owl to be beak-less! 😛
The very simple origami owl, even a two year old can do it! 🙂
This nice little paper basket can be used to place little gifts for the little ones.
Woven Heart Basket.
You'll need two different colours of papers. Fold and cut so that each piece has 3 loops.
Starting with the bottom 1/3 loop of the green piece, weave it through the first red loop, insert the second red loop through this green piece and weave this green piece through the 3rd red loop again.
Do the opposite way for the middle loop of the green piece. First weave the right red loop through this green loop, then weave this middle green loop through the middle red loop and then weave the red loop through this green loop again.
If done correctly, your basket should be able to open this way.
Using a craft scissors, cut a red strip and weave a green strip through it as the handle of the basket.
The beautiful paper heart basket.
