Project 5: Done! and Lessons learnedFebruary 4, 2011
I am pleased with how this Moravian star came together. It really wasn’t all that complicated — it just had a lot of pieces. While the glue dries on the last few points I’ll reflect on my lessons learned.
– Don’t underestimate the power of glue plus time.
– Even the projects that seem complicated can be tackled one step at a time.
– It’s ok to take a minute to step back and recover from failure if it means gaining the confidence to get going again.
– I wish I were more creative. Wouldn’t it have been more awesome to be assembling a paper object of my own design?
If you would like to find papercraft designs on the internet here are a few places to look:
Jessica Jones at How About Orange features paper crafts frequently. I found the paper calendar there.
Design Sponge is a neat place to visit for a range of topics in the world of design. They feature paper diy crafts and other paper art from time to time. I found the Moravian Star there.
Everything at Instructables is awesome, and lucky for us they have a paper category.
Pepakura Designer is the grandaddy of all pepakura sites. It may take a little browsing to find something you like, but it has a wealth of resources.
Next week: I haven’t decided between a crochet project or something for Valentine’s Day. I’ll think about it over the weekend. See you Monday!
