little bowl

paper mache bowls have been on my creative to-do list for a few months, and last weekend i finally got a chance to put one together. it’s made with pages of old books, and the circles are cut from security envelopes (inspired by this post on design*sponge).

this is to be the first of many (i hope!), but i need to perfect the technique a bit. then maybe a tutorial is in order?

happy weekend!

    Lovely bowl, I’m partial to paper bowls too, and to the inside of envelopes my envelope mobile would look good above your bowl (

    Why are your bills arriving in prettier envelopes than mine? I might need to change phone companies…

    What a lovely bowl. It’s nice to see that I can still remember some of my German, too
