How to Make Leaf Bowls

I love nature and when I can use elements of nature in my work I love it even more. These leaf bowls are a great example. They are made using red bud leaves and wild grape leaves from our property. Watch the 15 minute demo video for what I have found works for me and I hope it gives you inspiration to make your own nature inspired pieces. Thanks bunches for taking the time to have a look. Feel free to post, pin, tweet, share :)

The Court Jester

***SOLD*** The Court Jester is #4 in my Santos Cage Doll and art doll series. She is laser cut from eco-friendly 3mm wood fiberboard by PaperWhimsy. She stands approx 9-1/2" tall. Her arms are movable and she holds a curious collection in her box including a small white moth in her glass jar. The beads are glass and hold many curiosities themselves. The metal key and butterfly are a reminder that transformation is the key to growth and discovery. Take the time to 'see' the magic in the details around you.

I used wood, faux gems, napkins, paper flower, metal, glass, and brads for the arms.




You can order the blank kit at PaperWhimsy I used for this cage doll. Also these are made to order and can take 14-21 business days.

Thanks bunches for taking the time to have a look. Feel free to post, pin, tweet, share :)
