ImageImageImageI started experimenting with gift paper wrap to see just how big I could make a flower. I think this is as big as could make it for now using the technique I have been using so far. But I will continue trying new ways. Enjoy

MaytinaNation Paper Dolls

ImageImageImageImageImageThis whimsical piece is totally upcycled, the towers are made out of toilet paper rolls, and one is made out of a paper towel roll. The base is made out of styrofoam packing, and the dinasour is also made out of cardboard as well as Rapunzel. I used mashed potato flakes to give it a textured look.

Upcycling: Upcycling the Clay Pot

MaytinaNation Paper Dolls

ImageJust when you think about a clay pot and how good they are to use for house plants; I think I want to re-invent it a bit. I took this pretty old clay pot and wash it. I then painted the botton a light green and the rim a bright red. It gives an old clay pot a new twist. Enjoy

Upcycling: Burlesque Paper Doll

MaytinaNation Paper Dolls

ImageThe other I saw a picture and it was about a burlesque type of show where the women wore these fancy dresses with feathers around their neck and feathers on top of their head. I decided to make a paper doll. I started with a box of cereal, a blue feather from a duster, gift wrap for her dress and some little girl’s earrings I had. Her hair is made out of plastic bag handles and the wrapping around her shoulders is made out of tissue paper. Enjoy

Upcycling: Home Made Lantern from Glass Container

MaytinaNation Paper Dolls

ImageImageImageOf course I’m always re-using and thinking what else could I make with this or that. This lantern is really a candle container from scented container. I then had this pretty but pretty ragged runner for a table. I was about to toss it out and then I said I could do something with this. I glued this otherwise fragile material on to the container and it became stronger and here it is a lantern. Enjoy

MaytinaNation Paper Dolls

ImageImageHope this flower brings a smile to everyone’s face. I made this flower out of the paper wrapping for toilet paper roll .It just happens that this paper had a smiling sun picture. I worked with the paper like all the other flowers I make. The only difference is that I made a point of having the sun’s smiling face on the outside. Enjoy

Upcycling: The Cloth Flower

MaytinaNation Paper Dolls

ImageImageThis flower is made out of bits and pieces of cloth left over from a table runner. I took the cloth and with a sewing needle gave it a shape of a flower,  I then put it on a bamboo stick and sprayed it to make the flower firm once it dries up. Enjoy
