WHAT HAPPENED THIS WEEK : Diamond Ornaments, Craft Fails + Post Wrap Up

I had to send an embarrassing email to an editor this week. The project I was working on turned into a complete disaster, and it was time to call it. My vision of a tree filled with glittery origami shaped ornaments instead turned me into a sad crafter covered in paper cuts and double sided tape. Glitter paper had won the round.

The cutting and folding continued, this time using a template from our diamond pinata necklace. Major learning: to make origami ornaments work regular ol’ card stock is the best – anything glittery or too heavy won’t hold the shape (unless you have industrial strength tape).

      Sometimes you think, am I the only one with projects that don’t work out?! I think I could have a whole other blog of craft fails :)
