These bowls and pen holder are made with the same technique I used for this project: Paper Candle Holder.
Once you know how to make rolls with paper, you can create whatever you want with them!
I believe this is a great way to upcycle newspapers and magazines that you don't need anymore :)
I love how these look - so unique! Do they take long to make? : )
I'm so glad you like them! <br>The longest part is preparing the paper and making the rolls one by one. I am not sure exactly how long it takes because I used to make many all at once so that I could use them for many different projects...I am pretty sure that you can make them in an afternoon! Then gluing them together to compose the bowl is much faster! :)
j'adore bravo !
Merci beaucoup!
love them all..and will try this soon..:)
Thank you for your kind comments and also, thank you for following me! :D I would really love to see your paper bowl once you have tried it! Have fun!! :)
Very cute! I love the colored one, did you use colored paper or color it after you rolled it? You should also enter this into the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/contest/holidaygifts2012">Holiday Gifts Contest</a>!
I will, thank you!! For the colored one, I colored each roll before I glued them together...these are the first ones I made and I didn't even have acrylic paint so I used watercolors lol
I like the look with the watercolors :) Much better than if they were just block colors.
I am glad you like it! :) You may need to put transparent varnish on it because watercolors tend to be very matt and dry.
I like both of them! thanks for sharing! Have a great day! <br>sunshiine
Thank you! Have a great day too!! :)
This is beautiful! love the colored one. :)
Thank you so much! :)
