*Friday Scavenger Hunt*- paper weaving

ArtsyCraftsy

This Friday's scavenger hunt was inspired by a class my stamp store is advertising. It is a type of paper weaving called "papuela". They sell templates you can use for this weaving, but I think it would not be too hard to make your own. So any paper weaving links are good- examples, projects or patterns.

on your mark, get set, go!

I like the tips on this link- especially for storing paper strips.

Here are directions for weaving a fish out of tickertape (or ribbon).

And here are instructions for making a bird with similar techniques.

enjoy.

By the way, take a look at the rest of the tapefish's site, below. Thok is a far-out nut, whom I had the pleasure of meeting in person last summer in Denmark and the spring before that in CA.

Oh yeah, and of course there's this site, which is more like origami than weaving, but incorporates weaving-like aspects...

Oh yeah and another P.S. :-)

How about just weaving quilling strips of different colors and widths to get a Madras effect?

Whoops, looks like the cool people at Fascinating Folds got there ahead of me. Figures. hehe. (see below)

That's funny, I was just at that icandream site y'day and I didn't see the one for the bird. I was going to post the fish one and the woven paper ball.

The site below has the bird I was going to post. The entire site is pretty cool!

I found the bird diagram with google. Search engines can find pages that do not have links pointing to them.

This is the first time I've seen diagrams for the bird. I saw one once about 10 years ago and learned by reverse-engineering, but it's tough to show/explain to people what I'm doing, so I'm glad someone took the time to post instructions! :-o

Artsy-C -- Thanks for the Danish sites. Really cool. I would not have described the woven heart exactly that way, but I can't offer an improvement right now. Need to think about it when I have time. -- Marie
