Teddy was made by Lene for Anna many years ago. At that time he was yellow to look like “Bamse” from Danish television. Later a little girl Zoey from Holland said she would love him better if he was pink. And all his clothes should be pink too…
The woven paper heart (flettet julehjerte) is a Danish Christmas tradition. We strive to renew the Christmas Heart, integrating the entire shape into the woven part of the heart. We intend mainly to upload hearts of our own invention. We do not copy but find inspiration where possible. We hope that the hearts will likewise serve as an inspiration to you.
The joined hearts and baskets are easy to make. We have designed some very simple and some in many layers of different colours requiring quite a lot of cutting out.
We also work to revive the tradition of the woven paper cone (flettet kræmmerhus). The cones are made using traditional basketry techniques combined with what we have learned from constructing paper hearts.
Then we figured out how to make a woven closed form.
And the Balloons!
When Anna was 4 years old Lene made her a puppet theatre. Lately Anna suggested to make a small printable paper theatre. Here new ideas could be tried out. And why not share them with you?
