A Taste of the Orient

As promised, I'm doing another little giveaway tonight.  Instead of a card, I thought I'd do something a bit different.  I love the Oriental genre in cardmaking, especially as I get to indulge in some origami.  Here are some of the origami dolls I make.  They're made with authentic, handmade Japanese papers which have a rich, fabric-like texture and each colour and the gold are laid by hand.

 I sell some just as beautiful bookmarks or objects d'art, but I also like to use them as embellishments on my cards too.  By leaving a gap in the adhesion on the picture, I can attach the doll using a plastic coated paper clip and then the receiver gets a gift as well as a card!

So, whether you'd just like a beautiful, unique bookmark or you want something to add to your card, follow this page and leave a comment and one of these dolls could be winging it's way to you this week!  At 10 o'clock tonight I'm going to put the names of all those who have taken part into a hat and pick one out at random.  Check back later to see if it's you!
