I love the vibrant geometric textured feel.
It is made from individual folded squares of recycled paper, and strung together abacus-like to form a tree.
Here is a Pictorial to make up the squares. I used painted book paper squares for the tree, but I am using plain book paper to show the technique I used.
Each string was knotted around the paper rod. Colourful tissue paper squares were inserted inside some of the shapes.
Next I’ll tell you about painting the book paper and the pattern I randomly printed on some of the squares.
The paint layer softens and almost hides the underlying print and gives the paper a lovely firm handle.
