Scrappy Camera Strap

While we were in New Zealand I wanted to find a camera strap with a Maori design on it. I couldn't find one anywhere. I should have gone to a fabric shop and got Maori fabric (I'm sure they had that) and made my own. Oh well. Make It and Love It found via How about Orange.

Ribbon Chairs

I love looking at wedding sites. The ideas and decor can easily be modified for a non-wedding party. I love the ribbons tied on the back of the chairs. The little paper sacks of confetti (filled with something other than confetti of course) with a custom print are so cute! The wheels are turning! Jose Villa found via Oh Happy Day.

Paper Flower Ball

These are really called Japanese Kusudama, but I knew if I put that in the title I would never find the paper flower ball tutorial when I was ready to make them. Folding Trees has a 2 part tutorial on folding the flowers and putting them together in a ball. I think they are very pretty and am thinking of all the places I could put them, in all different sizes. I'm a little intimidated by the paper folding part of it, but I think once I get through the first one it won't be bad.
