MHK Designer Inspiration : Rocky


     How about using the gorgeous Egg-cellent Easter papers to make a cute egg holding bunny?

     On the right of this picture is the paper you will get in this set, on the left is the paper I got after a little hiccup with my printer (the red ran out). I wanted to show you this to highlight the fact that a small error in colour can actually result in a rather gorgeous paper. It also shows that by playing around with your printer's colour settings you can really make amazing use of all the paper sets.
 
     As this little bunny shows both sides of the paper I printed the back of it with the same pattern but chose to use black ink only, giving me a lovely selection of grey bunnies.
     The origami pattern for this bunny can be found as a tutorial on You Tube as Rabbit Lantern, it holds a standard size hens egg nestled on a bed of crumpled tissue.
 
      I love origami but have found special papers can be rather expensive, by printing your own on to 120gsm paper using MHK Designs paper sets you can fold to your hearts content. Need double sided papers?...No problem, print one side, turn it over, make sure it's the right way up and print again with the same pattern or something different.
 
      I do hope you will try out the paper sets, there is so much you can do with them as well as  compliment MHK Designs stamp sets. Don't forget our current challenge is still running so you can join in the fun and be in with a chance to win a stamp set AND a paper set.
