Jul.Christmas.Noel -  Golden Doves


Golden Doves


What’s Christmas without doves? 

They appear in Christmas carols (well, at least one), on cards,

and of course, on my side table.

The template I used comes

from a STUNNING Japanese book I recently bought.

It oozes fabulousness.

Think Scandinavian Modern Design meets Japanese

paper folding genius.


It’s THAT cool!

But as you know,

COOL doesn’t come naturally to me.

I am more of a bish bosh that will do

kind of a person.

Despite this, I thought I would make the doves.


And, glam them up a little for that

Jul time feeling.

Coo Hoo!

They actually turned out alright,


I can’t help wonder if they would look trendier

made with black glitter card.


(Are there are classes on

how to be cool?)

 The book in question is called

‘Too cool for Heidi’

& it’s isbn is



b.t.w.  if my husband asks,

I was GIVEN this book by a friend.

Ages ago.
