Christmas fun with Washi paper

På min "Silje's Day of fun" så vil jeg dele med dere noen av mine juleprosjekter med Washi papir - både Washi tape og Wrap. Washi tape kjenner sikkert de fleste til ; ) Wrap er Washi papir på en bred rull som da egner seg godt til innpakning og til å lage sine egne poser og konvolutter med.

On my - Silje's day of fun I'd like to share with you some of my christmas projects with Washi paper - both Washi tape and Wrap. Wrap are a much wider roll of Washi paper, with glue only on the sides of the paper, that are fun to use for wrapping presents and make your own giftbags / envelopes.

Dette er produktene jeg har brukt og de finner du bl a her!
 These are the products I've been using, you can find them here!

Denne gaveposen er laget med Wrap-papiret. Så har jeg limt på forskjellig Washi tape til pynt
og brukt litt twine til å lukke den med.

This Giftbag are made out of Wrap. I've added som Washi tape on the front and used some twine to close it. Want to make Creamy Caramels like the one in the picture?
Here's a recipe for you:

Creamy Caramels
1/2 cup cream
1/4 tbsp Vanilla extract
6tbsp Butter
1-1/3 Cups light brown sugar

1. Prepare a small (6x6 inch) square pan, spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Combine the sugar, cream, butter, vanilla, and 1 tbs water in a medium
heavy-bottomed saucepan. Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the butter is melted.
3. Bring to boil and cover for 3 minutes.
4. Uncover, but do not stir! Continue boiling until a candy thermometer reads 250 degrees.
5. Pour the caramel into the prepared pan and let it cool down.
6. When it is still slightly wet, score the top into squares, and then leave to harden completely.
7. Cut into pieces and wrap individually in waxed paper or cling wrap. Candies can be store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.

Stjernen på pakken har jeg brettet selv. Den er brettet av papir fra et Interiør magasin og deretter blitt sprayet med gullspray. Har du lyst til å prøve å brette dine egen stjerne kan du ta en titt på denne her!

The star I have folded out of paper from an interior magazine. When it was finished I added gold colour spray to it. If you like to make your own star, you can take a look at this one!

Ønsker alle en riktig herlig førjulstid!
Nyt tiden og vær sammen med de du er glad i!

Have a wonderful december!
Enjoy the holidays and spend time with the ones you love!

Hi Gail, the strips on my star are 1cm (0,4 inches) wide and ca 29cm long... The wider you cut the strips, the longer paper you need. Good luck with the star! They're fun to make!
