Grazy bunny magnets!

It's fun to put postcards from friends and children's drawings on the fridge door, but after a while the door is a bit too full of everything you once thought would be nice there. At least that's what happened to me. So I took everything down and noticed my magnets which had been in use for years now. Designing new magnets felt a good idea and that's what I did :)

Coaster

Long story short, I needed a coaster and made one :)

Paper and plastic

What's a result if you combine a magazine from the 1950's, some pvc plastic, fabric and buttons from an old French military tent? A small bag and a pouch maybe?

I've sometimes wondered if you could use paper in a way, that the end result would be something usable and durable. And of course to do all this homemade, with limited resources. I sewed a bag and a pouch which both made out to be quite a success in my opinion. Now I just have to use them and test if they really are durable enough.

Farewell card

This is a farewell card that I designed for a friend who left Finland. And yes, her name begins with a letter "C". I've also designed a few birthday cards during the summer, but unfortunately it didn't come to my mind to take pictures...

Plant labels

I planted some basil, strawberry, paprika and chili seeds a few months ago. I've never planted anything from a seed so it was exciting to wait my plants to grow, and they did! I was so happy :) Small paprika and chili plants look very much alike, so I had to label the plants somehow. I bought some cheap terra cotta flowerpots and painted them white with acrylics. Since they turned out to be fine I also designed plant labels for them. Now I just have to wait my little ones to grow. I'm guessing I won't be able to harvest them this summer, because they look so tiny. But, you never know.

Johnny Le Mon

The summer has finally arrived to Finland and it inspired me to design Johnny Le Mon. He's a third addition to my newest paper toy series.

A box like milk carton

I've had this design in my sketch book for a while. It's a box that opens up like a milk carton and is a perfect box for storing small items! The bottom of the box is 9 x 9 cm in size and the height is about 11 cm.
