Make a paper bamboo plant

Friday night while my hubby was away on business, I was home alone feeling introverted. So I watched Will and Grace reruns and cut out paper pieces to make this lucky bamboo plant. It's from Epson's Hong Kong site, which I found via Paper Forest. I like how it turned out. I think it's cute and funny, the same way I think our fake fireplace video is funny. I'm a nerd. Oh, and if you decide to download the PDF, don't be daunted when you discover that the instructions are in Chinese. You won't need them.

Definitely not nerdy. Or if it is, count me in the nerd club. I'm printing out the cactus right now. My desk needed just the thing.

The cactus with the hat is a hoot. I really like the bottom one tho.

I know--I love that one, too. Deciding which one to make was tough call. Maybe I'll do that one sometime.

Sweet! It's Saturday night & fiancee is off to poker. I'm totally fashioning up the bamboo. It's perfect b/c I am not allowed to bring my own plants in to work (what?!) so this is going on my desk. Thanks!!!

You know, I think I bought that in North Dakota a few years back; the instructions said "Place on ground, light fuse, stand back at least 100 feet".

Definitely Made In China, too.

Very funny.

Huh. Maybe my next project will be paper dynamite. Could be cool....

i just made this today for a house-warming gift for a friend -- what a fun little project! i'm having a hard time just LEAVING IT ALONE while the glue dries... so the paper keeps getting more and more wrinkly...

next time i'll be sure to use cardstock =)
