Happy 2015!

January 1st seemed a good time to start blogging again.  The last month I have been learning to make IQ Lamp shades.  Then are really beautiful.  Instead of plastic I used thick parchment paper that I have had leftover from a printing job 20 years ago!

IQ Lamp made with 30 pieces.

These can be difficult making the lamp and I would recommend buying the kit.  The kits come in a lot of colors, shapes and sizes.  The reason I recommend the kits is because the pieces interlock and it is difficult it get them right hand cutting.  Another reason is the thickness of the paper you use makes a difference.  Here is a link to the IQ lamp shop.

If you would still like to do it yourself here is a link to a video on how to make an IQ lamp.

Here is a link to a template

I hope this inspires others to craft.
