For the extreme DIY'er

Here's a DIY project to make a paper chandelier...


http://www.craftstylish.com/item/26379/extreme-paper-the-long-dark-road-to-a-bright-idea


Here s a DIY photo 2156574-1


If any of you actually get brave enough to take on this project let me know!  I'm sure it would look pretty good especially at a reception where there was low lighting...people probaly wouldn't be able to tell that it wasn't the real thing!

Hmmm, that is really pretty. I have been throwing around the idea of making a crystal chandelier but I don't know if I will get the chance with everything else I need to make.

okay girls, so I'm trying to do this.


Just seconds ago I finished my templates in Illustrator and printed them. Tonight after work, I'm going to start with cutting. I'm going to document my progress in my bio and post the finished product here.


Wish me luck and patience :D

"All told, this piece ended up having more than 765 discrete components, 10 feet of dental floss, 15 glue sticks, 6 ounces of white craft glue, and weeks of my time and effort." This is what the inventor writes.
