You can see the step-by-step instructions herea.

It took me a long time to decide on this design, and I rejected several attempts before I settled on this one. I wanted something more open and lacey, but I still wanted to keep it somewhat simple.

My elder daughter is going to be adding colour to these for me. I asked her to avoid getting the paper too while painting, as the paper will buckle and warp as it dries. She's thinking that using her inks instead of watercolours might do the trick. I'll post the final result after she's done with them.
