When Alice asked if I'd like to work up a tutorial for her blog, I knew I wanted to have another shot at one of the techniques used in Paperie. You might not be able to tell what the technique is at first glance, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I don't necessarily think you'd look at the finished stool and think it was a papercraft project, and that small element of surprise - one of the not-so-obvious things you can do with paper - is all kinds of satisfying, for me at least.
You can find a full set of instructions over at Alice's blog if you want to try making something similar yourself. The idea would work just as well applied to a simple block-canvas (hello, cheap-but-awesome wall art!) if you don't have a piece of furniture in need of a Marimekko makeover. Or, if you're feeling really bold, I can't help thinking it would look pretty spectacular applied to a plain white fridge or washing machine, too.
