What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #161

I was absent last Wednesday (sorry Ms Dunnit) because there was nothing remotely crafty happening on the kitchen table, or the ironing board. I thought this week was heading the same way until my girl came home from school, eager to teach me what she’d learnt in maths today.


How to make a hexagon or a pentagon from an A4 sheet of paper by folding only. Very clever. At school they have been making the hexagons from A5 paper and then they are going to stick all the shapes together to make a football.


These are the ATCs I made to celebrate the 3rd birthday of WOYWW. I think most of them have arrived safely and you will have seen them on a couple of other blogs anyway. Now you know why I was making woodgrain envelopes a few weeks ago. I’ll take a photo of the ones I received to share next week.

I want to know how to fold a pentagon - that's awesome!!
Um, after having read your previous posts, don't you think that a Virtual Hostess Club might bring you the wrong clientele???? Hope it doesn't!! And I love your screen printed cushion covers too - big bold graphics float my boat too :)

I have that owl punch! All ready to make Teacher cards with. I think I sorted my blog now. I'm intrigued by the hexagons but how lovely that they enjoyed a maths lesson!

Hexagons are all the rage aren't they!

Love your ATC's! The woodgrain background is just the perfect touch. :) What are you planning to do with the paper folding thing your kid learned about? Just curious...:)
