I saw these bowls in the April 17, 2010 issue of Woman's Day - and they offer the instructions online. I think they're really cute - and would be a fun summer project for the kids - or darling handmade Easter "baskets".

The project is from the book "Home, Paper, Scissors: Decorative Paper Accessories for the Home" by Patricia Zapata. It's available from for $13.57.

For those who are interested in being green - the more than 30 projects in the book use recycled paper.

Patricia Zapata sells her paper goods online at and you can see some of her work here. She also has a blog: CraftySynergy.

In her blog, she interviews/showcases the work of other artists - some of which can be found on There are a lot of lovely pictures of their work, as well as links to their websites, and their contact information.
