Joined Heart #033 Valentine 2014

   This Joined Valentine Heart illustrates two principles 1) a joined heart may be joined about a point anywhere in the surface of the heart and 2) you may overcome the difficulty of having sections outside the heart shape by gluing together the two pieces of a heart part before joining.   The heart is…

Joined Heart #032 Squares & Triangles

    When I visited Rome last week I noticed a palazzo at Piazza dei Calcarari. The lower part of the façade is most impressive. It is made from large square and triangle shaped ashlars. Having just received Joined Heart Crystal from Anna it was predestined for further development. The new heart is made in…

Joined Heart #031 Crystal

This multi joined crystal heart is designed by Anna. It is made from shaped strips joined to form the triangles. It is quite fast, when you figure out the principle. Choose the two colours (blue and red on the small pictures) you prefer and cut out the pieces of the two Pages (Page 1 =…

Sugar Scull #01 and #02

We have had fun making Sugar Sculls. We made one each. They are made just like the joined heart baskets, each side made from two layers. We refrained from metallic paper, glitter glue and rhinestones, but that is definitely an option. The individual chain parts are made from two identical pieces. Making them is easiest…

joined 028 pattern 3

Joined Heart #028 Valentine

Joined Heart #028 is made like the previous joined baskets with four layers. Cut out, pair the layers two by two matching the slits, fix each set of matching parts temporarily with paper clips, and join little by little. Add handles. This heart, however, has the extra feature that you draw forward the three small…

Joined Basket #027 Dragonfly

The Joined Dragonfly is made from two parts in different colours – just like the simple joined baskets described at the page ‘Joined’. I chose gold as the one colour. But the paper had a white rear side, which I did not want. Thus I cut an extra orange part after the same pattern. This…

Joined 026 pattern

Joined Heart #026

This Joined Heart #026 is difficult to cut out by hand but very simple to put together. You need the two different heart pieces on the pattern to make the basket. Cut out the pieces in the two colours you like – if you have a cutting machine, cutting the sheet twice will give you…

Joined Heart #025

This Joined Heart #025 with an elaborate double bow is made using the same principles as explained for Joined Heart #024. It is made from 4 parts. They are time consuming to cut out by hand, but rather easy to assemble. The heart is somewhat surrealistic, as the inner bow shall pass through the outer bow.…

Bow Heart

Joined Basket #024 Bow Heart

This Bow Heart or Joined Basket #024 designed by Anna is very simple to make. Cut out the pieces in the two colours you like. Crease. Join the heart in the same way as you would make any other simple joined basket – you may go to the Page ‘Joined’ for directions – line up…

joined-023b

Joined Basket #023

This basket is made from two individual joined baskets. Each made from four pieces. One basket is dumped into the other. And then there is a small heart dumped into the inner basket to form the point. The baskets are probably a bit over the top if you do not have a cutting machine and…
