paper mobiles at BYZANZ MEXICO

I had the opportunity to make these birds and flowers paper mobiles for the BYZANZ MEXICO store window. BYZANZ is a designer textiles shop located in the German Design Center in the Polanco area in Mexico DF, its manager, my Colombian friend Gisela Cristancho, wanted something fun and colorful for the summer time and together we came up with this idea. The place is worth visiting not only for its gorgeous fabrics and accessories but the beautiful house where it is located, Emilio Castelar 135, just in front of Lincoln Park.

Recycling Calendar Pictures

Every year for the last five years, my dear friend and Colombian photographer Lorenita, -Claudia Lorena Hoyos- makes a calendar for Tecnoquímicas, -a pharmaceutical Colombian Company- I am amongst the lucky ones to get a copy of it every time. All the calendar pictures that are published everywhere, are usually so beautiful, that I think, that it is a shame to throw them away, when the months are over, so, I have decided that this year, I am going to make an easy paper craft with Lorenita's beautiful photos, which consists, in turning them into little gift boxes, which are perfect for packaging small things like jewelry, or candies, or maybe a small homemade cookie. For those who cherish old calendar pictures and would like to make their own cute boxes, Just click and drag to the desktop, the template picture that is below this text, and print several copies of it. Frame by frame instructions are here.

Cada año en los últimos cinco años, mi querida amiga y fotógrafa Colombiana Lorenita (Claudia Lorena Hoyos), realiza un calendario para Tecnoquímicas (una compañía farmacéutica Colombiana) Yo tengo la suerte de estar entre los que reciben una copia del calendario cada vez. Las fotos de todos los calendarios que se publican en todas partes, son casi siempre tan bonitas, que pienso que es una lástima botarlas cuando los meses han pasado, entonces he decidido que este año, voy a usar las lindas fotos de Lorenita, para hacer algo muy fácil con ellas, que consiste en convertirlas en cajitas para regalo, las cuales son perfectas para empacar cosas pequeñas como joyas, o dulces, o a lo mejor una galletica hecha en la casa. Para aquellos que aprecian las fotos de los calendarios viejos y quieran hacer estas cajitas, solo hay que hacer click y arrastrar a la pantalla del computador, la foto de la plantilla que he anexado debajo de este texto, e imprimir varias copias. Las instruciones paso a paso están aquí.
