Photo Collage Maker

Here is quite a cool free Automatic Photo Collage Maker that produces shape collages out of your favorite pics! 
You can use a standard shape to turn your collage into, or draw your own custom shape. 
Customise the background with any colour or add an image of your own.
Here is a quick sample I whipped up in a few minutes. 
I could even drag and drop images out of iPhoto. 
The quality is high enough to print out at a photo lab onto photo archive paper - even use as a poster to decorate a room!
If you upgrade to pay version, you don't have to look at the darn watermark (which sometimes moves to the bottom of the design but wouldn't for me today!)
Give it a try, its really an amazing and well thought out little application that is a lot of fun!

Origami butterfies

Check out these gorgeous origami butterflies.  They would look great made from coloured wrapping paper, double sided scrapbooking paper or any type of paper that takes your fancy!
How about using your newborns wrapping paper saved from all of those gorgeous pressies?!
They look great on walls or made into a mobile to hang above babe's cot.
Even make them out of paint swatches for a nice tonal effect!
Try following these instructions I found off YouTube: origami butterfly video
