Today's bonus project from The Spoonflower Handbook comes for our friend Kelly (Weaving Major on the site). Take a peek at how she creates ammonite wallpaper, a small and large version, to cover custom cardboard boxes–perfect for organizing all your sewing notions and bits and bobs!
I love star and spiral shapes, and I'm always fascinated that there are so many different examples of both in nature. Starfish, petoskey stones, flowers, and the cross-sections of apples all have star shapes, and spirals show up in everything from galaxies to swirling water to the ammonite fossils that inspired these wallpaper designs. The spirals I usually draw have all the lines the same distance apart, but when I was looking at a photo of ammonites one day, I noticed that as the spiral got larger, so did the space between the lines. That made me want to get out my markers and see how it looked to draw spirals that way. You can do so many fun things with this wallpaper design, including making this easy gift box.
