I’m really enjoying ‘wonkiness’ at the moment. I think it’s a reaction to having so many Apple products in my life – an iPhone, an iPad, a MacBook Pro – they are all exquisitely designed, but perhaps a bit too perfect. Instead, I’ve found myself rejoicing in flaws – I was even recently heard saying that it was OK that my kids had drawn on the dining room table because it gave it the ‘worn look’!
Now, of course, there’s a fine line between what’s rustic, and what’s bad workmanship, so I hope I’ve got the balance right with these ‘wonky’ cut out paper dice. They were all created freehand, without rulers, and therefore have lots of gaps and cracks, they are even assembled crudely using sticky tape. The idea came from having to quickly make a paper dice for my son – I used the same technique described below, and found the finished result to be quite charming.
