I searched 'Parisian chic' and bumped into this full house blog.
Here's the full house blog tutorial for making newspaper mirrored sunbursts. Lovely.
I also searched tutorials on ruffle pillows and found this ruffled pillow tutorial. I used it to make a pillow for my sister recently and it was pretty simple. The nice thing about working with ruffles is that they don't have to be perfect to be pretty.
