Re­source­ful craft­ing

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Your Letters -

My name is Jen and I am an avid card­maker for char­i­ta­ble causes. I make cards in batches so that char­i­ties can sell them in their shops or at fundrais­ing events. My most re­cent batch went to My­ton Hospice in War­wick, who did a fan­tas­tic job of look­ing af­ter my late Grandma. I’m al­ways look­ing for new ideas and ab­so­lutely loved the em­boss­ing fold­ers that came with the Septem­ber is­sue, 173. The only prob­lem is, I don’t own a die-cut­ting ma­chine – it’s on my Christ­mas list. Des­per­ate to make use of the em­boss­ing fold­ers, I had to get even more cre­ative and used a ce­ramic rolling pin and a tiled bath­room floor in­stead! As you can see, it did the trick. Many thanks for the in­spi­ra­tion, Jen Baker-Jones, via email Si­enna says: It’s fan­tas­tic to hear that you make cards for char­ity, and that you go to such lengths to cre­ate the per­fect card. Keep up the won­der­ful craft­ing!
