Papercraft Inspirations - - DIE-CUTTING -

Sue Cass

Q Tell us about your lovely apron card!

A I cut the card blank to shape and cov­ered with pat­terned pa­per, then added a con­tin­u­ous piece of rib­bon to make ties and neck straps, adding die-cut shapes to fin­ish. This one is quite nos­tal­gic as I also in­cluded an old recipe, and trimmed it with lace!

Q Do you have any other ideas that you think would work for your de­sign?

A This recipe apron would work well on a journal page along­side pho­tos of home­made ap­ple pie!

Q How did you cre­ate your card?

A I splashed gold and bronze paint onto my back­ing panel, dis­tressed the edges with brown ink and die cut two toaster aper­tures. I then se­cured ac­etate be­hind the toaster aper­tures to cre­ate two mini shaker el­e­ments! Q What is your top tip for this make?

A If you don’t have any ac­etate, use clear pack­ag­ing, it re­ally works! Draw funny ex­pres­sions or write short mes­sages on the slices of bread and use blend­ing mark­ers to achieve a pro­fes­sional ef­fect with your colour­ing.
