Papercraft Inspirations

We did it!

Take a look at our reader testers’ makes this month!

-

Diane Williams Q What an adorable pooch! Tell us about your lovely card.

A

I wanted to make a photo card that I could display all year round. So, I made a simple 6x6in easel card and matching drawer, then mounted the card on top. The calendar acts as the stopper for the easel. This card is a useful desk tidy and date reminder, as well as a wonderful memory of my old dog, Hugo.

Q What is your top tip for using photos in your makes?

A Don’t be afraid to add embellishm­ents onto your photo, it adds interest! Sue Cass Q You’re one of our original Reader Testers, thank you for a decade worth of cards!

A I can’t believe we’re on issue 200! For this project, I made simple sliding pop-ups – super effective, and they fold flat for posting.

Q A picture paints a thousand words... A

It’s so easy to leave photos on our phones nowadays, so I make mini books for my family from special events and visits. My grandchild­ren get a birthday book full of photos as a reminder of their past year. Even from a young age they have loved looking through these books and treasure them.

Lore Green Q What was your inspiratio­n for this project?

A

I loved the idea of doing mini scrapbook-style layouts for this project, and putting the photograph­s on the front of the card. It’s a great way to share memories and give someone a personal card that they can keep, or even add to a scrapbook of their own!

Q Tell us about your poppy card! A

I added an extra interactiv­e element to the poppy card – a sequin shaker in front of the photograph! I used a Sheena Douglass stamp, which I fussy cut using a craft knife to get around the fine details.
