I’m certainly enjoying my new talents, truth be told I’m enjoying my new tools hence my new talents.
Over the past two days I’ve made the template/sample of our completed wedding invite, with RSVP envelope, an envelope gift tag, a few cards and two different styles of boxes.
The Man and I have decided I’m going to alter the tag a fraction and we’ll be using these as our Escort Cards/Place Cards at our reception. Something quirky, different but still functional. I’m actually really impressed with how quick and easy they were to make up, especially as I’m what I would still consider a beginner in the art of papercraft.
Here’s the link to the YouTube tutorial that inspired me to begin with.
This morning I also decided to learn how to make at least one different style of box, especially with Christmas just around the corner. Am thinking ahead as to which gifts can go in different boxes. Again, really quick, easy and functional. You can find the link here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqzWGlQuYBk&feature=youtu.be&a
And yesterday I posted on my Facebook page a link to make a gorgeous little box that requires no cutting at all! One of my friends made one earlier today, and sent me a picture, as well as holding me accountable to my promise to make one before the morning. I do love accountability. So, after a failed attempt with my gorgeous Kaszazz Damask paper, I reverted to using up some of my old cardstock from K-Mart and started over again. It looks amazing when finished, is certainly different and a little bit of a challenge on some of the folds, but if this beginner can do it, anyone can do it!! The link you need to make these yourself is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aTBCynHqEU&feature=youtu.be&a
Am certainly enjoying myself, and creating so many different items out of paper. Am still trying to work out a way to turn this into some pocket money for myself, but no rush.
If you attempt any of these projects yourself, please send me a picture of your completed work, then I can celebrate with you. Also, if you have any tips, hints or recommendations, please let me know as well.
