1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / How to make a pleated star (or any shape) on: June 18, 2015 03:14:18 PM

There's a bit of reinventing the wheel to this project, but it was a result of my personal desire to figure out how to translate any shape into a pleated shape.
For my first attempts I made a heart and a star.  These two are about 3 inches across.

I also made tiny stars.

Easy to hand cut (there is a lot of scoring--but I did think to set the scores 1/4" apart which works well on a scoring board), or machine cut.  

Templates and tutorials for the heart and star here:

Aw, I was just trying to remember what these looked like and I realized I had them posted on Craftster.  Kids are all grown up!

Me too!  I spent a long time sifting through my paper bins trying to pull things that went together!

I have sort of a thing about conversation hearts.  Not the candy--that's chalky.  But I like the shape and the simple lettering on them.

Here is a valentine pop up card that I designed with conversation hearts in various colors.

Cutting file available in multiple formats including SVG, DXF, and Silhouette Studio.

This is the back.

It does fold flat for mailing.

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Vintage Dollhouse Inspired Paper Houses on: November 13, 2014 02:09:26 PM
I am not a doll collector, but I somehow found myself looking at a photostream of vintage dollhouses.  I particularly liked those made by Rich and Keystone.  These are miniature models I made from photos.  So far I've made two.

Cut out and glue together.  Easy!

I was delighted with how fast and easy it was.  We had a lot of snowdays in the last couple weeks, so that helped!

I asked my friend who DOES know how to crochet to make this for me and she said, "Make it yourself!" Well okay, then.  I do know how to knit a little, and I can sew, so that helped.  
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Flower Wreath on: February 21, 2014 07:38:49 AM

Colors are a little over-saturated, here.  See flowers below.

My first crocheted project!

I was inspired by Attic24.

I used flowers, buttons, and satin ribbon.

The yarn is Lion bonbons brights. I used only 1 package of this yarn!  The wreath form is a 12" wire form.  I knitted a cover from some scrap yarn I already had.

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Conversation Heart Circle Card on: February 09, 2014 05:31:43 PM

This Valentine card collapses flat.  When the card is open the ribbons tie together to form the circle of hearts.
