I didn't really know where to put this, but I figured this was more appropriate in the "More Art Less, Craft Area."  After seeing  Trekky's Ribbon woven QR code http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386599.0 I wanted to see if I could alter QR codes with color. I haven't really looked into QR codes before. I've seen them around, but I never really knew what they were.

Anyway, I decided to test them out with my iphone with the Redlaser and i-nigma apps. I think they work and when I print them out them seem to work as well.

Hope you guys like them, comments are always appreciated from fellow crafters!

Here's the first one I made in two different color themes. I like them both so it's hard to pick a favorite.

Then I decided to make a panda one

Then I decided to make a second dog one, this one leads to my blog

I'm pleasantly surprised they still work. It'll make QR codes a lot more exciting from now on!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thanks Antidigger! The only drawback I can foresee is perhaps the colors printing out and not giving enough contrast. Which is why I'm probably going to print them myself on stickers and test them.  This way it's better to have a small batch rather than shell out for them to be printed on business cards and not work...at least for now.

There's a couple designs that I think will work regardless, like the panda one and the Dalmatian with the green background.

Nice job. My favorite is the panda. You know they would be great was a wallpaper.

Thanks adelestlg! I have the panda as my wallpaper now! I also printed some out on a larger scale and my husband has them up on his office as art.

I made some business cards with the panda QR code!

They are brilliant.  I love the dalmation!

It is amazing that they work with different colours.  It is quite interesting to see how much you can manipulate the QR code and for it still to work.


I have lots of train tickets (I get the train most days), if anyone wants some for papercrafting just send me a PM Smiley

Thanks Trekky! It was a little tricky at first manipulating the colors and thinking outside of the box. I'm looking forward to doing more, I downloaded 4 different QR code apps to test them as I go along.
