11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Quickest Shamrock Pop Up Card Ever on: March 04, 2012 06:07:09 AM

A few folds and cuts to make the shamrocks, and then refold the paper into a (standard origami fold) square fold.  A spot of glue and you're done!  I ran around the edges of mine with a glue pen and sprinkled on some glitter.

I used a 4" square for the shamrock. 

The completed card is only 2.25" square, so it's a nice surprise when the shamrock pops out to full size.

12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Cut Lantern Happy Birthday on: January 27, 2012 11:10:55 AM
Tealight lantern for machine cutting.  Easy to assemble (after cutting).  It's just tabbed and slotted together and the top tied with a ribbon.  The bottom is mostly open to make it easy to take the tealight in and out.

Credit for the window shape and birds goes to Cindy, from http://papercutting.blogspot.com/2010/11/template-tuesday-hanukkah.html.  
I found the flower motif at https://picasaweb.google.com/108292124932450556338/Wycinanki#.

You can swap out the "Happy Birthday" panel with another flowered panel if you don't want to use it for a birthday card.

13  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Space Invader Spider Woven Card on: December 21, 2011 05:37:19 AM

This is a Froebel weaving of a Space Invader design I saw at http://boredgamergirl.wordpress.com/2010/12/24/video-game-christmas-cards/.

You cut the slit pattern into a base card and weave colored strips through the slits to create the pattern.  If you ever made woven placemats in kindergarten it's the same concept  Wink  !

14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Plaited Cube with Cutouts on: November 29, 2011 06:00:57 PM

I got the idea for this cube from this site: 
but changed it a bit so I could use three different papers.

Use any punch you have to cut the designs.  I like that each cut-out face shows a different color combination.

You will need two 6-block long strips and one 5-block long strip.

The strips are glued together and then and then plaited (braided) to form the cube.

15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Where's Waldo? Origami Star on: November 12, 2011 01:47:02 PM

I was discarding a destroyed Where's Waldo book and it occurred to me that it would be fun to make some of the pages into five pointed origami stars like these:

The trick was to twist and turn the template so that Waldo would show in the finished star.

I ended up making a plain paper star and scribbling all over the visible parts.  I unfolded it and laid it on the Waldo page, making sure Waldo was underneath a scribbled section. 

Very important! Turn the right side (the side with Waldo) FACE DOWN before you begin folding!

16  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Skull Pop Up Card on: October 24, 2011 04:57:53 PM

An origamic architecture card for Halloween or Day of the Dead.  I was inspired by a crochet pattern from http://gurmanfravor.blogspot.com/2010/09/papel-picado-filet-crochet-chart.html

Cut on blue lines, mountain fold green lines, valley fold red lines.

17  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Lenticular Effect Pop Up Card on: August 21, 2011 02:54:53 PM
Tilt the card one direction to see the first picture.

Tilt it the other way to see the other picture. 

You can make this by hand cutting and re-assembling the picture strips or you can cut and paste using photoshop or another photo program.

The re-assembled photo is accordion pleated and secured to a base card.  Two open boxes provide the pop up mechanism.

18  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Hawaiian quilt block paper cuttings on: July 22, 2011 06:54:28 AM

I made these paper cuttings from a dingbat font from fontriver.  They're easy!

To hand cut, choose the "letter" that you like and print it (large) on the back of your paper.

Fold the design into quarters--in half one way, then the other.  Some designs are easier to fold on the diagonal, and some straight across.

Cut.  Unfold.  Don't worry if your cut lines are not exactly on the printed lines on all the layers, it won't show from the front.

You can easily machine cut these.  Just plop the "letter" into your software and cut away.

19  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Woven Paper QR Code on: June 30, 2011 07:46:50 AM
In the category of "Hey, why not?" 

I was able to read it with QuickMark, http://www.quickmark.com.tw/En/basic/index.asp,  on my PC (don't have a smartphone).  Wondering if it actually works on phones!

I used this site, http://qrcode.good-survey.com/ to generate the code, then printed it out to use as a reference while I was weaving.  My weavers are 1/4" wide.

I'm planning to make a card with this as the card front.

(I am not affiliated with any of the sites mentioned)   Cheesy

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!  Scroll down to see what the code reads.

"Happy Birthday!"

20  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Birthday Popper "Card" on: May 03, 2011 06:55:57 AM

I got the idea from Jordan Ferney at Oh Happy Day

Once the popper is popped, it is possible to take it apart and re-fill it.  Don't believe that part on the label that says "not refillable."  HEHEHE

Peel that label right off and replace it with your choice of paper.

At first I thought I was going to have to move to plan B because I could NOT get the darn popper apart.  But I did, finally.  It was a matter of pushing down on the turny part at the bottom with my thumbs, kind of like popping off a bottle cap.

I took a video of my husband opening it (in the KITCHEN so we could sweep it up LOL).
