81  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Card from Felted Sweater on: February 25, 2008 06:35:00 AM
My mother in law had a lovely sweater.  The laundry ladies at her retirement home washed it for her.  Now it wouldn't fit my chihuahua!  So I started cutting it up.

I think the sentiment inside should be "Heartfelt.....(something)"  Love?  Greetings?


82  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Peek Inside Easter Egg Card (Updated!) on: February 24, 2008 08:06:03 AM
I made this to look like those eggs with the cut out front and the scene inside.  This is my first prototype.   I want to try a more Faberge looking design for another one and put a family photo inside.

Pop up is half open here.

Fully open.


Here's the final version  Smiley




The egg pattern is on my blog.

83  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Easter Egg Pop Up Card on: February 21, 2008 05:40:12 AM
I'm working on this easter egg pop up card.  Need to brainstorm some more ideas for decorating it.  I could do a Faberge egg or cut an peek hole in the front and put a scene inside...

I tried to get a bunny to jump out of the top but can't seem to make it work. 

I kind of like the chalked background, but the yellow vertical lines have got to go.  They look like stink rising from the egg!

84  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Sweet 16 pop up birthday card on: February 18, 2008 12:49:24 PM

The foil looks really odd on the scan.  In real life it looks blue and purple.

This is Indigo or maybe it's Ichigo? from Tokyo Mew Mew.

Has anyone used any of these cutters?  I would want to make a computer generated design, indicate cutting and scoring lines, and then put it in the cutter to cut and score it.  Do they work?  Are they worth the money?
87  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentine Pop Up Card (3D Heart Card) on: February 06, 2008 05:13:41 PM
Inspired by this post

I made mine a little flatter (2 blocks high instead of 3) because it fit the glued on hearts around the edge better.  I glued a little heart on each of the pop up struts.  They're supposed to look like the conversation hearts, and they cover up the white paper.

I think it needs...something...as a background.   I wish I had printed a very pale background of conversation hearts on the entire card inside BEFORE I cut it.  So..I'm going to try printing it out separately and gluing it on somehow.  It's worth a try, right?

UPDATE:  It worked!  I printed out the background, cut out the middle and glued it all together.  Much better.

Side view to show the pop up mechanism.

Finally had a chance to pick out a paper to finish the outside of the card.  It's two sided paper that has the dark purple on one side and light on the other.  Here is the cover of the card.

Here is the inside with the light purple edging.  I thought the card needed to be trimmed a little smaller, too.  DONE!

88  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Tooth Fairy Pillows on: February 03, 2008 08:05:22 AM
The first one is adapted from the same pattern that another Craftster used here,  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222627.0 for a completely different effect (caution, adult language). 

The ribbon pillow was pinned together and then fused to backing fabric with wonder under.

The fairies attach with velcro so they can be removed to play with.  Both were made to look like the child who received the pillow. 

89  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Photo Flip Card (Reverse Waterfall Card) Link to Tutorial on: January 26, 2008 03:02:49 PM
Here's my version of this card: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_paper_crafts_cards/article/0,,HGTV_3290_3857660,00.html

I fiddled with the mechanism to make a push tab instead of a pull tab.  That way the tab seems to stay the same size at every flip, instead of getting longer and longer at the bottom.

The cover.
The velum is glued only around the edges so the foil confetti shapes can shake around like seeds.

Pushing the tab to flip the cover open.

Pages flip up as you push the bottom tab. 
The fold line/flipping hinge of the card is just above the top of the tree (it's kind of hard to see with these scanned flat).

Kids grow and tree gets more decorated with each flip.

Cover open.

First flip.

Second flip.

Third flip.

Fourth flip.

Here is the back.  The picture is printed on the band that holds the pages in place.

90  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Collapsing Wallet/Interlocking Closure Card (Xtreme Xmas Card) on: January 16, 2008 05:41:02 AM
When I was little my grandmother brought me a wallet from Mexico that collapsed like this.  I ran a loop of embroidery floss through one corner so you could hang it when it was folded.

Later today I'm going to try remaking this as a pentagon instead of a square.  I kinda think it will leave a hole in the middle.  THEN, I'm going to make it into a box instead of a flat.  And THEN I'm going to try it with shaped pieces that interlock at the top like this: http://www.cardigami.com/Images/DCP_2387a-199x250.jpg
Those cardigamis take up a LOT of paper because they start as a big star shape.  Mine starts as a long rectangle.

UPDATE:  so, yes, increasing the number of sides leaves a hole in the middle.  The cube works fine.  Still haven't done the fancy closing one.  Anyone want instructions? 

Even with instructions, I don't think anyone refolded these  Smiley
