You might know from my “About” page that I’m an ardent crafter. I feel purposeful, productive only when I’m able to create, craft, make something. I’m happiest among my papers, punches, glue, scissors, yarn and ribbons.
This is my first how-to post, and I’m putting it up as a part of the #NanoPoblano2019 challenge. Thanks for reading!
2 A4 sheets of solid colored paper (The cream colored cardstock is my base and I’m using a red paper as my main color).
1 sheet of double-sided paper (here I’ve used hand-made paper with one printed side and one plain).
I’ve used a hand-painted mod-melts butterfly. You can use anything available; eg. ready-made artificial flower, or make a flower out of lace or ribbon or paper, or even an origami shape!
Tools: Scissors (or paper trimmer), gluestick, fevicol, ruler, 3-D double sided tape.
The cream colored cardstock is my base. Cut an A4 sheet into half, or if you’re using another size paper, about 10.5cm X 15cm. Fold it in half (so that it’s 7.5cm x 10.5cm). Now cut the colored paper (red here) about 0.5cm smaller both in length and width of the half paper, so about 10cm x 7cm.
Now we’ll make the window. Cut the double-sided paper into a 4 inch x 4 inch square. Fold it according to this diagram:
This is the end result:
Now stick this window onto your base.
Add the applique of your choice.
I love this butterfly and the card itself so much I’ve put it up as my blog header:)
