I have the 5th part of my series on one layer cards in the issue of Craft Stamper which is out today. In this "episode" I look at holes and apertures. In one of the "further idea" pieces I made confetti shaped holes, and I've been asked if they are hard to do.
They are not!
here's a quick tutorial of how to do them. This is not the card that is in the magazine, but a quick one made with a stamp from Stampotique.
to create confetti, use craft knife to make a wiggly cut
make another wiggly cut alongside this, crossing it once, twice, or more, if you like, or you can not cross them at all.
join the ends of the lines with cuts. pop out the pieces repeat process for more confetti
add more holes with a hole punch. colour the image, and the inside of the card if desired.
I am happily married with two wonderful sons. I work full-time as a radiographer. I like to make stuff. Cardmaking, knitting, crochet. I'll try anything crafty.I also have an unhealthy love of maths: I did a degree for fun.
I post on my blog in the hope that I will inspire others to create. I am more than happy for you to be inspired by anything I post, and make it your own. Likewise, I get inspiration from all sorts of sources including the blogs of other crafters, although I would never knowingly directly copy another's work I visit so many blogs I pick up inspiration all over the place. Please know that if you are in my blog lists then you inspire me.
