A very pretty free download for a mini greeting card and letter writing set by Amy Moss at Eat Drink Chic. Very nice!
Our friend Ann at All Things Paper has found another use for quilling paper strips – weaving them to make a stylish card. And all you need to do is change the colour palette (how about various blues on white, or go traditional with reds and greens) to change the season to the (rapidly-approaching for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere!) winter.
This is a really sweet idea from Designing Moms: windowed cards containing a selection of tiny treasures. You could customize the treasures to match the season or the recipient’s interests! See their tiny treasure cards tutorial for all the info you need to make your own.
Absolutely lovely idea from the people over at Design*Sponge for a menu wheel. Here is how it works:
“Treat your guests to a fun surprise at the dinner table with a spinning paper wheel menu. As they turn the wheel the cut out reveals the evening’s appetizers, dinner, cocktails and desserts.” [via Whip Up]
With so many of us crafty people making our own gifts for the holidays it might be a nice idea to spend a bit of time making your own packaging. The Eco Etsy Street Team Blog is sharing a tutorial on how to recycle a shopping bag into a shipping envelope.
A gorgeous idea for your next dinner party or special occasion: make these simple papercut place cards from little white book. (Note: no templates are provided, but you could easily make your own using clipart or your own simple designs.)
I think this must be my favourite project of the year; how to make scratch off lottery tickets. ArtMind has a step-by-step tutorial for this one. Just think of all the great things you can use this for!!
PS – I’m finding lots of great links via Twitter these days. We don’t have a Folding Trees Twitter account (there are only so many hours in the day, and running the site takes all the time we can spare) but feel free to follow me @planetjune and/or send me an @ message if you post about paper crafty stuff and I’ll follow you
Inchmark is treating us to a really lovely idea. These speech bubble note cards are so easy to make and can also be a great recycle project if you use the insides of your security envelopes.
