Tags:
die-cutting, dies, kids, office, stationery,

Brighten up your craft space with Keren Baker’s mix ‘n’ match stationery set. Your desk will be the envy of everyone with your own handmade pen pot, paperclip box and sticky note holder! Plus, if you’re planning on gifting these to a friend, there’s a matching card that completes the collection.

Top tips!
1. Double-sided patterned paper with a decent weight makes creating gift boxes easy. the contrasting pattern also makes a nice surprise when you open the box.

2. Look out for coloured elastic to add to your papercrafting projects - we used silver for this set but neon brights would work just as well.

3. Papercrafting isn’t all about gift tags and greetings. Brighten up your office space with this fun stationery set, or send it as a gift for a student’s new academic year.

Pyramage Birthday Card

Tags:
card, cards, dies,

This quirky alternative to traditional decoupage makes a fun and cheery greeting

The pyramage technique is an alternative form of the classic 3-D decoupage used by card makers and a fun way to design dimensional cards, especially if you want to get the kids involved with the making process. The main image is built up using graduating layers of the central design to give a pyramid shape to the card.

Traditionally square or rectangular layers are used, but layers can also be round, oval or any shape you wish. Nesting dies are the ideal way to create your own pyramage designs. Just make sure that the same section of the main image is used and that each layer is lined up perfectly with the one below. I’ve created a simple design for this tutorial, which is easy to replicate if you’ve never tried pyramage before.
Coloured in with bright, cheery shades, it makes a perfect card for a child’s birthday whatever the age.
