If you're prone to forgetting all about thank you cards, the girls from The New Craft Society have got a solution - make your own!
- Blank cards
- Craft knife
- Cutting mat
You need to:
- First decide on your design. This could be anything from simple lettering or a more elaborate design - be as imaginative as you want!
- Lightly draw on your design. If you want to create a frame around your design use a ruler to make it neat. Drawing on your design first makes it a lot easier to cut out later and you can always rub out any pencil markings that are left.
- Carefully cut around your design on the cutting mat. Go slowly!
- Take out all of the cut out pieces of card and you should see your design appear! I have left mine empty behind the design, as I really like the shadows that the papercut makes, but these would look great with a contrasting coloured card or some patterned fabric behind the papercut.
