Australian Papercraft Essentials Issue No. 7

Yay - popped into the newsagents to find my latest set of cards are in this issue. I was commissioned by the magazine to create some cards by making my own embellishments.

I found an old men's tie in an op-shop - it's teal and has a paisley design all over it. I also used the foil tops off yoghurt and butter, old photo slides, old sewing patterns, self-covering buttons, bottle caps, ice-cream lid (for the torso) and other bits and pieces. I used a piece of the tie for each card. They were so fun to make - I just love to recycle.

Thanks for looking.

I grabbed a copy of the mag today and settle down with a big glass of diet coke which almost went all over the mag when I saw your cards... how exciting! Sandie, your cards are absolutely stunning and so darn original, so you! Congratulations!
