Try your hand at one of our papercraft projects
It’s been a while since I filmed a video tutorial or written a project up for the blog. I decided it was about time that changed!
This paper crafting project is one to get your crafty juices flowing! it’s got die cutting, stamping, inky backgrounds and heat embossing.
If you don’t have the same stamps and dies as me, don’t worry. You can use other colours, stamps and dies. For example you might have a stamp that says “with love” and an intricate heart die. You could use these tools instead to make a Valentine’s Day card in red or pink tones.Continue reading Die Cutting with Tonic Studios
