Editor’s Note

A Passion for Paper Like many of you, I’m one of those passionate paper crafters who can’t give even the simplest gift of treats without putting a ribbon and handmade tag on it first. I’m sure you’re with me in the last-minute-delivery category with gifts, too, because we insist on creating handmade packaging that’s just right. We don’t mean to make life so complicated, right? It’s just so important to us that we show how much we care. And showing that with a paper-crafted masterpiece just seems like the right thing to do. That’s why I’m so in love with this issue. Every page has an idea that can be used as shown or adapted to fit a variety of occasions—from card sets and home décor to creative wraps for everything from gift cards to a loaf of fresh baked bread. And then there are the gifts themselves—clever, creative, crafty paper projects for everyone on your list. You’ll never be without an idea again! Warm the heart of someone special with a handmade gift of paper-crafted love, and keep this very special issue within reach for every card and gift giving occasion.

All Occasion * HOW TO MAKE A CARDSTOCK BOX a. To make a box, measure a rectangle of cardstock that is slightly larger than your card. b. Add an inch (or whatever depth you want the box to be) to all edges and cut out. c. Score along the edge of your initial rectangle measure, cut slits at the corners, fold, and adhere. d. Follow the same procedure for the top, except add 1/8" to the initial rectangle measure on two adjacent sides. (This will allow the top to slip over the bottom.) DID YOU NOTICE? The athlete image on the baseball card is a chipboard sticker, but the other three were all created with a similar dingbat font.

DESIGNER TIP

All Occasion *

When covering small items with patterned paper (such as the pencils), find manufacturers that produce thin papers, such as these from Chatterbox. They are much easier to work with and produce a cleaner looking finished product. BONUS IDEA Try different patterns, embellishments, and sentiments to create masculine or feminine sets for any occasion.

DESIGNER TIP Search the dollar bins in big craft stores for inexpensive items to repurpose.
