About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Cards by Anne

Here's an idea for making a card with an extra dimension. 
These cards are by Anne. To make them you need 3 of the same picture and some card.

Stick 2 smaller cutouts of the main picture on card (to make it stronger). Glue them onto some open ended rectangular prisms. These will automatically fold flat when you close the card.

Here is another design Anne made. 
Its something different to do with that special paper tole paper you have in your stash. It gives a nice surprise to the receiver when opening the card.

Who can resist a Hummel figurine paper tole card? Anne had a few of these too.

Did you know...?
A nun, Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel first sketched little drawings of children in the 1930s. An art company published them on postcards and then a porcelain maker started making them into little figurines in 1935. American soldiers in Germany bought them and sent them home to the US as gifts. There you are. A bit of Hummel history.
