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!

Many squares makes a card

During our recent All Day Open House Craft Day, the card making ladies, armed with their square paper hole punch, made some lovely cards!


Lots of punched out squares. Guess what they are cut out of? The insides of different envelopes! I bet you never knew the insides of envelopes were so pretty!

The edges of each square in this card were swiped along the side of a little ink pad to give them a shaded edge. Then, glued on dark blue paper, you will never see the little gaps.
Glue all the squares onto a piece of paper then place a template over it, trace and cut out a fancy shape.
The edges of this shape are also shaded giving the card real depth.
Katelyn was our youngest attendee at the craft day. She made some pretty gift tags with the envelope squares.

More squares! This time cut out of christmas wrapping paper.

This time, a gold three was used in the sewing machine to stitch around each edge after they were glued into place.

Hope you feel inspired!
A great card making method for all ages I'd say.
