It’s Not All About Cards You Know!

Although the vast majority of the sheets on CUP are for making cards there are other things that are catered for.  The most basic of these being envelopes to put your cards into to fantastic paper-craft creations.

Boxes & Envelopes

  1. A5 Box by Sue Bryant (Although the box shown in the example was plain white with a solid lid, I cut out a panel and put acetate in it and then sprayed the whole thing in glitter.  The box can be cut out of card that has been pre-printed in a backing to match the card or gift you intend to put inside if you want).
  2. Grace Angel Pillow Box by Katy Kinsey (Pillow Boxes are handy to put little gifts in.  Some chocolate buttons for a child. Some jewelry for an adult.  Lots of uses.)
  3. Pillow Box Template Kit – 3 sheet Kit by Carol Clarke (Having a kit of three different sized box templates means that you can make boxes with whatever designs you want on them in whichever size you want.  They can either be made of one coloured card and print the template onto the back, or print whatever backing paper onto the front and print the template onto the back to make your own design.  These can make lovely favour boxes at weddings.  They could even take the place of having separate name card to show who’s sitting where as the names could be printed or written on each box before they are pushed into the pillow shape and sugar almonds or whatever put inside).
  4. Shabby Chic Rose 5×5 Envelope 2 Mix N Match by Ammie Sanders (A quick an easy 5″ x 5″ envelope)
  5. Shabby Chic Rose 5×5 Envelope 1 Mix N Match by Ammie Sanders (Another quick an easy 5″ x 5″ envelope that matches the other Shabby Chic Rose designs)

Bookmarks

  1. On The Farm 2 by Carol Brown (Quick and easy to make and just great for young children just starting to read.  The bookmarks can just be printed onto good quality card, as in this case, or they can be printed on lighter material and then stuck onto a heavier weight card.  They can even be laminated to make them long lasting, although with young children they like to have a change and get a new bookmark often).
  2. 4 Stitchen sewing bookmarks/dl toppers by Sharon Poore (Here I’ve used two of a set of 4 bookmarks, making one into a card and one stuck onto a matted card to make a bookmark, which gives a small gift to give with a card without having to go out and buy something extra).
  3. Just Roses Quick Card with Wavy Corner side stacker Topper by Carol Clarke (With the sheet used to create this the Wavy Corner side stacker topper and the bookmark came together on the same sheet, so once again a gift to go with the card.  This time I mounted the bookmark in a pocket on the card).
  4. Little Chick Quick Card with Pyramage by Carol Clarke (Another card where I’ve attached the bookmark to the front of the matching card, this time attached with some ribbon.  I think that this would make a nice get well card as often people do a bit of reading while recuperating).
  5. Card with Corner Wavy side stacker by Carol Clarke (For this one I haven’t attached the bookmark to the card, just put it inside the envelope with the card to go off together).

Papercraft Creations

1Blooming Marvellous 3D Baby Shoes in Yellow

  1. Blooming Marvellous 3D Baby Shoes in Yellow by Katy Kinsey (I cut around the whole outline and then snipped in both sides of the”V” shapes to make the tabs, which made cutting out easier than trying to cut in and out.  These are a bit fiddly to put together but I found that Bookbinding glue grabs and holds a bit better than PVA or other wet glue, thus meaning that the shoes didn’t need as much holding before they had stuck in place.)
