A new obsession...

I needed to make a card for my nephew's birthday yesterday. This happened to coincide with seeing the latest issue of Making Magazine. A few years ago, I saw an amazing example of papercutting and the magazine reignited my interest, so I thought I'd give it a go. The card needed a space theme, so I designed a simple rocket card with his name and age on it, cut it from black card and backed it with foil. Needless to say, I loved doing it and since then, I've designed a whole series of cards to add to my Folksy shop! I'm going to be hoovering up tiny offcuts of paper and card for months!

I've just done a quick Google search for papercutting, and have a feeling I'lll be back soon to share some of my favourites with you!

To see what other crafties have been up to over the weekend, take a look at Handmade Monday.
