Paper+Craft DIY and giveaway!

Thanks to this blog, I’ve been lucky enough to make friends with lots of the people I write about, and Minhee from Paper+Cup Design is no exception.  I had been a huge fan of her work even before I got to know her, and now having gotten to know her, Truman and even little TJ, has made it all the more special!  Which is why I’m so proud of Paper+Craft, the book she and Truman just released with stylist Randi Brookman Harris…its chock full of beautifully designed crafts that are super easy to make for any occasion.

Like the DIY project below…these would make for fun gifts or cake toppers, and its super duper easy!

Materials needed:
Photo
Black paper
Mini christmas tree or plant
Scissors
Cuttting mat
Metal ruler
Tape
Glue stick
Ribbon
Thin strips of wooden sticks
white ink pen

How to:
+ Place a piece of tape on top of the photo and stick it on top of the black paper
+ Take your scissors and cut around the photo shape
+ Place a piece a tape on a stick inside the black cut out shape
+ Cover it with glue stick
+ Place the photo on top to enclose the stick inside the 2 pieces of paper
+ Write a message on back with the white pen
+ Stick the photo stick inside your plant
+ Decorate with a ribbon

Behind the scenes

When I first started getting responses to the card swap, I had to think about what I could do this year that would be different and special from past years.  As the numbers rose well past 200, I had to think large scale since I send EVERYONE on the list a card!  I enlisted the help of the INSANELY talented Randi Brookman Harris [whose wedding and styling I have adored forever] and Jenny Ebert [a photographer I adore!] to help me set up a card shoot that could double as a gift.  Randi mixed in some stuff I owned with her own to create this gorgeous backdrop, and her dog Olive ended up getting into the holiday spirit as well!   I’ll leave you this holiday season with some outtakes from the shoot….thank you Randi and Jenny for helping me with this!  You’re both amazing amazing amazing!!

I’ll see you all back here in 2010…have a wonderful holiday filled with love and laughter!
