Creative Card Ideas

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

I always give a handmade card for birthdays. But year after year the pressure is on to top the card from the previous year!  I am always on the look out for new ideas, pop-ups or different unique shapes to make my cards.  The Encyclopedia of Paper-folding Designs is full of innovative card templates from an assortment of Japanese designers. I gave a few of them a try by enlarging the templates on a copy machine and transposing them to card stock.  They are super fun!

Cute kitty cards!  These guys are beyond adorable. They make a sweet note or even fun table place cards.

This cool geometric card folds out from a neat pentagram into a long banner style card.  It could be adapted for whatever occasion.  The pentagram shape would make a lovely Christmas star!

Heart shaped petals peel open to reveal your message on this one.  It’s perfect for Valentine’s day!

The Encyclopedia of Paper-folding Designs is a great resource for any avid card maker and is available with all your other fun card making supplies at The Paper Place!

Toronto’s First Post Office is a museum, National Historic Site, and fully functioning Post Office operated by the Town of York Historical Society.  Dating back to 1833, this building is one of few left standing from the Old Town of York, and the oldest purpose-built PO in Canada.  From the cozy Reading Room, you can still write a letter with a quill pen, seal it with wax and even mail it from the same post office that served the citizens of the new city.  From this communications hub on Adelaide Street East, the Society continues to tell the story of the Town of York and early Toronto.

 

See you there!
