Tutorial Tryouts are my reviews of DIY gift wrapping ideas from the internet and other sources. Click here for the whole series!Tutorial Tryout series! There are too many cool ideas online, and you need to try some of them before your mind goes on creativity overload. Today's tutorial is by Laura Normandin of Wren Handmade. This is actually part of the tutorial I used to make paper garlands some time ago. Here's an image of her cards:
I am actually not very good at making cards for birthdays (recycled cereal box postcards seem a bit odd to send to grandparents), but - thanks to the tutorial - these are both festive and fitting.
Inevitably, bits of past gifts wrapped made their way into the cards. The ends of the tissue paper pom-pom from this gift provided the wave pattern on the dark brown card above, and a scrap leftover from the celery-stamped gift wrap became a box in the stack of gifts below.
These cards would make lovely accompaniments to a gift. Or, of course, they could be sent alone. Sometimes a handmade card and heartfelt words are a gift unto themselves!
What about you? Are you a card-maker?
