Pop Top Craft Preview

Here are some photos of a bracelet from my collection of Pop Top Crafts taken by the amazing Jay Reilly:

I have tons of accessories made like this including belts, earrings and necklaces that I’ve written DIY instructions for. Jay is kindly photographing them for my new Etsy shop…I’ll announce the opening here when it is ready!

Hello Kitty Mermaid Art in 3-D Cut Paper

Hello Kitty as my favorite mythological creature! She’s currently framed in my office next to her sister. She’s all hand cut scrapbook paper with foam board in between her layers to make her 3-D. I bent some of the paper to give it a rounded effect before I glued it together.

Frog Sketch

Working on some 3D, cut paper Harry Potter projects that I’m really excited about! I’ll post them here soon but in the meantime here are some more sketches of frogs…Chocolate Frogs, of course 😉

Cut Paper Halloween Witch and Ghosts

This Etsy-style witch was inspired by all the witches I loved as a kid including Samantha from Bewitched, Wendy from Casper the Friendly Ghost and the Wicked Witch of the West from Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz. I had just a tiny piece of the damask scrapbook paper I used for the ghosts and saved it for the right project for a year! Everything is made from hand cut paper with a bit of ink on the ghosts’ faces and acrylic paint for the ghost dust.
