Hi, I am Janet from Try it – Like it – Create it, and I have a woven paper vase to share with you as a part of the CutCardStock design team. Do you love working with SVG files? As a graphic designer, I love creating SVG files, and I will be sharing projects, including SVG files, with you twice a month.
This month Pop-Tone is the featured cardstock. I’ve created a decorative piece that is 3-dimensional. Mine is shown in two coordinating colors but it works equally well in one color. Such a cute finished piece that is great for gift-giving, decorating a small space, or sharing as a group craft project with others.
I used two colors from the Pop-Tone sample pack, Gumdrop Green, and Sour Apple. These are 65# card stock. Each Pop-Tone sample pack comes with one sheet of all the colors in the 65 lb cover weight and has one sheet of each of the Pop-Tone 100 lb cover weight. This is a nice way to sample all the colors. Of course, you can purchase the colors separately.
I cut the design on a Cricut Maker. Before cutting, I scaled the design to fit onto a letter-size sheet, then I set my file to cut 1 of each of the two colors. To begin weaving, flip one of the colors so the angled “rays” are in the opposite direction and then stack on top of each other.
I used binder clips to hold the weaving in place to make sure the results were correct before gluing it all together.
