Toptastic crafting

Hello, Pooh here today to show you how to turn your stash into lovely cards.

First, take your box of previously made toppers, or shop bought toppers, whatever is in your box




Have a good look through



And choose some variations of a theme, maybe all of one colour, or flowery toppers.

Then choose some pre scored cards of differing sizes, to match your toppers


Your Cuttlebug could come in handy for cutting patterned paper into various shapes to form the base of your cards.





As I chose to use square cards, I decided to cut my patterned paper into squares to match. Here's one of the papers and toppers I chose to use



Fold the patterned paper into 4, and place onto your chosen die, I used Sizzix framelits square set.








Roll the paper and die through your Cuttlebug, you may need to roll it through more than once with the paper being folded so many times, this will depend on the thickness of your chosen paper.


I cut squares from several different papers, all from the same paper stack, to match my flowered toppers.


Next, glue the back of your cut squares, and adhere to the card, spacing them evenly for a more pawfessional look. Be careful to not get glue on your paws, sticky paws are not good!




Now take a 3d glue dot or sticker and place in the middle of the back of your topper. Place the topper in the middle of your squares, and there you have a lovely card, or two, or more, depending on how crafty you're feeling.





With love from the bears 🐻
