The Sunday Paper #84 + 25 Days of Paper 2015, Day 6
Yay, it’s Sunday and day 6 of the 25 Days of Paper and Saint Nicholas Day! We’ll begin with the tutorial, and a brief Sunday Paper follows below.
Find the red card stock and this screen printed Indian recycled cotton paper in your paper pack. The card stock is just a standard paper; the screen printed paper is called Retro Beads and is available from GPC Papers (a distributor that sells to many stores around the country as well as on-line). The paper cut design on the front of the card shows off the printed paper behind it.
For this project you will need:
Step 1: Cut the template sheet in half along the line and choose which design you wish to cut out. Obviously, the triangle is easier to cut out (and it will also show off more of the screen printed design). Tape the template onto the right-hand side of the card stock.
Step 2: Using a straight edge and a cutting knife, cut out the shapes on the template.
Step 3: I have this star punch that had just enough reach to create a star for the top of my tree.
Step 4: Score the card stock in the center.
Step 5: Attach a piece of double-sided tape (or glue) to the top edge of the front side of the decorative paper, as shown.
Step 6: Affix the taped green paper to the back of the card front, write a note, and send off your holiday greetings!
Share your variations with us, should you choose to cut out a completely different design over in the 25 Days of Paper FB Group!.

Origami Heaven looks like a great exhibition if you’re near Stonybrook University on Long Island.
This looks really amazing! Epson has developed this Paperlab Office System: a paper shredder that makes fresh paper out of your office waste. I’d love to see this in action, so let me know if you see one around! I can only imagine the service calls when office workers get curious about what can be recycled…
Ok, today’s paper is short and sweet. Enjoy your Sunday!
