25 Days of Paper – Day 23

December 23, 2017
This week, I received three unique holiday cards that I’d like to share with you.
Bruce Foster is a paper engineer in Texas who has designed nearly 40 pop-up books for publishers, museums and companies. I featured one of his projects (a pop-up dragon) in my book Playing With Pop-Ups. Bruce sent me this lovely card. Click through to the actual blog post to watch the video!

Chuck Crockford is a Canadian who has supported this blog for a long time and has purchased both copies of the Twelve Months of Paper calendar. Here’s a photo of the PEACE card he made using this year’s calendar (& paper pack).

Peter Dahmen is a paper engineer in Germany who created this incredible snowflake card for Iggesund Paperboard last year. Below you’ll see a video of me handling the card, but if you click here, you can watch see several professional photos and videos of this lovely card.

What interesting holiday cards have you sent or received?

  1. Hello Helen,
    Thought of you when I saw URBAN GEODE STREET ART in a book called STREET CRAFT by Riikka Kuittinen. The artist is Paige Smith. She uses paper in an unusual way for graffiti.
    Happy Holidays.
