The Cricut fun leading up to Maker Faire continues over here. I cut all these shapes out of ordinary playing cards. (It takes a deep-but blade, center-pointing, and a little creative finagling, but works great.)
I love playing cards as a creative medium, because their graphics are beautiful, and hold endless possibilities.
…And then, once cut, they recombine in interesting ways.
(See how the graphics align here?! This is me, geeking out hard.)
The card you cut the shape from is as useful as the shape itself!
Anyway, I used them to make these Maker Notebooks, which have roots in this project. I’ll be demo-ing these at the Provo Craft booth, and I’ll be bringing a ton of cards with me, so you can make one of your own!
I worked out a pretty cool little duct-tape binding, if I do say so my dang self. I used some white duct on the inside and clear duct on the outside. I loves me some little notebooks.
Come play at the Provo Craft booth in the Exhibit Hall!
