Paper+Craft DIY and giveaway!

Thanks to this blog, I’ve been lucky enough to make friends with lots of the people I write about, and Minhee from Paper+Cup Design is no exception.  I had been a huge fan of her work even before I got to know her, and now having gotten to know her, Truman and even little TJ, has made it all the more special!  Which is why I’m so proud of Paper+Craft, the book she and Truman just released with stylist Randi Brookman Harris…its chock full of beautifully designed crafts that are super easy to make for any occasion.

Like the DIY project below…these would make for fun gifts or cake toppers, and its super duper easy!

Materials needed:
Photo
Black paper
Mini christmas tree or plant
Scissors
Cuttting mat
Metal ruler
Tape
Glue stick
Ribbon
Thin strips of wooden sticks
white ink pen

How to:
+ Place a piece of tape on top of the photo and stick it on top of the black paper
+ Take your scissors and cut around the photo shape
+ Place a piece a tape on a stick inside the black cut out shape
+ Cover it with glue stick
+ Place the photo on top to enclose the stick inside the 2 pieces of paper
+ Write a message on back with the white pen
+ Stick the photo stick inside your plant
+ Decorate with a ribbon

Chronicle Books is letting me giveaway 3 copies, and I’ve got a special FOURTH copy that is autographed by Minhee, Truman and Randi to giveaway myself…you’ll definitely want to get your hands on this!  Leave a comment below about what you’d use the book for, and 4 winners will be announced on Monday.  Good luck!
