Papercraft Star Challenge #8 - Poodle Thank You Card

This is what I've created for Papercraft Star this week!





Our challenge (that is going on still!) is Buttons, Bows & Bling and I'm in LOVE with this little poodle from Create A Critter! I've been on a chipboard run at the moment, and created this 'Merci' saying from layers of thin chipboard, glued together and then the top layer made of a thick patterned paper. I made the buttons as well (not literally the buttons themselves, lol) but I did use clear buttons, stuck them onto patterned paper that matches the phrase, let them dry, popped out the paper blocking the holes, and cleaned them out before running some embroidery floss through to tie through them. You can read the full tutorial, with photos here.

Here's a rundown on Papercraft Star:

Papercraft Star is a challenge blog that presents paper crafters of all skill levels with new challenges each week. Upon entering your project in the challenge the public is provided with an opportunity to vote on all projects entered for that challenge. At the close of the challenge the top vote getter will receive a Papercraft Star button and sometimes valuable prizes. Every three weeks, winners of the previous three challenges will move forward into the finals where the Judges will then select a Papercraft Superstar for that challenge period.

I hope you enjoy and can take a minute to play along with us, or vote for your favorite projects!

Cardboard doesn't hit the trash can in my house. There are so many things you can do with it. Your title looks great! Love the buttons too. Great tip.
