A new craft mash-up for a new blog hop
Here’s a medium ripe for experimentation in three dimensions, and for merging with other crafts. There must be some fun uses for it. Turns out, there are!
Papercrafts, meet plastic canvas
After learning some basic stitches and bending and folding pieces together, I realized what I was envisioning was similar to papercraft sculptures. Voilà, you can do any papercraft with plastic canvas! After spending time with bookworm relatives, I thought these paper corner monster bookmarks from Tally’s Treasury would be perfect gifts. Try some of the pictured paper crafts with plastic canvas. I challenge you to make ceiling cat or grumpy cat before I do!
Cut out the face
Cross stitch the teeth
Stitch the edges
Gobelin stitch the face
Stitch face parts together
Stitch remaining edges
Glue on eyes
Now feed your monster bookmark some book pages! I’d absolutely love to see your projects on my Facebook page, or tag them @knitsforlife on Instagram. And stay tuned to the Plastic Canvas Blog Hop for more fun projects this week.
