Quick Overview

Review


Toppers, those instant embellishments made from card and anything else you can think of, took the crafting world by storm when they arrived on the scene a few years
ago. They can be bought in pretty packets in any craft store, but if you call yourself a card maker, why not make your own? Here is another entry in this excellent series
showing twenty staged projects, plus ideas for another twenty so you need never buy another pack of toppers. You can make these lovely little items from almost anything,
and to depict almost anything, rather as you can ATCs (artist trading cards). Make them in advance, and you really won t need to buy pre-made ones even when you are in a
hurry for a card. Just about every papercrafting item gets pressed into service here, and techniques include punching, die cutting, using fabrics, paper tearing, chalking and
more. There are some templates to trace and use, but many of the items do rely on punches (such an investment) and the more expensive die cutting machine. There are some
gorgeous Christmas toppers showing snowmen, robins and puddings, Easter gets covered by a lovely country style hen (my own favorite from this book). Add to this a
champagne bottle, fashion accessories, cupcakes, fish, flowers and a beautiful panda and bear with torn paper edges (very effective) and you have a good range of occasion
covered. Nothing is difficult, and it got me thinking about making at least part of my cards in advance plus the all-important coordinated tags for the presents. Lovely and very
useful. --Rachel Hyde



Never be stuck for inspiration again with this delicious book-full of ideas for homemade tags & toppers. With the help of these nifty ideas, you'll get great results using the
simple paper scraps from your stash! Tags & Toppers contains 20 ideas to make tonight. Give a smiley snowman a snow globe twist, get funky with layered felt or try Christmas
pud toppers. There's something for everyone here. A handy bonus is the ready-to-trace shape templates, coupled with easy step-by-step instructions. You'll never buy a
ready-made tag or topper again. --Papercraft Inspirations, Nov 08



Tags And Toppers


Tags and toppers are mini, three-dimensional sticker motifs made using pretty papers, glitter, ribbons and any other kind of embellishment you can think of.They are
designed to adorn handmade greetings cards, gift boxes, bags and scrapbook pages.Craft shops are filled to overflowing with gorgeously themed packs of readymade ones,
but it is so easy, and so much more fun, to make your own!All you need are some basic craft materials and tools, and tags and toppers need such small pieces of paper and
ribbon that they are an ideal way of using up all your left over scraps from other projects.
