Hope you all are doing good. It's an April month and Summers are approaching, So don't let the summers take away your MOJO. We have a way to bring out your mojo back. Today, Our GDT Neha Lunia, in our Teaching and Learning Program, will be going to teach an detailed card to gift to your loved ones. Let's get started!! Hi Crafty Folks,
This is Neha here with my first GDT post. I would like to thank Rainbow Craftykari Team and Maninder Kaur for giving this awesome opportunity to work with them. We all do have lots of pattern papers which are half used. So, this card is perfect to use them up. Today, I have tutorial post for creating this addictive and super easy “Starburst Card” with very few basic materials.
1. Let’s get started by cutting the pieces required for the card.
1 piece of 3 ¾ * 3 ½ “cardstock
1 piece of 3 7/8 *5 ¾ “cardstock
4 pieces of 4*1 ½ “Pattern Paper (of your choice)
1 piece of 2*3 ¾ “Pattern Paper
2. Cut each of 4*1 ½ “of your pattern paper diagonally by lining the edges up on your paper trimmer.
3. Place 3 ¾ * 3 ¼ “cardstock on your scoreboard along the long side. Mark on centre at 1 7/8” with the help of pen/pencil. Rotate 180 degree and repeat the same.
4. Apply glue all over on your 3 ¾ * 3 ½ “cardstock.
5. Line the pointed tip at the bottom and top of marked centre points. Once you have first piece in place then you can start adding other strips. Keep going and play around the combination.
6. Trim off the excess edges and you have your starburst ready.
7. Mount your starburst onto the 3 7/8 * 5 ¾ “cardstock. Line up your 2* 3 ¾ “of Pattern Paper below the starburst with help of any adhesive of your choice.
8. Place 8 ¼ *6” cardstock on your scoreboard with the long side on top and score at 4 1/8” and fold along the scored line.
9. Mount your starburst onto the folded card with help of adhesive. Decorate the card with die cuts, laces, trims, flowers or sentiments as you prefer. Here, I have used my designer scissor and strips of plain cardstock to make the trim. I have punched few small 5 petal flowers and leaves. Have shaped up the flowers using embossing tool (you can also use rounded back of your ball pen). Lastly, have completed the card with cutting off sentiment from the same paper pack.
Hope this tutorial has inspired you to use some of your scraps of card and paper. Do share your creations with us at our FB Page
A very good morning to you all. Hope you all had an awesome weekend.
Do you guys have some empty food cans!! don't no what to do with it?? Do you throw it away?? Then stop thinking too much because today our Guest DT Kriti has came with awesome tutorial on recycling the cans in our Teaching and Learning Program and she has a card tutorial also. So grab your cold drinks and enjoy it.
Over to you Kriti,
I am so happy and excited to be a part of Rainbow Craftykari
Guest Design Team member, heartiest thanks to Maninder Kaur and Rainbow
Craftykari Team for this opportunity. Today, I have come up with a tutorial
post for the ongoing Monthly Challenge “Revamp your Scraps”, for details HERE.
What do you do with the cans when you are done with the food item? You
probably throw them right into the recycling bin. Maybe you wait a while to
accumulate a bunch before you chuck them out, or maybe you toss them every
week. Either way, you are parting ways with a valuable craft supply. You can
use your crafty skills to turn empty cans into all sorts of cool things! Here is
my idea to get you going, you can use it to hold pens, pencils, or paint
Tutorial for Altering the can-
Firstly apply black acrylic paint on the edges.
Take two pattern papers,
a. One whose length is equal with the height of the can and breadth approximately 4 inches.
b. Second whole length is equal with the height of the can and breadth approximately 2 inches less than the circumference of the can.
Firstly paste the first pattern paper and then paste the second pattern paper (don't apply the glue on the above two corners,bend them), in that way so that the first paper pop out from the second one. If I am making it too complex, refer the picture.
Leave it to dry and then let your imagination run wild with your craft stash. You can use any colour of lace, flowers, etc. I have used pink colored lace as it was going with my pattern papers.
Next I used my script stencil and made some scripts texture using modelling paste.
After the modelling paste dry I took bubble stamp and stamped on it to give a bit more contrast and to fill in a bit more of the open space.
The beauty of this project is that once you've created the basic tin, it can be then customized in any way you like, creating a totally unique finished item which perfectly reflects your individual character and tastes! The possibilities are endless, so, what will you add to yours??? Silk flowers, pearls or gems perhaps???
I have decorated it with some leaves, flowers, twine, MDF butterfly and in the last added a tag.

Tutorial for card-
-> Take a black cardstock of 4'' by 6'' size and score on 6'' side at 3''.
->Take a pattern paper of the 3-3/4'' by 2-3/4'' size (I have taken matching pattern paper as that of tin).
-> Distress the edges of the pattern paper with the distress tool (I have used scissors).
-> Adhere the pattern paper onto the black cardstock.
-> Next I made some script texture using modelling paste and script stencil. Next made some stamping using bubble stamp.
