Handmade Hellos by Eunice Moyle and Sabrina Moyle (Chronicle Books)
Buy the Book ($19.95)
I don’t usually think of myself as a paper crafter–my comfort zone is definitely sewing–but the new book Handmade Hellos has me positively itching to break out the paper and glue. Created by Eunice and Sabrina Moyle (who run the Hello! Lucky Letterpress company), Handmade Hellos features a heap of clever card ideas from some of today’s hottest crafters and designers, including The Small Object, Binth, Shim + Sons and more. There’s a card idea for every occasion in here, and you can experiment with a bunch of different techniques from simple stamping and collage to creating pop-ups and screenprints. These cards are total works of art you can send off in the mail, and you’ve gotta love that.
This week’s CRAFT Pattern Podcast features an excerpt from Handmade Hellos: Amy Karol‘s Photo Ornament Holiday Card. Download our free PDF to learn how to make this adorable holiday card that doubles as a reusable wooden ornament.
