By Kate on March 11, 2014 Hello! Last year I made some ‘origami bunny’ chocolate bar wrappers and I thought the bunny would look nice on these treat boxes. The design is really minimal and suitable for kids and grown-ups. If you want to make a real origami bunny then check out this post at howaboutorange. Are you making anything for Easter?

How to make a simple paper frame This time I'd like to share with you a simple and easy way to make a paper picture frame, like the one shown in the photo above. Personally, I like using such paper frames for my quilling. This is how the template for such a frame looks like. Geo-paper totem!! I used to love making 3D nets at school (it’s the only bit of maths I actually enjoyed). I’ve been thinking for a long time they would look great with faces on. You can make a garland or mobile with them. You can sit a few on your desk to keep you company. gingerandgeorge Halfway through this whirlwind blog tour already (how did that happen?), and today I’m welcoming Floresita, the lovely editor and founder of Feeling Stitchy. NAME: Floresita BLOG: Feeling Stitchy NOTES: Feeling Stitchy has a very special place in my heart, partly because of the wonderful selection of embroidery they feature, but also because, as the winner of a competition way back in 2008, I designed their banner!

DIY Fendi Frill It was love at first sight when we laid eyes on the amazing oversized, billowy, ruffled frills adorning the Fall 2010 runway looks at Fendi. We immediately wanted one and just couldn’t imagine having to wait another several months to actually see these frills materialize. With some research, persistence, and umpteen botched attempts, we finally figured out a fail-proof pattern.

When she was finished, she assembled them into a stampede. She has 3 patterns in her corral (get it, corral? the fox with the golden fur My love affair with packaging has resulted in me buying an assortment of crazy things that I will probably never open or use. I own a beautifully illustrated box of Swedish tobacco chew that I will never consume, a small container of bobby pins from the ’20s with pink flamingo branding and Japanese rice paper envelope packaging that is too gorgeous (and fragile) to peel open. As open as I am to such non-functional purchases (they’ve inspired many projects and decorations), I relish the chance to buy beautiful packaging that I would actually consider opening, using and enjoying.

Understanding SVG Coordinate Systems and Transformations (Part 1) — The viewport, <code>viewBox</code>, and <code>preserveAspectRatio</code> SVG elements aren't governed by a CSS box model like HTML elements are. This makes positioning and transforming these elements trickier and may seem—at first glance—less intuitive. However, once you understand how SVG coordinate systems and transformations work, manipulating SVGs becomes a lot easier and makes a lot more sense. In this article we're going to go over three of the most important SVG attributes that control SVG coordinate systems: viewport, viewBox, and preserveAspectRatio. This is the first in a series of three articles covering the topic of coordinate systems and transformations in SVG. Become a Member for free access to this and other files on the site.
