Craft tutorials and free templates


Hello peeps! A quick Easter printable coming later today…before then I just wanted to show you one of the projects I have been working (for my book!).

I can’t get enough of gradients at the moment and love these Plissé folders by Hay so that’s kinda where the idea for these models came from.

The book is going to contain 25 – 30 brand new projects….there will be plenty of papercraft projects but lots of other kinds of projects too! There will also be lots of templates in the book and illustrated step-by-steps (and you will also be able to download full-sized templates from the web too! Yay!). I’m also going to be making videos/animated gif’s for the more complicated projects.

I’m so excited (and a bit tired as well!). Spring is not quite here yet and my two little boys seem to be catching every bug under the sun :-/

Hope all is well with you!

‘Minieco’ the book will be hitting the shelves in September and will be published by Cicada books and distributed by Thames & Hudson. The very talented Garry Maclennan is doing the photography for the book…which is very cool. More information to follow soon…

  1. Thanks for the kind comment Charlotte…glad your decorations look nice ^_^

    Most of the projects in my book are pastel/neon….I’m truly fixated at the moment!

    Have a happy week 🙂

  2. Yippee! So exciting that there is another book on the way! The project you’ve pictured here is gorgeous, but then your whole site is chock full of eye candy and inspiration.

  3. Hello Kate!
    I’m happy that you’re getting your book done! I was wondering if you found an illustrator or is it just going to be photographies!?
    (I sent an email to you more than a month ago about this talented illustrator I knew, I don’t know if you had a chance to look at her portfolio!?)

    always looking forward to your new posts 🙂
    keep up the good work!
