Our designers and G45ers have a particular knack for incredible 3D projects. that's why we love to with you a "Happy Papercrafting" because sometimes creativity can't just keep to a page. It has to show itself off in 3D altered art. Today, Danielle Copley and Ginny Nemchak show you 2 ways to dream off-the-page! And we adore these projects!
First, Danielle has an incredible World's Fair altered pop-up matchbook box. We love her video tour below. What a great idea for the adventurous friends and family in your life! Or, to keep on a shelf if you are one yourself!
"I have fallen in love…again! Meet my new love- the Graphic 45 Altered Art Matchbook Box. I am mainly a money or gift card giver and I wanted a fun new way of presenting a small gift, like a gift card or similar, so in walks the new love of my life and, boy, did we had a blast together! Throw in some World’s Fair paper and a fun pop-up twist when the recipient opens the box, and our time together was super fun!
Tip: Sometimes it’s hard to part with a handmade card for fear of its fate once given away, but the Altered Matchbook Box is a gift in itself that the recipient can use after the gift card is gone: for holding small items or re-gift it to keep the gift giving going (no shame in that). Your hard work and time will not be wasted with this fun gift box." ~Danielle

Now, how about this Communique stand display by Ginny. Another perfect idea! Great for an antiques shelf, or for those friends who love a good vintage find!
"I can just image this very vintagy Stand Display on a ladies makeup table or added to a collection of heirloom treasures on a shelf. I overloaded it with flowers so it would have a very feminine feel which is a great combination with the more masculine paper patterns for Communique. I love the texture from the gears and ribbon trim." ~Ginny
