Instructions – Step by Step 

How to make New Year Greeting Card       

1. On the 5.5” x 8.5” black cardstock paper, use a pencil and circle template to draw a 2” diameter circle.

2. On this same black cardstock, draw four other 1.5” diameter circles about 1” apart from one edge to another

How to make New Year Greeting Card  

3. Use the zigzag decorative edge scissors to cut out these five circles.

4. Erase the pencil marks on these circles. Or use these pencil marked sides as the bottom faces.

5. On the 2” diameter circle, use the multicolored metallic thread to wrap around the grooves of the zigzag cuts.

After the first turn, go through another turn but this time with a different offset.

6. On the first 1.5” diameter circle, use the multicolored metallic thread to wrap around the grooves of the zigzag cuts as well.

7. On the second 1.5” diameter circles, first, use the metallic gold thread around on the circle grooves. Then use the metallic copper thread at a different offset.

8. On the third 1.5” diameter circles, first, use the light blue rayon thread around on the circle grooves. Then use the light green rayon thread at a different offset.

9. On the last 1.5” diameter circles, first, use the pink rayon thread around on the circle grooves. Then use the red rayon copper thread at a different offset.

10. Put all the circles in place just to know their approximate locations on the 4” x 6” black cardstock paper. Don’t glue them down yet.

11.On this same cardstock, write “Happy New Year!” with white pen on the bottom right corner.

12. Use the gold pen to trace out a square-like pattern that looks like square rooftops at a distant horizon. Draw this just above the white lettering.

13. Use the gold pen to randomly trace out the fireworks path from the distant roof top horizon to the circle locations.

How to make New Year Greeting Card  

14. Score the 6.5” x 9” maroon cardstock paper right in the middle and fold into a 4.5” x 6.5” card

15. Glue the completed 4” x 6” black cardstock right in the middle of the folded maroon cardstock. This leaves a ¼” margin all around the black cardstock paper.

How to make New Year Greeting Card  

Glue all the circles in place on the black cardstock. The biggest circle shifts out about 3/16” from the edge of the black cardstock. And the other circles shift out ⅛” from the edges as well.

Glue the acrylic jewels at the center of the finished circles. Use the biggest jewel for the biggest circle.

 And with that last step, the card is finished.

Hope you’ve decided on the colors and types of thread to use in creating your own new year greeting card.

From the pictures above, there were a few other metallic strings that did not make it into the card. They include silver and yellow gold colored metallic thread spools.

Apart from these, there are many more options in the craft and sewing stores.

So the choice is yours. Have fun with the hunt and decision.

And, at the end of the day, may you have a new year that’s as fun and vibrant as this new year greeting card depicts.

How to draw simple silhoutte pattern

A silhouette is the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single color, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject. The interior of a silhouette is featureless, and the whole is typically presented on a light background, usually white, or none at all. The silhouette differs from an outline, which depicts the edge of an object in a linear form, while a silhouette appears as a solid shape. Silhouette images may be created in any visual artistic media, but was first used to describe pieces of cut paper, which were then stuck to a backing in a contrasting colour, and often framed.

From its original graphic meaning, the term silhouette has been extended to describe the sight or representation of a person, object or scene that is backlit, and appears dark against a lighter background. Anything that appears this way, for example, a figure standing backlit in a doorway, may be described as “in silhouette”. Because a silhouette emphasises the outline, the word has also been used in the fields of fashion and fitness to describe the shape of a person’s body or the shape created by wearing clothing of a particular style or period.

How to draw quilling pattern

How to draw quilling pattern

Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is rolled, looped, curled, twisted and otherwise manipulated to create shapes which make up designs to decorate greetings cards, pictures, boxes, eggs, and to make models, jewelry, mobiles etc. These items can all be used as thoughtfully designed gifts which many people would highly appreciate. Quilling starts with rolling a strip of paper into a coil and then pinching the coil into shapes that can be glued together. There are advanced techniques and different sized paper that are used to create 3D miniatures, abstract art, and quilled flowers among many things.

Today, It is seeing a resurgence in popularity with quillers (people who practice the art of quilling) on every continent and in every walk of life. No longer confined to the “upper classes”, this is a peoples art form and the beauty of the art is always expanding thanks to innovators and rapidly growing number of quillers. Quilling is great for all ages thanks to the simplicity of the techniques and how relaxing it is. The craft has become increasingly popular due to the low cost of the material. It is used to decorate wedding invitations, for Christmas, birth announcements, greeting cards, scrapbook pages, and boxes.

Quilling is relatively easy to learn compared to most other crafts, and with the resources available today, it can be learned by almost everyone. Basic quilling techniques can be learned almost anywhere and there are several videos online that can teach you how to start quilling. There are more exotic styles of quilling that aren’t commonly taught, but can be learned through books that teach the specific style you are looking for. Quilling is also a great craft for kids as it teaches them fine motor skills and is a great craft to train their hand-eye coordination. To see quilling used in the classroom, you can contact your child’s school district.

Tianjin Eye is a 120-metre (394 ft) tall giant Ferris wheel built above the Yongle Bridge (formerly Chihai Bridge), over the Hai Riverin Tianjin, China. It is claimed to be the only such wheel to have been constructed over a bridge.

Construction started in 2007, with completion of the main body on 18 December 2007, and the wheel opened to the public on 7 April 2008.

At the time of its completion, only the 135 m (443 ft) London Eye, 160 m (525 ft) Star of Nanchang, and 165 m (541 ft) Singapore Flyer were taller.

Tianjin Eye is one of four 120 m Ferris wheels in China, the other three being Changsha Ferris Wheel (completed 2004), Suzhou Ferris Wheel (completed 2009), and Zhengzhou Ferris Wheel (completed 2003). The only Chinese Ferris wheel with a greater height is the 160 m (525 ft) Star of Nanchang, which opened in 2006.

Tianjin Eye is electrically powered and has 48 passenger capsules, each able to carry 8 passengers, and takes 30 minutes to complete a rotation, giving a maximum capacity of 768 passengers per hour.

Draw koifish paper cutting

Draw koifish paper cutting

Learning it’s history helps to answer the question, “What do koi fish symbolize?”. By knowing koi’s long history, you can more easily understand why people revere this beautiful fish so deeply

Many of the attributes of the koi symbolize several lessons and even trials individuals often encounter in life. The koi fish has a powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by its ability to swim against currents and even travel upstream. Some of the characteristics associated with the koi include:

  • Good fortune
  • Success
  • Prosperity
  • Longevity
  • Courage
  • Ambition
  • Perseverance

Many of the above described symbolic meanings of koi fish stem from the Chinese legend of the Dragon Gate in which a koi fish swam upstream, through waterfalls and other obstacles to reach the top of the mountain. At the top of the mountain was the “Dragon Gate”. The legend says that when the koi finally reached the top, it became a dragon, one of the most auspicious creatures in Chinese culture.

Hi everyone,
Today I show you the way to make a love pop up card. You can see the card as image below
love_memory
To make this pop up card, firstly, you must have pattern. Please download free pattern here
You print that pattern to A4 paper (or paper you use to make card). Then please follow the step-by-step instructions below to make the card
– Step 1: Cutting outline pattern, you have many pieces (You can choose color for each piece). There is some diffirent from background piece to pattern because in pattern I divided background to 2 pieces (a half for A4 size)
love-memory-1
– Step 2: Put first layer on background
 love-memory-2
– Step 3: Put second layer to background
love-memory-3
– Step 4: Put some pieces together as this
love-memory-4
– Step 5: Put part from step 4 between the first and second layer, and glue

love-memory-6
– Step 7: Put tree and bench pieces into correct postitions
love-memory-7
– Step 8: (Important) Glue 2 small pieces between the tree and the second layer. It’s very difficult to fold flat your card without them. (pieces in red cycles) 
love-memory-8
Now you can finish your pop up card in your way. 
You can add more ivies, people or something to the card as you want. Here I give 2 examples: For love, and for F.A (just kidding xD )
