Simple explanations of the meanings of some of the terms you may come across when paper crafting with children. This list is evolving as I come across and use terms that I think are relevant for here. Let me know if you think there are any that I should add!
Brad – see Split Pin below.
Decoupage – Uses cut out images that are glued to a surface, usually an object, and then covered with coats of vanish or lacquer. Découpage comes from the French word découper, ‘to cut out’.
Paper Filigree – see Quilling below.
Paper Tole – A 3-dimensional picture is created from a number of copies of the same 2-dimensional image. Parts are cut from the prints and layered up to create the final image.
Pipe Cleaner – see Chenille Stick.
Photomontage – A collage made up of photos, or parts of photos. These are often made digitally now.
Thanks Kath, delighted that you have joined us:-). The newsletter will be on its way soon I hope, and I am sure you will find lots of things great for making with the children at church as well as your own cards.
Just joined your site and having looked through I am thrilled so far at what I have seen. I do hope your newsletters will come through and I will enjoy. I am a ‘young’pensioner, but love making crafty things and my own cards, so I am sure your site will benefit me. I have just chosen the snake to make with children at my Church for Mothers Day, particularly the boys. Thank you Kath
