Do you spend hours on a scrapbook? Are you a creative card maker? Are you always making ATCs? Then this is the subreddit for you.

Post your latest projects, get help and inspiration and learn about the art of papercrafting.

Some rules:

1) This subreddit is for paper crafting. Primarily, we are aimed at building a community where scrapbookers, card makers and other artistically creative paper users, rather than those who make art out of paper (r/papercraft is more appropriate for that content). We encourage creativity in this subreddit and welcome seeing all different kinds of project.

2) Feel free to post links to your blog or youtube channel but please don't spam it to death. General rule of thumb - is your previous post shown in the last two pages of the 'new' tab? If so, then post it in there. If not, feel free to create a new post.

3) If you encounter any problems in the sub at all please immediately report them to a mod. Members should always be kind and pleasant to other posters. We operate a 'three strikes and you're out' rule to banning from the sub. If you have a problem with another member, please email a mod. Constructive criticism is allowed but must be requested. If it is not requested, please ask if they would like to hear your thoughts first.

We request that readers think and read the whole topic before they downvote anything. Downvoting is discouraged.

4) We have weekly 'rant', 'success' and 'goals' threads running. Please don't post content for these threads outside of this area. If you can't find the thread for that week, it may not have been made yet. Ask a mod.

5) Enjoy!

Little help for a shifting drawing?

Hello Everyone!

I'm thinking of making a drawing for my bf for Valentine's day, and I figured it would be cool if there was a string that if pulled, made the clothing shift into something different, like in those books with moving parts 🤔

Do you people have any tutorials to make this happen, please?

Looking for a Valentine's Day project and/or gift to make?

Hey everyone! I'm new here and so excited to find another community of paper crafters. I design printables for journals and other paper crafts on Etsy and also have a YT Channel where I teach you how to make handmade and heartfelt items. It's low-key and like sitting at my craft table with me. :) I have just under 200 items in my Etsy shop and 275 videos on my channel. I would love to help you dive in to the world of handmade paper crafted gifts. This pic shows my most recent Valentine printable kit, Steampunk Love! Thanks for taking a look!

Weird request that isn't exactly crafting

so this is not exactly a crafting question but the people here are probably the only ones that would know the answer to this.

the mail center at work sometimes needs to cut the address out of a envelope to tape it to a larger box when a mail piece is too big for our largest envelope does a paper punch exist that is like a 4 inch by 3 inch rectangle or something close to it so they could just punch in out instead of cutting it with scissors since they have a lot of them to do .

Thank you for your time and I'm sorry for the somewhat off topic request

Maintenance for a very old Silhouette Cameo

I have just found my original silhouette cameo in the basement from 13 or 14-ish years ago. It is the original first version of the cameo long before any of the other machines. I'm incredibly happy to have found it as I had assumed it was let go in a garage sale a long time ago. It was stored in an old box labeled "grandma's antique Christmas ornaments" this whole time. LOL

My question is, when I try to use it what maintenance should I do to it before I plug it in? I assume there is probably an old plastic or rubber belt in it somewhere that needs to be replaced. Where do I find information and parts to go about doing that for such an old machine?

Thanks for any help 🙂

Recommendations for a "Glow In The Dark" paper for a young artist?

Trying to help my mother find a glow in the dark paper, a "Rechargeable Luminous paper" not requiring a blacklight, or simply neon colored is how it was described to me, a type of paper from her youth that she would like to share a paper crafting activity with my niece.

Possible there is a good source for a glow in the dark paper like that?

Something that has some substantial thickness to it, so it is fully opaque, and maybe closer to the consistency of cardstock that could stand on its own with small shapes as opposed to thin almost transparent paper.

Is thus the right place to request help finding such an item?

Possible there is a good place to ask for help locating such a thing if not?

Thanks in advance for any help locating something that fits the description well.

Best way to add rivets to papercrafts for rotating pieces?

I am looking for a way to attach a rotating point to a paper wheel. Like this- two circles attached in the middle that can spin independently of one another.

The best solution I have found is to make a plastic rivet with the plastic stem of a cotton swab and a hot iron, but there has to be a better and more professional way. I know a paper brad would do the job, but that's pretty bulky for my taste. Also, if possible, I would like to use both sides. Any ideas? My google skills are failing me.

Synthetic paper alternative

I don't know where to ask this but I guess I could find a few experts on paper here. Hi, I have a small business, and one of our products is an education notebook for kids. We are currently doing it in a way that we print main pages and laminate it. Then, we print shapes on an A4 paper. Then we cutout shapes, then laminate them in A4 laminating plastic and then cutout shapes from laminated plastic. (You can see a detail of the final product in the picture) That is a long process, and we spend too much time in creating the notebook. I was looking for an alternative. The most important thing is that kids cannot tear it and that it is waterproof. I found synthetic paper, but it is too expensive. Is there any alternative or suggestion you know about that can help me? I will be very thankful.
