Celebrate the Pantone Colour of the Year with our free Printable mobile February 09, 2016 13:20
Pantone have for many years been at the front of colour trends and their Colour of the Year is always super influential. Last year's Marsala, a sort of reddy earthy winey brown nailed the trend for richer, colours, particularly in interiors. This year they've embraced the pastel trend that has been a firm crafty favourite from some time ... in fact they liked it so much they couldn't pick just one colour. For the first time ever they've gone for two colours - Serenity and Rose Quartz
We rather love this combination so we've made you a downloadable diamond mobile to celebrate. Get the printable here.... sadly we can't guarantee your printer will get the colour just right, so if you want to splash out a bit use a Matt Photo Paper for the best effect. Here's a tutorial on how to assemble it
Thanks to Hannah Miles from Utensils0 for putting the mobile together for us!

Meet Hannah from Utensils0 and make a paper pineapple August 27, 2015 16:24
We're really excited to be teaming up with Hannah Miles, the paper illustrator behind Utensils0.
Hannah's going to be passing on some of her amazing paper skills in our Christmas card workshop in December, but to whet your appetite try out this fab paper pineapple tutorial.
|You will need
• Scalpel or scissors
• Paper (200gsm or less) printout of the pineapple template Download it here
• Glue or double-sided tape
|Print out your pineapple template and cut around the shapes. Don’t cut off the white tabs, you’ll need them to assemble your pineapple.
TIP: Standard printer paper will give a thinner but easier to fold pineapple. Lightweight card will give you a sturdier fruit. We recommend you use paper or card that is below 200gsm
|Fold all lines on the pineapple – make sure the colour is on the outside! You can use a ruler to guide you as you fold the paper. It helps you fold straighter lines especially if you are using thicker paper|
|Glue or tape the white tabs, and stick them to the back of yellow tabs to create the curved sections at the top and bottom. Don’t tape up the long side of the pineapple yet|
|Carefully glue or tape the tabs on the hexagon base and stick it on – tuck the white tabs inside the body of the pineapple.|
|To close the pineapple body glue or tape last tabs. Tuck them inside and stick them in position. TIP: This will be a bit fiddly, it’s best to put your hand in from the top so you can start at the bottom and work your way back up to the top|
|To make the leaves, glue along the bottom of the leaves. Then start at the largest end and roll the leaves, so that they stick as you go.
TIP: Roll the leaves so that the bottom gets slighter lower with each roll, so it looks nice and like the pictures. Once the leaves are stuck you can curl each leaf between your fingers giving them a nice spiky shape.
|Pop the leaves inside the hole at the top of your pineapple to complete the look!|
