It’s National Stationery Week!

We’re so excited for National Stationery Week here at Crafter’s Companion! We were absolutely thrilled to be asked to host one day of the campaign, as there’s such a connection between craft and pretty stationery – they’re all about sending your love and making someone’s day a little brighter, whether that’s with a handmade card or a heartfelt note.

Our focus for the day is constructing your own handmade stationery storage and items for around your craft room, and we’ll be sharing a series of beautiful projects throughout the day for you to try your hand at.

We’d love to see your makes, so make sure you share them with us using the hashtags #getcrafty and #natstatweek!

You will need

Brilliant Basics digital download
Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens
Spectrum Noir Metallic Markers Precious Metals set
white cardstock
Collall All Purpose Glue
white 8x8” frame

Tools

scalpel & cutting mat

How to make

1 Cut an 8x8” square from the white cardstock. Using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen, freely colour from the top-left corner to the bottom-right corner - set aside and leave to dry.

2 Hand-draw the ‘crafty’ word outline onto white cardstock and carefully cut out with a scalpel. Colour then cut out the word using a gold Metallic Marker & clear Sparkle pen.

3 Print out two patterned papers and two co-ordinating plain papers from the Brilliant Basics collection.

From the patterned papers, cut two feather shapes for the fletching, carefully snip the edges of the ‘feathers’ from top to bottom to add texture. Colour over with clear Sparkle pen.

4 Cut out two long strips of plain cardstock for the arrow shaft and colour them with the gold Metallic Markers and glue them onto the front of the feathers.

5 Cut out two heart-shaped arrowheads from the plain Brilliant Basics papers. Colour over with clear Sparkle pen and glue onto the end of the arrow shaft.

6 Take the clear Sparkle pen and colour a small square of card - leave to dry for a few seconds, then rub it all over the 8x8” square from Step 1, to add that extra touch of sparkle.

7 Glue the 2 arrows onto the 8x8” square, crossing over each other to form an ‘X’ shape. Take the word outline, glue and place it over the arrows in your preferred position.

8 Leave to dry for a few minutes and then insert inside your frame.

Our Metallic Markers also look fantastic when used to decorate your own handmade storage for notebooks, journals and magazines, like this gorgeous project by our in-house editor, Natalie Helyer.
