Card Models

I couldn’t talk about it before Valentines Day because I wanted it to be a surprise for Rockelle but I built a model of cupid that flaps its wings that I downloaded from this website. You print it out on a heavyweight cardstock (regular office supply stores are carrying 110 lb. (!!) cardstock these days) and then cut it out and paste it together. I won’t try and make it sound simple, it wasn’t, I probably spent five hours working on it in total but I wasn’t working like my life depended on it that whole time.
If you are interested in more material on card models I would direct you to the awesome Card FAQ. It collects tons of information about acquiring models to make and techniques for making them.
The other thing I worked on for Valentines Day was my first book. I’ve done a lot of paper projects and I’ve thought about doing a book before but this is my first attempt to actually do one. It has stitched signatures, paper covers, endpapers, the works. I’ll scan and photograph it and the really cool Valentine that Rockelle gave me and put both up on EphemeraStudios.com sometime soon. That’s the site that Rockelle and I intend to use for our various art projects.
