Trends in papercrafting - header image

What are the trends in papercrafting this winter? We have found four things which is trending in USA and Europe right now.

1) Flowers made of Crepe Paper

Especially in Denmark there has been a growing trend making flowers of crepe paper and there are Facebook groups which are dedicated to this wonderful papercraft. But also in other parts of Europe and in the US making flowers of crepe paper are becoming increasingly popular.


The beautiful flowers you see in these photos are all made by Tracey from England. She is a local craft teacher and papercraft designer: Tracey’s Creative Place (Instagram: lalkygirl)

2) Die Cut Flowers as main motifs

Using dies to make flowers have been around in cardmaking for a long time. But often the die cut flowers have been used for decoration and not for the main motif. That is about to change looking at the cards which are posted on social media right now. Several cardmakers, especially from the US, are making lovely die cut flower arrangements as the main motifs on their cards.

These cards are made by Bette from Connecticut, US. The dies which have been used for making the flowers on these cards are from Spellbinders.

3) Fairytale motifs on blended backgrounds

Fairytale motifs on blended backgrounds are popular in Norway this winter. This trend is probably somewhat caused by the beautiful stamps from the Welsh manufacturer Lavinia Stamps.

These three cards are made by Mona in Norway and you can read more about Mona and her wonderful paper projects in this interview: Scrappeintervjuet: Mona fra Norge (use the orange translate button in the lower left corner to translate the interview into your preferred language).

4) Versatile Bubble Spots

One thing that I have seen a lot around social media the last month are cards made by using the “Bubble Spot Die”. This is a versatile die from Colifwang and I have seen it used as champagne bubbles, spotlights and on the card below as sparks coming from a flower.


This lovely card featuring the “Bubble Spot Die” is made by Carole from United Kingdom.

On this fun card the “Bubblespot Die” has been use for making the splash coming out of a bottle of champagne. This card is made by Annice from Arkansas, US.
