You’ll find a fantastic selection of summery free templates in the collection from issue 141 – including an ice cream template set! What could be better on a hot, sunny day?
Use the ice cream template to create an interactive waterfall card, with a little help from our handy video tutorial, then simply match with a paper doily and some pretty patterned papers.
This waterfall card takes minutes to make but it’s a such a fun design that will work well for summer birthdays or just a little note to say ‘hello’ to someone special. You can use a dotty embossing folder to add texture to the cone section of the ice cream, and you could even use glitter or small pieces of paper confetti as sprinkles on top of your design!
If that wasn’t enough to quench your thirst for crafty projects, you can also create a cute paper cactus to adorn your home. Download the cactus templates below then follow our simple step-by-step guide to construct your paper house plant. There’s no watering required, so this is the perfect project (or gift) for anyone who isn’t particularly green fingered!
