With all the entries for the MOO Award 2012 being so creative, our creative department wanted to get in on the action too! So we set about designing a special trophy for the winner.
After some research, I found trophies were generally made out of plastic, metal or glass, which just didn’t seem right seeing as we just love paper so much! So I wanted to do something a little different, and create a trophy made entirely out of paper…
I spent a couple of weeks drawing and testing out concepts, before narrowing down our favorite three concepts to just one. I then set about figuring out how …Continue reading this article…
A couple of weeks ago, we shared a crafty piece of inspiration for your left-over Christmas Cards and showed you how to create your very own crafty star. So we thought we’d continue the theme of home-made decorations made from printed products, and this time I was inspired by Chinese paper lanterns, and I realised they sort of look like baubles, too!
This craft is really straightforward to make; you don’t even need any glue, so it’s less messy! You’ll just need 2 greeting cards, a hole-puncher, a pencil, a ruler, 2 paper fasteners, 1 piece of string.
Here’s how to …Continue reading this article…
Last month we announced the winners of our first ever MOO Award. There were only two winners, but there were so many wonderful entries that we thought we’d highlight some of the entries that really caught the judges’ eyes.
Benevolent is a charity that allows groups of people to donate to an individual in need – to help them raise money to fulfill something specific. Your one donation might not be enough, but by using crowdfunding a difference can be made in low-income individuals’ lives. Very cool.
Our favorite part? They’re perfect for any holiday or occasion, all-year round.
Haven’t sent your Holiday Cards yet? Don’t worry, all our Holiday Cards are on sale now through December.
Next up in our Holiday Card designer series is Christopher Simmons from Mine™. Known for for identities, books, packaging and interactive collateral, Christopher wowed us with his gorgeous snowflakes and show-stopping color. Makes us want to send an entire pack of his Unique Haiku cards to everyone on our list!
Their lovely designs, titled Kaleidoscope Holiday, are packed with intricate details in bright, bold colors. From snow globes to airplanes to wine glasses, they’ve taken universal symbols of things that make the holidays happy and transformed them into magical work of art. Enjoy!
Last month we showcased some innovative Christmas and Holiday Cards that MOO Creative Director Matt G tracked down. This got us thinking; there must be hundreds of wonderful designs out there in the big wide world that Matt simply wouldn’t have time to track down by himself. So we asked our friends on Facebook and Twitter to show us what they’d seen or created.
We got so many responses that there’s simply not enough blog space to hold them all! We’ve picked just a selection of designs that really caught our eye. Without further ado, here are our top picks:
We loved …Continue reading this article…
Have you ever wondered what to do with your Holiday Cards once you’ve taken them down from your mantle-piece? Or wondered what to do with the left over cards from your pack after you’ve mailed all your friends and clients?
This star is made purely from Christmas Cards and a little glue, could make a great addition to your festive decorations and even squashes flat without breaking, so it can be sent to friends in the mail as an alternative greeting or crafty gift.
Here’s how to make your very own Holiday Card star. We’ve made the template available …Continue reading this article…
