Summer Papercraft Sampler

It has been a while since I shared some of my papercraft samplers- the last one I did was this Winter themed one and so I needed one for the other seasons.

Here in New Zealand we are in the middle of summer, so it was only fair that my next item be a Summer Papercraft Sampler.

This was a great way to use up some seasonal scraps I had stashed away, plus I love the colours together as they really remind me of summer. Here is the finished product:

The squares are mounted on white cardstock at 12"x12", then the decorative paper is 11"x11"and the yellow cardstock is 10.5"x10.5". Each white square is 2.5x2.5", with the inner squares at 2.25" x 2.25".

And here it is hanging up in the frame in my entranceway.

My favourite squares are the sun with sunglasses and the pinwheel- do you have a favourite square?

This was a lot easier to get into than my Winter one, as this is the third one I created and I am now more organised with creating each square. I will have another themed Papercraft Sampler to share with you in February.

Linking up with Show and Tell and The Memory Nest.
