The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Before I start, could someone please suggest a name for this design?

I first saw this design at Penny Flowers and followed the link to Valita's Designs and Fresh Folds. The original designs are created with a popular die cutting set. As I am lazy I decided to use Inkscape to create a similar type of design to cut in one piece. I did ask permission from Valita who is the orginal designer.

- Valita's Designs and Fresh Folds - http://valitasfreshfolds.blogspot.com/2 ... ttice.html - http://valitasfreshfolds.blogspot.com/2 ... ronts.html - and a different design using the same principal http://valitasfreshfolds.blogspot.com/2 ... -card.html

I am only going to show the basic steps. If you prefer not to design your own shapes I would suggest you visit Penny Duncan's blog as Penny has designed a huge range of Shaplies that would be perfect for this project. http://pennyduncancreations.blogspot.co ... orial.html

Hi All

Can I just say that after seeing the above project I came up with this design, which does involve some Paper Weaving with the paper strips; now I'm wondering if there is an easier way hhmmmm. File can be purchased from the 2nd signature below.

They sure are pretty all of them

Oooo No I think I may have used the wrong wording calling it Paper Weaving, but I suppose I could use ribbon but it would come out differently from the way I have used the Paper strips; because the Hearts in the middle is to cover up the paper strip ends as shown in the picture below:
