After moving to the UK from Pakistan 13 years ago, crafting helped Tania Ahmed settle in. "In Pakistan, you can't easily get paper crafting supplies like you can in the UK," she says. "So I did embroidery, jewellery making, beadwork and sewing as a creative outlet. When I moved to the UK, I discovered YouTube, and through that, the world of card making and papercraft. I was really curious, found a shop near me and was able to buy some supplies online. So that was kind of my way of settling into the country as well."
Here, Tania, a crafter and creative business owner who specialises in handmade cards and teaches mixed media online classes, shares her best tips and explains how to make cards using a Canon PIXMA TS7440 printer.
