6 soft craft projects to try this winter

As you can probably tell, we are huge papercraft enthusiasts at docrafts. We love experimenting with different dies and stamps within our cards and scrapbook layouts, but we also enjoy transferring these techniques to our soft craft projects! If you're looking to change up your craft routine, why not have a go at one of our fabric favourites?

This monochrome cosmetic pouch is so handy for makeup, nail varnish, and storing any other extras that might otherwise spill in your handbag and it also looks super-chic!

These days, we have so many different documents and cards that it can be difficult to keep track of everything.
