  1. Just got this book for Christmas and it’s awesome – can’t wait to get making – there are some fantastic ideas! I especially love the sentiments from the intro about the making and creation being the best bit. Thanks.

  2. This is so creative! I love how you share your artwork with everyone by providing the JPGs. Your step by steps are just as ingenious and exciting to read. I’ve got to get your book!



    • Thanks Pat for taking the time to comment, it’s really nice to hear the artwork is appreciated. Yes, you’ll find many more projects in my book (67 to be precise!), with loads of hand illustrated projects and printable artwork! All the best. Scott

  3. Thanks for the templates! My son did a great job coloring and picking out the perfect medals. You covered all bases with the categories. My son and I were out of town and had them hidden for my husband to find!

    • That’s great Holly, I’m so pleased you were able to put them to use – I hope Dad enjoyed his day! Thanks for taking the time to comment. Scott :)

  4. Hi

    I printed out the .pdf but all the medals are filled, instead of having blanks to make my own.

    Please can you help?


    • Hi Daisy, The blank medals are at the bottom of the medal sheet, I provided 5 different styles, so you might need to print the page twice to get at least 6 medals to fill the ribbon. I hope you can find them. Scott :)

    • Hi Audy – Thanks for the comment – I’ve emailed the files to you as JPGs rather than as PDF files, hopefully you can open and print them. All the best. Scott :)
