Do you need to list some points? I bet you do. Are they short? Are they long? Maybe they’re short with a little description each. Or maybe you think bulleted lists could be way cooler. In this second post of the Crafty Hacks series I have just the thing for you. Some of you may recall my first post, where we made gorgeous image-based buttons. This time I’m using pure blocks for my designs.
Can’t I just use built-in bulleted lists?
Absolutely. It’ll be quick and easy and pleasantly indented. The sort of list your mother would approve of.
So this new method could be described as… sexy?
Well no. We’re banging away on computers here people. Nothing we do should be described as sexy. But it is quite cool, or whatever the kids say these days. And at the end of the day, we’re just going to make a good-looking block and duplicate it, so it’s simple to do.
Get on with it then, I have other unsexy things to accomplish today
Right. For the purposes of this example, I’m going to assume you have 3 items to list. 3 is a good number for things in a list. It’s enough to need listing (just) but nobody is going to fall asleep reading it.
How to make beautiful lists:
My little list ended up looking like this:
You can make the block as complicated or simple as you like. For instance, by adding another Padding Block with a subtly different colour for the heading to sit on.
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed making it. Please let me know in the comments if you’d like to know something specific or if you’re stuck in any part of the process.
