- Use one sheet of 12×12 paper for the middle. Then, cut 2 4×12 strips for each side.
- Apply Continuous Lines to the front of blue pattern so 1 inch of the paper ended up behind the middle piece for stability. The final size is 18×12.
- Finally, use Memory Book Glue Dots to attach strips of paper and cut outs (My Mind’s Eye cut outs used here) to the front.
Candy’s Tip: When working with punch out die cuts, use a sanding block (I love the one by Tim Holtz) to take off the little paper nubbies where the die cut was attached to sheet of paper.
- I used a leftover piece of paper, folded and scored.
- I then used one of the labels from the die cut sheet by My Mind’s Eye, attached with Ultra Thin Glue Dots, along with a portion of the die cut border, attached with Mini Glue Dots, and a star attached with a Pop Up Glue Dots for extra dimension.
I tied raffia around the napkin. Then, I punched out one of the die cuts from My Mind’s Eye. I added a brad to the center and then attached it to the raffia with a Craft Glue Dot.
The jar is my favorite part of the collection. It started life as a mini milk jar filled with Prima flowers.
- I cut a strip of paper that would fit the jar, applied Continuous Lines to one edge of the paper and then carefully wrapped it around the jar, securing with more Continuous Lines at the end.
- I used the same technique to add the red star border.
- For the decorative edge, I attached Mini Glue Dots at each of the red dots and then wrapped it around the jar. I added a few stars from the cut-out sheet as well.
- Finally, I took another cut out, added a few brads and attached with Craft Glue Dots.
- I filled the jar with some decorative rocks left over from another project.
I wanted them to be able to spin in the breeze, so after a bit of online research and trial and error, this is what I came up with...Click Here For Pinwheel Tutorial.
