Hello everyone and thank you for visiting.
I would like to start by saying thank you for all the support for the positivity journal I shared a few days ago. So many of you have been in touch. I promise I will post some more pages soon.
Now for today's offering, some decorations that can also be turned into cards if you want.
I first saw something similar on Pinterest and then decided to adapt it to what I had to hand.
These decorations are mainly made from die cuts cut from an empty cereal packet, a few scraps of DP and some little embellishments.
They are extremely simple to make and could of course be adapted to whatever die cuts or punches you may have in your collection. Here you can see some of the die cuts I used.
I cut two of each, glued them together with the printed side of the cereal packet on the inside and when dry gilded them with Treasure Gold in Pewter. You could of course also paint them in any colour you like, but I love the subtle metal glow of the gilding wax (hard to see from the photo). As you can see I also cut some out of DP. Once everything was cut and dry, all I had to do was layer them up together, using a mix of glue dots and hot glue, attach some embellishments and some silver coloured string and that was it.
Here are some close ups:
The metal embellishments that I used in between the die cuts were bright silver, too bright and not vintage enough for my liking, so I coloured them with Espresso alcohol ink.
If you are not really into Christmas decorations, these can also be turned into cards, simply by mounting them with a piece of mounting foam or some hot glue. Below is an example of that.
We were hit by a hurricane last night, but luckily no major damage was done. I hope anyone else that was hit by the storm, is safe and well!!!
Thank you for visiting today and have a creative time!
