I decide to pull out a few of my punches and team them up with the Fancy Pants Designs Happy Place Ephemera pack, Clique Kits: Journal Cards, flair, hemp twine and a few of the Fancy Pants Designs pattern papers. I wanted to get stuck into these packs and make an embellishment full of dimension and layers.
Let take a peek at my project.
“smile / sweet”
Start by selecting a few of the tabs, tags, arrows etc from the Fancy Pants Designs ephemera pack and a few from the Clique Kits journal pack and lay them out. Cut a few 1″ strips from the pattern papers.
Next select a few punches.
Punch out a few shapes from the pattern papers. Now all you need to do is start layering the strips of pattern papers and punched shapes, adding bits of the ephemera at the same time. Once you are happy with your placement staple. You can add more by cutting the tags in haft, adding glue to the ends and slide them in and under. Don’t forget to fan the layers, use your fingers to lift each piece. So that you see the layers.
and the end result!
I hope today was fun and you go and make a few of these for your next project. They are great on any type of project too. Thank you for popping in today and I look forward in sharing more creative things with you soon!
