Creative Paper Concepts
Welcome to the very first Creative Paper Concepts. Every Wednesday, I'll post some creation that has to do with paper. Which means that as long as it has paper anywhere on it, it's fair game for a Wednesday post.
Today's project is a very easy to make wall hanging. Somewhere I bought something that had these cute hangers on them and I took them off. I couldn't bear to part with them, so they've been taking up space for many years. Just like fine wine, they are now of ready for consumption after their little aging process.
2 coordinating designer papers
Small black tassel
8" 1/2" ribbon
5 1/2" 2" sheer ribbon
1 large flower
1 medium flower
6 small flowers
6" tiny gold open cording
Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
Creamy Brown Color Box Chalk Ink
QuicKutz Magnolia font
Outside dimensions are 6" square, the inside designer paper is 5 3/4" square. Check out the photo for a closeup shot of the corner punch used. It creates an opening into which you can slip the inner designer paper. Also the shear ribbon that is on the lower portion of the piece. I also layered the medium flower under a small flower for this embellishment. In the closeup, you'll notice that I sparingly applied glitter glue to the edges of some of the petals of the small flowers. Adhere your flowers with glue dots - nothing could be easier.
This flower came just the way it is. Isn't it scrumptious. I've been dying to use it and finally the opportunity presented itself. Stick a few smaller flowers around the large one and you have a great piece for a corner.
I punched two holes into the paper background so that when I ran a ribbon through it would hold the hanger in place on the backside. Make sure your holes are far enough into the paper so that the end pieces don't show on the front.
This tassel had lost it's hanger which made it perfect for a glue dot.
Attach your die cut letters and enjoy. Be Creative! To celebrate the new Creative Paper Concepts, I've got blog candy to give away. I have another hanger! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by next Wednesday and by random drawing, someone will receive the hanger in the mail! Just tell what you'd do with the hanger.
