This time of year always has me thinking about
gifts to give for Christmas. When I received
the beautiful Canvas Corp Painter's Tray, I knew it
would be the perfect gift for my mom filled with pictures
of my kids and beautiful Authentique Original
After printing and placing my photos, I began decorating the
top three panels with Original Papers, Stickers and
die-cut flowers from Original Papers. For the flowers I used the "Rolled Daisy" die by mftstamps.com. With Authentique Papers you don't have to worry about flimsy flowers!
From the Canvas Corp Denim Sheets, I hand-cut two large
hearts and backed each one with cotton batting. I then used
my sewing machine to stitch the two pieces together. You
could also stitch the denim to a heavy chipboard or felt if
you don't have batting on hand.
I glued the burlap banners from Canvas Corp, directly onto the frame using a fabric glue. A few thick foam dots were added in places where the banners may bend.
I love digging through years and years worth of stash and finding just the right chipboard letters...these were just the right size for the banners :) Now we're finished and all ready for gift-giving!
Merry Christmas, Mom!
Supplies: Authentique Paper- Original Secure Paper; Independent Paper and Details 12x12 Stickers
To start this project, I stretched one layer (I used a seam-ripper to tear the two sheets apart) of a 12x12 Denim Fabricpage (CVS2196) over a 5x7" flat canvas that I had lying around. I used spray glue to adhere the fabric sheet to the canvas. Before the entire piece of denim was stuck to the canvas, I cut the corners of the denim so that it layed as flat as possible.
The flower is just a Silhouette cut from the Artistic paper, using Memento inks to add more definition on the petals. This could very easily be done without a die cut machine. The scissors are also a Silhouette cut, with a brad that looks like a screw. The perfect addition to make the scissors look more realistic! I then centered the "Keep Calm and Craft On" sentiment under the scissors.
The leaves of the flower are a Jute Mini Rectangle (CVS1159) that has been cut into a petal shape. Since the Rectangle was doubled on itself, I was able to easily get two leaves. I then added a couple of Details sticker and another brad.
To finalize the project, I added faux stitching using my white pen. The stitching added just the little extra to make the denim mimic the Original papers.
