Happy Monday! I am slowly getting back into the swing of things since being struck with a horrible cold/flu last week. We all got our flu shots this year, but whatever we have been fighting sure feels a lot like the flu - fever, chills, cough, headache, stuffy head... you get the idea. This is a long weekend for us and it's been great to have the extra time to do nothing.
I wanted to share some more projects I made for the Therm O Web booth at CHA. Their theme was "Winter Wedding" and they asked all of the design team to create snowflakes to hang from the ceiling. These were a few of the ones I created - started with $1 wooden snowflakes from the craft store and used a SuperStik glue stick to adhere paper to both sides.
Assorted brads were used to attach the flowers to the front.
The back was covered with pages from an old book (see last week's post for a tutorial on how to make these into flowers).
It's sort of difficult to see in the photo, but I also sprayed the back with Pink Glitter Dust. I love the shimmer it adds, while still letting the design on the paper show through. Zots were used to attach the snowflakes (which conveniently cover up the backs of the brads).
Here are a couple of smaller versions... they are decorated on both sides.
Another project I created for Therm O Web is this double-sided banner. This is a hybrid project - the letters and papers are digital; they were printed, cut, and strung into a banner. I used a shadow behind each letter to make them look more like stickers or chipboard and added real gem brads on either side of the "o". The banner sat atop the giant wedding cake they had on display in the booth.
Hello and thanks for dropping by! I have another step-by-step tutorial to share today over on the Therm O Web blog... if you would like to see how I turned pages from this book that I found at a used book store for $1
into one of these...
Please pop over to their blog and say hello. I really liked the way these flowers looked as part of a wedding cake topper created for the Therm O Web booth at CHA. I think you'll be surprised at how easy these are to make.
While you are there, be sure to check out the tutorial I have for making the roses shown in the photo above out of inexpensive coffee filters.
Hey there! Would you like to learn how to turn one of these...
into one of these?
There are so many uses for these inexpensive flower embellishments... I used them on a wedding cake topper created for the Therm O Web booth at CHA. Check out my post on their blog this morning for a step-by-step tutorial (and don't be afraid to say hello while you're there!).
The last of my CHA projects went in the mail yesterday, so now I'm ready to start tackling my to-do list for everything I have neglected these last few weeks. Today I have a post on the Crafts 'n things blog with more details on these two cards as well as a great giveaway from my friends at Therm O Web.
Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing holiday. It was so nice to be able to spend time with all of my guys just hanging out, watching old movies, playing games, and catching up with friends and family. Now it is time to get back into the swing of things so I have put together a teaser of projects I will be posting here over the coming weeks.
