Thanks so much for stopping by- especially those participating in todays Tina Wenke and MarkerPop Blog Hop. This is so much fun!
All of you amazing designers have been making so many beautiful projects
with our stamps and papers. I am truly soooo GRATEFUL!
Since I don’t have a die cut machine yet, I decided to keep my project simple- using hand drawn shapes as templates. I’ve included a digital pdf version of the shapes for you to drag and drop if you would like to try this project yourself J
First, I traced then cut all the shapes used from the papers this required 4 sheets of paper from the Holiday Combination Pack. Here’s a list of the papers I used;
- Gifts (Small Heart)
- Greenery (Small Flower)
- Rejoice (Leaves)
- Holly (Medium Heart)
Next, I traced the large heart shape twice on the piece of tan chipboard which comes with the paper pack to make the front and back of the heart basket. After I cut the chipboard, I used spray glue to attach the medium heart first to the board then the small heart next and added a stitching pattern with deep red color pencil.
Then I started on the holiday flower – I stitched all three layers of the flower with the button in the center to hold the flower together. Finally I added pieces of foam tape in between the flower layers to give them dimension and added more foam tape on the bottom of the flower to attach it to the hearts and did the same with the leaves.
I glued the bottom half of the chipboard hearts together with hot glue to make the basket. I curled black wire together with red beads to make the handle. After this, I attached the wire to the heart. I did this by poking 2 small holes into the chipboard with a push pin, pushed the wire through and twisted it back around at both ends.
And the final touch was to tie a green raffia bow onto the left side of the heart right where the wire was connected to the board. Added some candy canes and I was finished:)
Materials Used for the Holiday Hanging Heart Basket;
-1 12x12 piece of Tan Chipboard (used to keep the paper pack flat)
-Red button and thread
-Black wire and red beads
-Green paper raffia
