{Tutorial} Home Decor Project

Home Decor Project by Marion A. Wybranietz

This is what I need for my creation:

Image
Cardstock (Not to light!), Vellum, punch, dies, cord, pan pastel, distress ink, 
water spritzer

I cut four templates with a Sizzix die; you can cut any shape, such as a rectangle, 
an arch, just anything!

Image

I applied distress ink .....

Image

.... and “spritzed and flicked” it with water …..

Image

….. all dried up now!

Image

I cut some “holes” into the top, you can use any die or punch, such as flowers, 
snowflakes, circles etc. 

Image

I applied Pan Pastel to the vellum …..

Image

….. punched circles …..

Image

….. and glued them to the back of the template.

Image

Now it’s time for the decoration. I cut a fence and as and afterthought also 
some grass,

Image

which I glued together …..

Image

….. and adhered to the template, creating a little “belly”!

Image

I fixed all four templates with a tool (clamp) and punched the holes. 
This way they will all be on the right position!

Image

Done ;)

Image

I added the birds and the butterflies (also an afterthought) …. 

Image

….. and tied all templates together with a cord. I always use a pen or something 
similar in between, this way my “hinges” can still move and I don’t ruin the sides 
of my templates!

Image

A little present for a loved one, a little take along for a friend, or just put it on 
the mantel or on the terrace in Summer, that`s where I keep mine ;)

Image

Can’t wait for night to come ……

Image

Thanks so much for following me through the journey of 18 pictures. I am still 
a beginner with tutorials!
