A Challenge – To Be Inspired!
(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities Blog Event)
When I held the Organisation Celebration weekend, I left the ‘Challenge to be Inspired’ until the end, but I’ve moved it right up to the beginning this time! This way you can start bookmarking or pinning the projects that inspire you, and begin using the inspiration to make some projects of your own.
- Fold a 6″ x 12″ piece of white cardstock in half to make a 6″ x 6″ card blank.
- Cut a 3.5″ x 5¾” piece of blue ‘Chevron’ (that’s what it’s called, but I actually used the lattice patterned side!) patterned paper, and a 2″ x 5¾” piece of ‘Ephemera Frames’ paper, both from the My Mind’s Eye All is Bright 6×6 Pad. Ink the edges with red ink.
- Adhere the ‘Ephemera Frames’ paper to the bottom of your card a ¼” from the base. Cut two strips of red chevron All is Bright Decorative Tape to 5¾” wide, and stick them at the bottom and top of the ‘Ephemera Frames’ paper.
- Mount a ‘Joyeux Noel’ sentiment form the All is Bright sticker sheet onto a piece of white card, fussy cut around it, and ink the edges. Adhere a red Rhinestone to each end, and stick the sentiment to the card with 3D foam tape.
- Mount 3 cardstock sticker hexagons on to white card. Work out where they will be placed on the blue paper and draw a pencil dot at the top. Pierce holes with a paper piercer, ⅛” apart, until you are ⅛” from the top. Stitch through these holes with red-and-white bakers twine.
- Adhere your hexagons at the bottom of the twine, like baubles. Add a Rhinestone at the join on each. Mount the blue paper onto the card with 3D foam tape, overlapping the bottom of the blue paper on top of the red chevron tape. Mail the card to someone you love this Christmas!
- Stitch some twine onto a project
- Make a card with a sentiment that’s in a language other than your own
- Use washi tape or patterned paper as thin bands repeated on a project
