This project has a fun 3D effect, coated with a solid resin to hold it in shape. It is fairly easy and fun to do.
Ice Resin can be purchased at most craft stores or online.
Whenever I find random items in my garage or a garage sale I like to see what I can do with them. For this project I use a mesh joint tape to add some fun texture to the board. For the bigger board I doubled the tape for a thicker frame. You could also slice the tape in half lengthwise for thinner frames.
The paper I used was Roycycled Treasures Fall Pumpkins. There are so many large and small pieces on this paper that you could make several projects with just one sheet! I made a large art board, a small art board, and still have scraps left over for another project.
This project is a combination of several recent products, projects, and videos I have done recently, plus a little three-dimensional fun! In the most recent video, learn how to make one of these 3D birds, and add it to a cloche board or anything you have! Tips, template, and tutorial below!
I do a lot of paper folding projects! This one is not too difficult. In our video tutorial you can follow along.
What I like about paper bows for gift decorating is they can be recyclable, compositable, or just less waste that big fabric or nylon ribbon style bows. I also like that you can make them any color, design, or theme to match your gifts or presents!
These bows are not only ideal for embellishing gifts, but can be used on buntings, place settings, wall decorations, cards, or wall art.
We have having fun “filling” all these cloches! For this project I wanted to make mine more three dimensional looking. I used one of the Dollar Tree boards I have used for a few projects lately and I tweaked how I used the cloche stencil.
For my pumpkins, I just drew and water colored them on water-color paper, layering them as I drew to a size a little wider and shorter than the cloche.
You can do the same, or find an image online, in a magazine, or almost anything! Go beyond pumpkins. You can do fruit, flowers, shapes, almost any image you like that is just a bit longer and a bit shorter than the cloche will work.
For the background I drew a few more pumpkins. You can do the same for your background. Use the same image, duplicate it, and cut out some of the items (fruit, pumpkins, flowers, etc.).
Use a heavy, quick drying adhesive for the tabs. Be sure to attach and adhere as close to the fold and edge as possible.
Fun little turkeys for your fall or Thanksgiving table! Use them as place settings, food labels, or just fun decorations!
Download the free Turkey template and follow the video.
We have made a few other projects using many of these ideas and concepts. Here I combine them to make this neat stationary scroll that you can keep together as a journal or cut apart as individual stationary pieces. Look below for some of the previous projects we have done using some of the same inspiration and concepts.
This is also a great project to use up your SCRAPS!
If you have some old sentimental envelopes or postcards, if you find some in your attic or local antique store, or if you just want to download these, you can get creative with real ephemera!
I began by cleaning up the personal information, but you can leave in as much as you want.
I was lucky and got this wonderful vintage book. Because I wanted to use it and share it, and also keep it I decided to digitize the entire thing!
I added a few sample pages to our Freebies page. If you already have access to our digital library. we added a few additional pages there as well.
For the entire digitized book (700+ pages total!) we have them available on USB flash drives. Each page has been scanned in with high resolution (600 DPI) and available as a single jpg file on the drive.
This book is full of so many fun pages! Drawings and art, stories, information, activities, music, maps, Bible stories, knowledge and so very much!
Whether you want to use an entire page for a scrapbooking project, print and bind the book for yourself or a gift, or use the neat artwork in frames- the possibilities are endless.
