I have used the Bo Bunny 'Mama Razzi' range for this step by step. I've found this range is really versatile. The obvious themes include photography, male, vintage, heritage, graduation but can be used for many more...
- Paper string ribbon
- Pleated Fabric strip
- fabric thickers
- Carolee Creations tiny chocolate alphas
- Liquid pearls
- embroidery thread and needle
Step 1. I used the kraft cardstock as a base and inked around the edges with black ink.
Step 2. I cut the 'Shutter' patterned paper to 9 inches wide by 11 and a half inches. I then blanket stitched around the edges of the paper (alternatively you can ink, paint or doodle a border around the edge). I only stitched around three edges because the fourth won't be seen.
I then attached it to the right-hand side of the kraft base.
Step 3. I cut the 'Panorami die cut' paper at around the two thirds mark.
(Tip: I love the die cut papers but they are a little bit more expensive than regular patterned paper so I usually cut them this way so I can get two layouts out of the one die cut paper).
I wanted to define the edge of the die cut paper a bit more so I outlined it with some liquid pearls to make it stand out. I then attached it to the left-hand side of the layout.
Step 4. I cut my photo out as a silhouette and then placed that on top of the die cut paper and then placed a pleated fabric strip over the top to hide the bottom of the photo.
Step 5. From the 'Mama Razzi Cut outs' paper I cut out the 'Life is Beautiful' frame and attached it to the layout. For the title I used the Carolee Creations tiny milk chocolate alpha stickers and some fabric thickers.
Step 6. Making the handmade flower.
To make the handmade flower, I cut a circle from some scrap paper the size I wanted the flower to be. I cut a three quarters of an inch strip (by 12 inches) from the 'Mama Razzi Tabloid' paper and then crumpled it up...
then twisted it.............
Spiral the paper around as you twist the paper.
For the outside layer I just twisted the paper so that the opposite side of the paper was showing. I glued it onto the circle and attached it to the layout.
Step 7. I tied some paper string ribbon through two buttons and attached them next to the handmade flower.
And that's it! Happy creating...
