Every year, our family celebrates Christmas with a dinner and ornament exchange. Although I can't be there again this year, I want to be a part of that. So this is what I decided to make.
You'll need a 3 x 3 burlap "canvas" (mine is from CanvasCorp)
electronic cutting machine and software and pen tool
3D poinsetta SVG file (there are quite a few out there)
Markers - Spectrum Noir and Rose Art Glitter markers were used for this project
Embossing machine and folder
I used my eClips to cut the poinsetta - the Merry Christmas was a leftover from a friend's previous project - but you could make something similar.
Once all the flower pieces are cut, emboss if desired, then get your markers and spray, I started with a lighter red and then deepened the color adding another layer of color to the white card stock. The largest layer is the "leaf" and I sprayed it as well with a couple of layers of color. You can use a dark color and just lightly spray a first layer, then color along the edges for a bit deeper and richer effect.
I added some additional curling lengthwise and curling the edges downwards. Stack and glue each layer from largest to smallest. Add an embellishment to the flower center. Add the tag with a bit of hot glue and use some hot glue to secure the flower. Add a hanger, some ribbon or jute twine. As a final embellishment, I sprayed the flower with a bit of red glitter pen. Adding just a little bit of sparkle to the final project.
Thanks for dropping by today. Happy crafting!
