Pinterest is EVIL! Not really, but I've sure got a lot of wanna do's tucked away for future crafting dates.
Here's one I've been wanting to do for a little while.
Easy and relatively quick! Foam core, scrapbooking paper, tape and a few other odds and ends.
You'll need to cut your foam core. Use an exacto knife with a new blade OR a foam cutting knife. The new blade makes for smooth edges.
Using your electronic die cutting machine, cut the same shapes. I used my eclips2 and eCal2 software and the basic shapes library to make rectangles and a circle. The dimensions I used were: 7 inch diameter circle; small rays, 1.25 x 6 inches; large rays, 1.25 x 8 inches. Banner, five 2 x 3 inches (cut a set out of chip and a set with hello). Be sure to add your holes for threading twine through to hang on your "sun."
Using scor tape, apply the paper to your rays and the disc. Ink the edges if desired.
Glue the rays to back of the disc using a glue gun. Add your hanger. Set aside. Make your banner, string with twine or ribbon.
Hang the banner on the sun and then hang your sunshine! It's pretty easy!
TIP: because foam core has a paper barrier and isn't waterproof, I don't recommend hanging this out in the weather. I used scor tape avoided any warping...instead of a liquid adhesive.
Hope you have some crafting time scheduled in this week! Have a great time...
