Christmas Decor DIY with Paper Pads

Shannon Circle2Have you ever heard the phrase, sometimes less is more? Today, I am showing you an easy way to add a lot of impact with just a few (7 to be exact) feathers from the incredibly versatile Project Pads offered at Paper House…these Project Pads can be used for a multitude of projects.

I used the Feathers Project Pad for the altered frame you see below.  Yes, that’s it. That’s all I needed to create the effect needed, which was golden, feathery, white and gentle.

I bought a bare frame and painted it as shown.

Next, I actually covered the glass pane that came with the frame with chalkboard paint. I then got to work hand lettering the fitting lyrics, and then went over them with white glitter glue so there was a bit of magic. Adding two tacks (eyeball this) in each corner, created the perfect placement for the feathers. I  used a hole punch to punch holes in each feather, going for different lengths  and sizes.  Green twine was the perfect touch as the feathers were strung “on the line”.   After the twine was pulled taught and  wrapped around the tacks, I added a bow and bell for each corner.   A little  glitter added here and there, and  we can call the project  finished !  Thanks for letting me share with  you!

Thanksgiving in the US is coming up quickly and requires all kinds of ingredients for the perfect day. I knew I needed to start working on one ingredient:  cute decor for my table.  With just a few simple ingredients I was able to pull together an adorable turkey and some napkin rings: the most important ingredient being the Feathers Project Pad.  Christine joining you today to showcase my fun DIY Thanksgiving Table Decor.

Combining the feathers with a couple of circles, some Autumn Woods washi tape, empty toilet paper rolls, and enamel dots; I was able to make both the turkey and some napkin rings.  Here’s the whole process in a quick video!

I can’t even tell you how much fun it was to put this turkey together!  I love it when the project comes together and is just super fun!

Easy Home Decor With DIY Project Pads

sara-circle-2

Hello Hello! I have a photo tutorial for you today showing how to create an easy home decor piece..so easy, in fact, that my 11-year-old son did most of the creating! Here is the finished piece..

 

IMG_3837

Supplies Used-  Feathers Project Pad

Step 1 and  2 – Paint a canvas (any size you like) with a thick, messy coat of heavy white acrylic paint…you want some texture…the more the better! After drying, apply random feathers from the project pad to the canvas, using a removable adhesive (oh, and choose designs you are less likely to want/need for another project)

Steps 3 and 4 – Spray your creation with a heavy coat of gold spray ink so it settles in all the cracks and crannies…leave to dry for at least 24 hours or until completely dry. Remove the feathers to reveal a negative image. Build your home decor piece from there, using more feathers, craft fun foam, and any other little notions you would like. thread, buttons, twine…anything to add interest and texture.

Finish by applying an appropriate quote, saying, or words of your choice. I chose to cut my scripture from black cardstock with my Silhouette but the options for this are endless!

Another great use for his project pad are clean and simple cards…Paired with some stamps, mist, ink, or sewing notions from your craft room can create a striking card in a snap…these two took me 10 min. including drying time!

Harvest Blessings Fall Home Decor Fence

Melinda Circle2

Hello crafty friends!  Melinda here with you today and I am super excited about my project. We were tasked with making something “off the page” and so I decided to make a Fall Home Decor Fence.

Fall Home Decor Fence

Supplies Used: The Great Outdoors Paper Crafting Kit, Autumn Air Scrapbook Paper, Autumn Woods Cardstock Stickers

I started by creating my cut file. I didn’t have anymore chipboard so I used several sheets of brown cardstock. Once I glued all the layers together, I cut out the pieces from my brown wood paper that came in the Great Outdoors paper crafting kit. I liked that this particular piece of patterned paper had a wood grain with no “planks look” I could cut the fence pieces out with out worrying about having any odd lines.

Next I assembled my fence posts and lined them up. I then adhered the horizontal planks to make the fence pieces hold together.  I added some brads to give the appearance of nails.

I then designed and cut four layers of the harvest blessing. I glued and stacked the four cuts to add some strength and a bit of dimension to the words.

Next I fussy cut the pretty pumpkins from a piece of the Autumn Air paper. The weight of this paper is great. Not too flimsy at all. I added some foam tape to the back and they made the perfect border for my fence.

I then turned to my cardstock sticker set and added the sweet little animals. And the little pumpkin sticker at the bottom.

This view shows how the layers of cardstock gave the pieces a nice thick look and a very sturdy feel.

I then created this fun little sign to hang with another sticker and added it to a piece of the same Autumn Air paper. It has a wood grain look too. I used some hemp to hang it and some more brads.

For the back I simply cut strips of cardstock at 2.25 x 12. I scored each strip at 1″, 6″ and 11″. I folded each strip in half and glued it together. I folded the 1″ pieces so that they would act as a hinge and glued it to my project. I glue about four of the strips together to make each leg nice and sturdy. I used a hole punch to punch a hole and then knotted some hemp and then glue it to the other side through the holes so that it would act as the bottom part of the base. This way when it’s time to put it away, I can lay it flat for storage.

Here’s one last look at my completed project.

If you would like to create your own project be sure to head over to the store and purchase your stickers and paper.  I am sharing the cut file pattern with you here for a limited time. If you have a craft cutting machine that uses: AI, DXF, SVG, STUDIO or WPC files, then you can use this file.

sara-circle-2 Hello Hello! I hope you are having a wonderful day! Thank you so much for stopping by to visit the blog! My dear mother recently spent an extended period in the hospital. I decided to create a home decor/art piece that included a photo of all her grandchildren to brighten up her room and then she can hang it in her home in a few weeks when she is discharged.  This Wood Plank Home Decor incorporates the beautiful Field Study paper pad to decorate it.Wood Plank Home Decor using Field Study from Paper House Productions

Products Used- Field Study 12″ Paper Pad

I fussy cut as many butterflies as I could to include on the wood plank. I adhered everything with a mixture of wet glue or glue dots and I added dimension by putting some craft foam behind the butterflies.

IMG_1952 I chose patterns and cut apart pieces from the paper pad that showcased the GORGEOUS copper foil in this pad…absolutely stunning!

I hope you enjoyed this project today…and, yes, my mama loved it a bunch!

DIY Thankful Note Board

Hello! Samantha here with you. I have a project today that’s not only great for fall but also a wonderful way to put a positive emphasis on interactions between family members. This DIY Thankful Note Board is a really fun way to get everyone involved in small acts of gratitude.

Supplies: Autumn Woods Autumn Woods, Autumn Woods Washi Tape, Autumn Woods Rice Paper Border Stickers, Autumn Woods Puffy Clips, Feathers Project Pad and Discover Italy Cardstock Multi Pack

We’re using this note board this fall to leave each other notes of gratitude. There are no rules to how to use the note board. The idea is just to write down something you’re grateful for about another family member or a note of thanks if they did something kind for you. It’s a fun way to call out acts of everyday kindness!

I had a small frame with a recessed area of about 4″ x 4″. I painted the frame with brown paint, and then went to town decorating it with embellishments from the Autumn Woods collection (and a few other collections, as well). I thought the feathers from the Feather Project Pad coordinated beautifully with Autumn Woods, so I added a few of those. To give them a bit of a 3D effect, I took a bone folder and scored the feathers down the middle. Folding them a little along the score line gives the feathers some extra dimension, perfect for an off the page project.

Si

Since I was using feathers on this project, it seemed like the perfect choice to use this sweet little owl for our note board clip. The metal is nice and sturdy, so we’ll be able to use it over and over again without the metal getting fatigued.

I finished up by using washi tape to add some borders (and a pop of color) to the frame.

I can’t wait to start using our thankful note board to add some extra gratitude to our days.

The little woodland creatures add a nice touch to the collection.  The puffy stickers were a great way to add some dimension to the project.

I lined the top with a rice paper border that has beautiful foiling on it.  Next time you are at  store and see a cheap, plain jar; grab it!  Make it your own with your paper crafting supplies.

I used the Color washed paper pad to cut some flowers and leaves from a silhouette cut file. The little flake stickers were perfect to fit into a little cup to make a shaker on one of the flowers. Such a fun little element.
