Hi everyone! I’m back from Creativation and I had a tiring but fun time! I hope to do a blog post later about my adventures there in the next week or two…it is so hard to get back into the swing of things. Anyway, I want to share my project using Eileen Hull’s newest Display Stand Diecut.
I started by placing Adhesive Sheets on both sides of the Matboard and adding patterned cardstock over the adhesive (this makes it so much easier) before placing the diecut on top and running through the Diecut Machine.
I tried to put the stand together according to the directions but I bent the diecut the wrong way to begin with…can we say up oh…the bottom front of the diecut once I put it together right was buckled up pretty bad. BUT!!! I was able to cover up my mistake with hot pink gems which in my opinion dressed it up. I cut a piece of cardstock about an inch wide and the length of the stand and adhered each end to the stand. I created a belly band which I then placed the back sheet of the memo pad through the band. This is an easy way to replace the pad of paper once it is used up.
Next I cut a piece of elastic to fit around an ink pen and adhered each end to each side of a binder clip.
From my stash of flowers and leaves I had cut from the Flowers and Leaves Journaling Cards Thinlits Dies I shaped flowers and leaves and adhered to the top of the display stand and to the binder clip.
I also added buttons, glossy dots and loops of green thread to the center of each flower.
I placed an ink pen into the binder clip holder before clipping to the side of the display stand. This diecut has so many possibilities! As always if you have questions about this project please let me know. To see the rest of Eileen’s Inspiration Teams projects you can find the posts HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.
