Happy Camper Jumbo Paperclip

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick and easy project that I created using Eileen Hull’s 3D Camper Diecut.

I gathered leftover scraps of patterned cardstock, lace and an oversized paperclip to create a jumbo book mark for summer reading or to keep the map marked while traveling. I cut a floral patterned cardstock and a cream colored body of the camper (the cream cardstock I will back the floral body of the camper to make it more sturdy).

I cut out two each of the door and the window and adhered a piece of lace to the window and then adhered the other door and window to cover the back of the each. You wouldn’t have to do this but I wanted to add a little dimension to both diecuts.

I cut two of the rectangular diecuts from the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags Thinlits (retired).

I folded in half and placed around the paperclip and adhered both ends together.

I glued the camper into each tab and adhered the cream colored diecut to the back side of the camper diecut.

I cut out a couple of flowers and leaf sprigs from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, shaped and adhered to the corner of the window. I added a gem to the center of the flower and a thread bow to finish it off. As always if you have any questions about this

Summer Floral Altered Jumbo Paperclip

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a project I created for Momenta! I created this easy bookmark with several bits and pieces I had leftover from my past Momenta projects.

I started by folding a 3 1/4″x8″ piece of lilac/purple and gold polka dot cardstock in half from the Watercolor Metallic Paper Pad and cutting a “v” in the end of both before sliding one end of the cardstock around a jumbo paperclip. I adhered both ends together  and added a doily from the 2″ Watercolor Doily Collection.

I had several floral scraps leftover from the Peony Paper Pad and part of a diecut leftover from the Floral Cutting Template Diecut. I fussy cut a flower and several leaves out from the leftover scraps. I shaped the leaves before adhering to the backside of the flower. Before adhering the diecut to what I had cut out I inked the leaves with green ink.

I added foam pop dots to the back of the floral mix and placed on the bookmark. I glued sequins and gems to the flowers and leaves and I placed green thread and pearl sprays to the corner. Also from the same leftover diecut I cut out the butterfly and added pink ink to the wings before adhering to the bookmark.
This project was under an hour to complete and would be perfect to give as an add-on gift with a good book. If you need more inspiration go to Momenta which you can find HERE. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
