Hi there everyone
Allison is our hostess for the January/February challenge and she chose the theme of "Going Round in Circles" .. .. .. mmm... .. a theme I can totally relate to as I feel that is what I do some days LOL!!!
Here is what I created and wanted to share with you today:
The actual flower on my project has been made from the download too .. .. the flowers print out as an actual flower and it is just a case of cutting them out and layering them up (I did use a punch for the green background leaves - no way would I be cutting those out!!).
The folded base of your card now looks like this .. .. you can see how easily it all takes shape.
Next cover just the lower half of your folded circle with glue or double sided tape as below.
So above you will see my double sided tape is on and I have glued on my decorative paper and scalloped circles to both the folded base section and what will be the "face" of my easel card.
To finish off you simply remove the backing off your tape and attached the face to the base by sticking one on top of the other. Lining everything up nice and neatly.
Open your card up and you can decorate it as you wish. You do need to put something on the base to keep the face of your easel card from falling down .. .. some people use a button or a brad, a flower or a layered sentiment but I have used a piece of ribbon that I have ruffled onto some extra strong double sided tape.
I hope that I have explained this clearly enough for people to follow.
This technique works so well that I tried it with other shaped dies that I have and you can create them as squares, ovals, .. .. I even managed a heart shaped one!!
If I have inspired you to take part in the challenge .. .. which I hope I have .. .. that would be great. I would love to see your interpretation of "Going Round in Circles" .. .. but remember that you do need to use as least one Funky Hand paper, or image on your creation. If you don't have any at the moment then Anice has very kindly provided a free download for you to use .. .. .. which very coincidentally has circles on it!! LOL!!! You can find that at the very end of all the downloads that Anice has produced here.
I hope you like what I created and that my little tutorial was useful. If you would like to see the full list of all the ingredients I used on my project then you will find this on my own personal blog which you can find here.
If you would like to enter our Get Funky! Challenge then link your project on Allison's challenge launch post here.
The next Funkette to be sharing with you is Lou and she will be here on the 21st January.
Have a great day everyone and happy crafting!!!
Love Jules xx
