Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans…

Happy Tuesday!  Instead of Time for a CARD Tuesday, I thought that I would have a fun winter/Christmas PROJECT to share with you today.

I love working with wood blocks and making lil’ gifties.  HERE is one that I did a couple of years ago (a pin, because my former blog is no longer in use).

This project makes a wonderful gift without breaking the bank or taking up too much time.  The length of what you will need to make one might seem long, but chances are that you have a lot (most) of this stuff in your craft stash.

Supplies:

Seasonal Sentiments Stamp Set

Confetti Cuts Dies: Branch Out, Let It Snow, Tag Me (flag ended panel)

Ink

Wood Block (Mine is one of the photo blocks from Michaels.  They come with metal swirlies coming out the top, but are easily removed.  I think I picked them up for a $1 each last year).

Wood Balls

Patterned Paper

Felt (I used 2 different colors of green)

White Cardstock

Brown Cardstock

White Paint

Paint Brush

Stencil

Embossing Paste (I used translucent)

The How-To:

1. Paint and sand wood block.

2. Adhere pattern paper to front of blog and apply embossing paste over stencil, sprinkle with glitter and allow to dry.

3. Cut tree pieces from felt and trunk from brown cardstock. Add white cardstock detail covered in glitter to bottom of scalloped tree. Assemble, add sequins & rhinestones and add to block using dimensional adhesive

4. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock piece cut from the flag ended panel from TAG ME Confetti Cuts.  Tuck under tree and adhere to block with dimensional adhesive.

5. Cut snowflakes from LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts dies and adhere to block, adding sequins, as well.

6. Paint wood balls, allow to dry.  Cover in adhesive (such as Mod Podge or Martha Stewart Glitter glue) and roll in glitter.  Allow to dry and adhere to base of wood block using hot glue.

7. For the topper, stack ribbon (in a double bow), snowflake (cut from LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts) and button tied off with linen thread and jingle bells.  Attach to top of block with hot glue.
