In the previous two editions of my Daisy Lane Stamp Set Showcase, we have looked at matching sets of projects. Click the links to take a look at part 1 and part 2. This week, we are taking a look at something different: a home décor wall hanger using the coordinating punches. I think its really nice to stretch your papercraft into the realms of gifts and decorations for around the home. Don’t assume that its difficult or complicated because it isn’t; a blank wall hanging is no different from a blank card base or gift box.
Daisies for a friend…
I’ve gone for quite a subtle look but the addition of a few more (or a lot more if you prefer) Daisies would bring a fuller, more opulent look.
The basic heart hanger was bought cheaply from The Range. I have then covered the heart in a piece of Woven Threads DSP. Sanding the edges gives a nice finish and helps to prevent the DSP from peeling up. Sponging ink around the edges of the DSP frames the piece nicely – in this case I have used Terracotta Tile ink.
Daisies have been cut out using the Daisy punch and the Medium Daisy punch in Terracotta Tile, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray and Purple Posy. Once these have been adhered together, centres are added using the Clear Faceted Gems. In addition, leaves have been cut out of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Sprig punch and adhered to the back of the Daisies. The flowers are then adhered around the outside of the heart.
The final touch is added with the word ‘friend’ cut out of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Well Written dies.
I think this would make a lovely, thoughtful gift and it could easily be paired with a matching card and gift tag.
I hope you have enjoyed this blog post and will consider adding home décor pieces to your papercraft repertoire.
