Hello Everyone! It’s Leanne here today to share with you this simple but elegant project, perfect for a housewarming or neighbour gift. Using the idea of geometric shapes, a white photo frame and your favourite Pebbles Inc paper collection, this gift can be created in little time at all. All you need to do is play with 1” paper strips!
Start by gathering your supplies. I’ve used the gorgeous Warm & Cozy Collection by Jen Hadfield.
I have chosen to recreate a geometric heart shape to fit within the borders of a matt mounted photo frame. The width of my triangles is equivalent to 1”.
Start by trimming 1” paper strips from the selected patterned papers. I have used four different patterns to create interest, including the reverse side of some of the patterned paper pieces. Using the 1” paper strip as a guide, trim at 1” intervals to create miniature squares. Finally trim these squares on the diagonal to provide the triangles for your geometric shape.
Arrange paper triangles so that no two create a colour block within your shape. Fussy cut small bunches of flowers from a coordinating patterned paper.
Adhere all of the triangles onto a light based patterned paper. Trim this patterned paper to fit your selected frame. Next, layer the geometric shape with the fussy cut flowers, mounting some of them with foam tape for dimension. Add some enamel dots plus a Gold Foil Foam Thicker to represent your family name, just above the flower cluster.
The “Home Sweet Home” banner was created using the border strip from the Warm & Cozy Sprigs paper. It was trimmed and bordered with cardstock. Leave the cardstock length to extend past the sentiment and fold the ends to form the banner. Place a notch in the each end of the banner and mount on foam tape at the bottom of the framed heart.
All that remains now is for you to decide if you wish to keep your framed project or who the lucky person will be to receive it! Thanks for visiting..x
