Hi everyone, I’m so excited to show you some 3-D paper crafts that make adorable home decor and great gifts!
These little garden boxes of succulents and cacti were easy and fun to make! I used Sizzix Thinlits Succulents 2-D & 3-D Die Set and cut the shapes from green, aqua, gray and lavender Pastel Cardstock, curved the petal by wrapping each around a pencil and then inked the edges purple, green, dark pink and aqua before assembling.
I glued floral foam (from my local dollar store) into large and medium size Tim Holtz Idea-ology Vignette Boxes and tucked Spanish Moss (dollar store again) around the edges.
For additional dimension, I placed dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew on the round cactus sections and let dry. I followed the manufacturer’s instructions for assembling the 3-D pieces and hot glued them directly to the foam. I Tucked moss among the pieces to cover the foam, use Twilight Jewels sheer purple dot ribbon to make a bow for each box and glue, as shown.
To make a “Welcome” wall hanging I covered a chipboard “W” with barn wood Seaside Paper. I used Timber Brown StazOn™ Ink along the letter edges and bottom half of the Galvanized Metal Welcome Sign and hot glued the sign across the letter. I hot glued a cluster of paper succulents and moss to the bottom left, a single succulent and moss to the top right, and a tiny succulent overlapping the “Welcome” sign. I made a loopy bow from brown Seaside Ribbon Set and glue it to the top left side of the succulent. Place a Clear Self-Adhesive Hanger on the top back of the on the “W” center.
This 3-D hydrangea card includes a canning jar vase from Well Preserved Stamp Set, Garden Notes Hydrangea Cutting Die Set, Inside/Outside Greetings Dazzles™ Stickers and Romantique Paper Pack & Ribbon Set.
I cut the individual blossoms from both pink and light blue Romantique papers and inked each using a Pink Ink Pad. I used a stylus to gently curve the blossom petals and then glued them in a tight cluster, as shown. Glue a pink seed bead, from Pretty Princess Embellishment Bottle, to the centers of random blossoms. Die cut the leaves and stems from green Romantique Paper and ink edges with a green ink pad. To see this process, check out the Elizabeth Craft Weekly Webisode, which will air tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by and remember to set aside some time during these long summer evenings to make something special! Happy crafting!
