Maya Road Tu Tu Tulle Trim in Teal, say THAT three times fast, really gives it the feel of fluttery wings. The antennas are actually some Prima SIIC that I "refitted" for this project. The body is some of the same Prima, cut up even more, and some bling from the stash.To make your pattern, you can trace around one of the acrylic pages on a piece of regular white printer paper. Scan it, then use your patterned, or solid, papers in your printer. Print, then cut. Just make sure you trim your paper to fit the printer, and if it comes out on the wrong side, just flip it, reprint then cut.
For the first page, more paper from the stash and the flower is Maya Road Burlap For the antennas I used Maya Road Heart Trinket pins. I just stuck them between the paper and acrylic while the Zip Dry was drying and they've been pretty secure. Unless otherwise specified, the papers used for this were from "the stash".
I am seriously in love with the Maya Road Tu Tu Tulle in Lemon ! Flamingo scraps also carries the burlap flowers in this color. Loooove it ! The antennas are Maya Road Trinket Pinks Green Flowers swirl in the left bottom corner is Prima SIIC with small cream flowers. For some added sparkle, Stickles around the edges came to the rescue.
|Websters Pages Petite Ruffled Trim Gold is used with the tulle and washi tape across the center.The Maya Road Gingham Fabric tape in Ocean would be even BETTER for this. They say hindsight is 20/20 !|
Maya Road lowercase letters,Tu Tu Tulle in Vintage Beige ,borders this page. A Websters Resin Butterfly completes this look.
I had a piece of laser cut paper with butterflies, so I cut one out and backed it with white card stock . The acrylic butterfly is covered with black card stock. I used a gel roller to make "stitches" and put the laser cut butterfly on a piece of black card stock that fit only the bottom half to create a pocket. Stickles make the wings shimmer, and I cut up a piece of Prima SIIP for the black dots.
Tu Tu Pleated Tulle Cinnamon, Maya Road gives a fluttery look to this page that has swirled embossed white card stock I highlighted with red ink and clear Stickles. The antennas are Maya Road Trinket Pinks Pearls while the clothespin and bling body are from my stash. This would be great for a Valentine book.
The back is flocked card stock. I love how well the tulle works with this side as well.
That's all there is to it. A pretty simple, yet elegant looking mini that makes a great gift. A word of advice. You might want to buy TWO of these beauties because if you make one to give, you'll be certain to wish you had one for yourself ! I bought two and plan on adding to this album.
