I love these giant paper maché letters I’m seeing everywhere, and it seems like everyone has a different way to decorate them. Above is my take. I punched multiple shapes from a few different sheets of cardstock, curled each shape slightly and adhered them to the front of the letter, so that each shape curls outwards.
I took a piece of white card stock and covered a section with random lines of brightly colored washi tape. Then I used my Feather X-Large lever punch and punched shapes through the card stock and washi tape.To finish, glue them with a hot glue gun to a wooden cocktail stick.Easy!
The dessert I made is a traditional English recipe, using homemade meringues and fresh raspberry cream. It’s called Eton Mess and you can find the recipe here.
Playing around with my new Fern Lever Punch the other day led me to come up with a stenciling technique that I had a lot of fun with and the more intricate the punch design, the better.
Start out by punching out your design from a scrap of card stock. Put the punched shapes to one side for a future project as you’re actually going to use the remaining card stock as the stencil. Place the stencil on a second piece of card stock and add color. I used an ink pad, but you could use gelatos, markers, water colors…
Today I’m sharing these little springtime treat boxes I made up using the Favor Wrap Large Design Set for the Fuse. I made the large flower embellishments using a variety of lever punches and squeeze punches. I crimped the scalloped circle flowers to give them some dimension and used leaves cut with the Petal by Petal squeeze punch. Again, I folded the leaves in half for added dimension, and used a variety of textured cardstock. Fill sacks with jellybeans or marshmallows and slip inside these favor wraps for a pretty springtime gift.
