Lovely Doilies

To celebrate that the Fresh Moments dies that I designed for Sizzix EU are arriving to the shops around, I thought I would a series of tutorials and projects featuring the collection in the last few weeks in three blogs that I post - Sizzix EUTubo and this very one.

Today I am doing a project using the Lovely Doilies set of dies. 

I started by die cutting several doilies out of yellow, pink and grey Bo Bunny's Double Dot papers. Then I used both Circle Framelits set - the original set 1 and the second one which has the missing sizes, no repeat sizes.I place them on top so that I can see which sizes will I need. Then I die cut them using the same papers. I layer them and attach them together.

I place each of the circles up side down, placea big line of hot glue gun on the back and place the painted kebab stick to it. Put a dot at the top and push the decorative paper clip at the top. Let the glue get cold and add some more to make sure it is well attached.

To make the faux grass I die cut loads of bunches from the Bunch of Flowers die set out of several shades of green. Then I attached one and then use double sided tape around the same height. Attaching a couple at a time I finished covered the whole mini watering can all round.

I finished it with some ribbon from CraftFairy, where you can find loads of great ribbon at very good prices. I die cut some Instant Frames and place them over some of my favourite photos and attach them to the paper clips. And there it is:

There is plenty more you can do with the doilies, like the card bellow done with the one die that has not a circle outer blade.
