Door Dressing…

So yesterday I showed you this picture…

This is a whole pack of All Is Calm Designer Series Paper cut in 1″ x 6″ strips.  Then curled with a bone folder.  Now I have to warn you to be sure an wear either a latex glove on your right hand if you’re right handed to prevent paper cuts.  Since I curled these while riding in the car home from Florida my thumb and hand have several paper cuts.  But here is the results…

Yes!  Because the color combo of blue and green is a favorite of mine, I’m in love with this DSP.  I know the ribbon isn’t SU! but I needed a wider ribbon.  Love the glitter three-dimensional stars, too.

This wreath will be a class I’m giving for my book club in December.  The cost is $28 and includes everything you need to make this 13″ wreath.  I may also do a class for my regular customers if there is enough interest.

For the wreath here are the supplies you will need:

  • 13″ styrofoam wreath
  • One package All Is Calm DSP
  • One half sheet Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Silver ribbon of your choice
  • Approximately 250 straight pins

Once you have all your paper cut into 1″ by 6″ strips and curled, it’s just a pinning project.  The stars are scored to give the 3-dimensional look (I plan a short video on this).  Add the bow and you are done.  There is no way to mess this up.  Don’t over think placement, you have more than enough curls.  I actually didn’t use all mine.

Here’s some inspiration for some other decorations made with All Is Calm DSP…

Can you stand it?  Can’t you just see a pretty white tree decorated with all these?  I’m working on it…

Here is your “B-ism” for today…”It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

Hope you are having a great day and are feeling inspired by something you’ve seen today.

I’m definitely inky…and very Happy!

    • Actually it only took a couple of hours. Curling the paper was the most time consuming part. Really fun to make and I love this paper!…B
