Lace-Ups: Celebration, Bulbs and Stars – Gift Toppers

Hello,

Lilian (The Leaf Studio) here…it’s my turn to share a project today! Do you like wrapping gifts?

I do! So here’s what I made…Gift Toppers:

How-To:

1. (optional) Apply white gesso on Lace-Up: Celebration, Bulbs and let dry

You can skip this step if you’re using regular glitter. I used Holographic glitter and they are a little see-through…I didn’t want a “brown-ish” color, so that’s why the gesso…

2. Apply Dimensional Magic on the bulb part

3. Sprinkle glitter of your choice and let dry

4. Apply Dimensional Magic on the remaining “screw” area, sprinkle glitter color of choice (I used yellow) and let dry

Repeat with Lace-Up: Celebration, Stars…I didn’t gesso the stars because I used a brilliant or regular glitter.

5. Use die cuts (or cut them with an electronic machine – I used my Cricut E2 and some cartridges) for the base. I layered different shapes.

6. Tie ribbons on the Lace-Ups

7. Adhere the shapes on the bases with foam tape

8. Add Gift Toppers to your packages!

Supplies:

Lace-Up: Celebration, Bulbs

Lace-Up: Celebration, Stars

Gesso

Brush

Glitter

Ribbon

Dimensional Magic (or other adhesive)

Cardstock

Die Cuts or Machine-Cut Shapes

Foam Tape

Hello Baby – Lace-Up: Celebration, Stars – Card

Hello, dear friends!

Lilian (The Leaf Studio) here today to share a cute Baby Card, using Lace-Up: Celebration, Stars

Heat embossing is my favorite technique to color the chipboard shapes!

I inked the Lace-Up: Celebration, Stars with VersaMark and sprinkled some neon yellow embossing powder on (I use a piece of scrap paper for this):

Put the excess powder back in the container and use a heat gun to melt the powder.

I repeat the process a couple of times, for a smoother look.

I die cut a piece of patterned paper and adhered it on the white card base:

String some yarn through Lace-Up: Celebration, Stars and add some foam tape on the back:

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of paper, tore the sides and inked the edges. Add the strip and the Lace-Up: Celebration, Stars on the card:
