Happy Day, my friends! Boy, do I have some fun promos and a giveaway for you today. Eeekk!! But first, I’ve got to show you my new spring wreath. I’m slowly, but surely, getting my house in order for spring and it’s making me so happy. Did you see my chalkboard art I share earlier this week? I smile every time I walk by it.
I decided to change up my easily-changeable-burlap wreath to something a little more springy.
First for the bunting, I cut out my fabric. I didn’t cut it out with the Silhouette because I didn’t have any fabric interfacing, so I just cut out template from cardstock and traced it onto the fabric and cut by hand. You can see how I make fabric buntings here.
And I’ve uploaded my template for you in a studio file, so you can use it if you want to. Click HERE to download.
Then I printed out my kraft buntings from the printable adhesive kraft paper. I could have printed the “welcome” letters right on the kraft paper, but I didn’t want the colors changed by the kraft paper, so I printed them on white. I’ll show you that in a sec.
Here’s the kraft paper bunting cut file: download HERE. I know it’s just a triangle, but it’ll save you a few seconds. 🙂
I so love that you can print anything that you want on this paper and it’ll turn into a sticker. The possibilities are endless!
Now for the print and cut fun! I typed out “WELCOME” in photoshop and used some of my favorite colors – look familiar?? 🙂 I saved the text as a .png file and then opened it in the Silhouette Studio. You can download the “welcome” studio file HERE.
I’m not going to walk you through every step of the print and cut feature. I watched this video tutorial from Under a Cherry Tree and it told me everything I needed to know.
I printed out the letters with my home color printer onto my printable adhesive white paper.
And then I fed it into the Silhouette and it cut around the letters perfectly, thanks to the registration marks. Again, watch this 4-minute video to see all of the print & cut details.
And then I stuck them all together, attached them to twine and tied it to my wreath form. I added some blooms and a little nest and eggs and I have my spring wreath. Super easy!
I love how bright and cheery it is!
Now that I’ve conquered my first easy print and cut project, my wheels are spinning with all of the fun things I can make.
Thanks again for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day and a fabulous weekend!
Don’t miss out on the behind-the-scenes fun!
