Graphic 45 DT Project #1 by Claire

Hello Snazzy fans!

Claire here today to share my very first Snazzy project with you all featuring Graphic 45's Twelve Days of Christmas range.

I chose to alter a couple of baubles for my first project this week:



They started out as grey chipboard shapes:


I covered one bauble with a section of the page for 'Two Turtle Doves'  I sanded around the edges after sticking the page to the bauble to create a nice smooth finish.  I added one of matching banners that come in this collection to the bauble and covered it with glossy accents.

 

The second bauble was covered with paper from the 'Four Calling Birds' pages - again the edges were sanded for a nice finish.  I die cut the '4' from elsewhere on the pages and also the text 'four calling birds'  The oval with the number 4 on was treated with the glossy accents for a nice shiny surface also.


I did paint the reverse of the baubles also just in case they spin around the wrong way when I actually get my tree put up!

I hope you enjoyed my first Snazzy project, I'll be back again later in the week with another project to share with you all.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Claire x

Hi Claire, what a wonderful idea to make baubles with the papers! Wouldn't have thought of that! Lovely to see all the different interpretations with the kit!
