Paper Crafting Projects




I don’t do many layouts, but decided to do one for this beautiful picture of my daughter Jordan and Noah’s feet as a newborn.  Since the Pion Design paper has a coordinating back side, I created the vintage torn opening at the top with lacing to highlight the gingham back print.  The wood Kaiser Craft gate was painted with ivory craft paint.  To frame the layout, I stitched around the paper and then added a lace border.  Here are some close-ups:




Wood Photo Display

This wooden photo display was decorated with Pion Design papers.  I also used  wooden embellishments and painted all the wooden parts with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle paints.


















Pie Box

This pie box holds a large, deep 9″ pie.  I created this box with a Pazzles cutting file and covered it with Pion Design paper.  I cut out the intricate lattice top using a Monica Bjork cutting file.  The top lacing was  fun and I used eyelets to provide decoration and prevent paper strain.
