Paper Crafting Projects


Holiday Wall Decor

Yes this a nontraditional color for Christmas, but isn’t the soft pink just beautiful?  The paper is from Pion Design’s new Days of Winter collection and I really love all these delicate pastel colors.  You can check out this project on the Pion Design blog here.

Here are close-ups of this project.  I started with 3 chipboard hearts.  I found them in the $1 bin at Michael’s.  There were actually 4 hearts in the package for a mini-album.  I glued a long strip of satin ribbon down the backs of the pieces to connect them and then decorated with the lovely papers.

Siri’s Butter Churn

This real butter churn really came to life after being covered with Pion Design’s red Siri’s Kitchen papers.  At around 3 feet tall, it makes a lovely kitchen decorative piece and sits nicely in a cozy kitchen corner.  The post is being featured on Pion Design’s blog here today.  It’s difficult to photograph large projects like this and catch small detail, so I included some close-ups.

Gift Boxes

Pion Design’s My Precious Daughter papers have got to be my all-time favorite as I cannot resist the pinks from this collection.   The post can also be found on the Pion Design blog here.   Here are a few gift boxes I made using these awesome pink papers, borders, and images.

The first box above, was made with an empty Pringles can.  I’ve made and posted one of these before and think they make great gift boxes!
