Here is a project that has been sitting on my computer in “draft mode”. I can’t believe I forgot to share it with you! Well, better late than never. 🙂
This project starts with a
… and transforms it into a lovely paperweight.
Begin by randomly stamping the zinnias (working from the center out, masking the center zinnias). Embossed the sentiment. Position the block over the stamped area as desired for the end product. Lightly trace around the block with a pencil. Using a toothpick [or small disposable brush], apply a thin coat of Diamond Glaze to the “back” side edge of the acrylic block (only the edge so the glue won’t show through the block and distort your stamped image). Reposition the block over the stamped image within the pencil outline and glue side down. Being careful not to nick or cut into the block, trim away the excess paper neatly around the block with sharp scissors (or X-Acto knife). Back the underside of the paperweight with velvet paper, die cut in an oval shape (a bit smaller than the block) … a scalloped oval is also pretty.
Makes a great gift!
