Practicing Creativity

Papermania Home to Nest decoupage Father's Day Birdhouse Banner card with written instructions

Here is another one of my docrafts trial projects I designed for Creative magazine (see the first one here), using docrafts Papermania Home To Nest A4 Ultimate Die-cut & Paper Pack. This time it's a Father's Day card.

I love these Bare Basics canvas shapes; you can use them in so many different ways.

Banner Birdhouse Father's Day Card – Instructions

1. Cut a kraft paper rectangle 12.2 x 17.3cms. Cut the garden images paper 11.7 x 16.8cms. Center on the kraft paper and glue. Glue to the 5 x 7" card blank face. Cut a band of kraft paper 12.2 x 3.5cms. Cut a green paper band 11.7 x 3cms, center on the kraft band and glue. Cut a die-cut bird border of 11.7cms, center and glue on the green band. Glue this band 4.5cms from the card's bottom edge.

2. Cut a kraft rectangle 8.6 x 12cms. Center and glue the decoupage base. Build the decoupage birdhouse image with 3D foam tape and squares, center and glue 2cms from the card's bottom edge.

3. Glue the Father's Day sentiment to kraft paper and cut a small 2mm border. Glue in the bottom right corner of the decoupage image.

4. Use a large eye needle to thread baker's twine through the eyelets of the three canvas shapes. Tie knots in the twine at the ends, cut off excess. Make two small double bows. Glue the banner to the top part of the card. Glue the bows to the banner.

Top Tip

Use a large eye needle to run the baker's twine through your eyelets.
