0 Copic Tutorial - Woodland Tree Gift Card Holder!


 

Welcome Tiffany Doodler's! Michelle here!  I have one more holiday tutorial for you today. I am coloring one of the Woodland Tree's and adding it to the front of a gift tag holder that can double as an ornament.

The supplies I am using for this project are:
  • One manilla tag
  • assorted ribbon
  • papers from Bo Bunny
  • rhinestones
 
I started the gift card holder by covering the tag with one patterned paper and trimming it to size I also re-punched the whole in the top. I then cut two pieces out of a coordinating paper, the pocket has 1/2 inch added to each side to fold under. I also cut a smaller, third piece of paper to create the bottom of my pocket. I added a few jewels to the background paper and ribbons to the whole in the tag. For the coloring I used BG93, G24, G28, E33, E35, E29, BV0000, Y32 and Y35.

Step #1 - Color the entire tree with your BG93.

Step #2 - Use your G24 to shade on the underside of the branches.

Step #3 - G28 is next, use a feather stroke from the base of each layer downward.

Step #4 - Go back in with your G24 and add feather strokes on top of your G28.

Step #5 - Add E33 on the trunk of the tree.


Step #6 - Use E35 to add shading to your trunk.

Step #7 - I used E29 to finish off my trunk.


Step #8 - Go back in with your E35 and E33 to soften your blending on the trunk. BV0000 is the color I used to add just a touch of shadow to the snow.

Step #9 - Fill the star on top with Y32 and use your blender to soften the edges of your BV0000.

Step #10 - Use your Y35 to add shading to your star.



Step #11 - Soften the coloring on the star by blending with your Y32 and your tree is finished!

Step # 12 - Fussy cut around the edges of your tree. Adhere the bottom portion to the pocket of your gift card holder. Add small rhinstones to decorate your tree and if you like add a wide sheer ribbon to the base of the tree.

4 Beaded Broche from Digital Stamp

I used the Little Tree Digital Stamp to make this pretty little beaded broche. I really had no idea how to go about making a crafty broche, but this is what I came up with!


I started by tracing the little tree on some felt and cutting out 2 pieces each.  I purposely left tabs on the top of each piece so that I would have spots to sew it all together.  I also cut out 2 little flowers with 2 leaves each.  I sewed them on with cream embroidery thread.  Then I just began sewing on various beads in different sizes and colors.  I made sure they were all very pastel shades to keep the "look" I was going for!


Once I got all the beads sewed on like I wanted I put the 2 pieces together and blanket stitched around the edges leaving the top open (except for the very top smallest piece).

Then I placed where I wanted them to be and sewed them onto the back.  I came up through the beads while sewing since you can't see it anyway b/c the thread is the same color and there are too many beads!

After I got the 3 pieces sewed together I cut out another piece kinda in the shape of the tree just smaller.  Then I sewed the pin onto this piece.

Then I sewed that whole piece onto the back using the running stitch, just making sure it held in place!

And there you have it!  My little Christmas tree broche!!  Hope you like!  Try your own!  Makes a great gift and it was fun to make!!

I had so much fun making this that I decided to make another, only a little different!  At the last minute as I was sewing up the edges, I thought it needed a bit of dimension so I grabbed a kleenex from the desk next to me and smooshed it inside and finished sewing up.


Hope you enjoyed this different kind of project!

0 Gift Canister Tutorial!



December is upon us and last minute gift buying is in high swing. This month I am going to share two gift packaging ideas. Today I am playing with the Christmas Ornament set from Tiffany Doodles. This is another set with multiple images and endless possibilities!

I am adhering my ornaments on an empty lemonade container. I love this little container because it is a great size to put all sorts of little treats in and a friend clued me in that it is the perfect size for a small group of Copic markers, which makes me happy! The supplies for this project are:
 

Empty canister - Mine is a Walmart lemonade mix canister Patterned paper - Basic Grey Ribbon - American Crafts Stickles - Black Diamond I started by peeling the label off the canister and measuring the size for my golden patterned paper. I also measured the top of the lid and cut a circle out of my darker patterned paper. I used my E49 to color the sides and outer edge of the top of my lid. Then I adhered the paper to the canister and lid.

Next I measured and adhered ribbon to the top edge of the canister. I added four small bows around the canister and lastly used Stickles to add small dot chains running down from each of the bows.    

On to coloring the images. I am going to show you one ornament I colored red and one green side by side. I printed my images on Kraft cardstock this time. Typically any brand of Kraft cardstock is going to be softer and have a lot more tooth then your usual smooth white cardstock. The ink will bleed further but the colors blend very easily. Step #1 - On your red ornament start with R20 and on your green start with YG11, color the majority of your ornament.
 

Step #2 - Add your first layer of shading with R24 and YG13.  

Step #3 - No blending yet, add R29 and YG17 to your red and green ornaments.  

Step #4 - I added one last shade on my red ornament. I added R39 to the darkest areas, R59 or R89 could be substituted or you can skip this step entirely.
 

Step #5 - I worked in reverse and blended my colors together. On the green ornament I used YG13 then YG11 to complete my blending. On the red ornament I used R29, R24 and then R20 to smooth the colors.
 

Two ornaments complete and ready to go. I colored four ornaments and then cut them out. I did not try to cut out the bows or the chains since I have already added those on my canister. I curled each image slightly so that it would curve with the canister and then adhered them with pop dots. As a side note when I do this project again I will make sure to have black pop dots you can see them as you turn the canister and black would look much better!
 

One canister ready to fill with goodies for a friend. Thanks for checking out the tutorial. I’ll be back in a couple weeks with another quick Holiday idea. In the mean time you can see my other doings over at my blog if you are interested at www.scrapweaver.com
