Today, I'm sharing a Valentine's paper crafting project that I've had on my "must-do" list for quite some time....
I'm addicted to decorative cloches that showcase small collections of items. I thought it would be fun to take some of the fun components from the Simon Says Stamp February 2013 Card Kit, new (and old!) favorite love-themed stamps and other items from my crafting stash to create a Valentine's Cloche. And just between me and you.... this won't be the last one you will see before February 14th. I'm almost finished with two more! I'm telling ya, they are super addictive!
The Simon Says Stamp February 2013 Card Kit is available at Simon Says Stamp HERE.
I loved the tiny polka dot envelopes and doilies in the February 2013 Card Kit and they provided the "base" for most of the embellishments in my cloche. I also incorporated cardstock, the wooden hearts, silk floral and round tag from the February Kit. Additional stamping and supplies from my stash rounded out the "ingredients" for my cloche.
I bought a package of cork "tiles" from my local discount store. The ones you can hang on the wall to create a cork board. They are fairly thin and can easily be cut. I measured the glass opening and created a circle template to trace onto the cork (slightly smaller than the opening on the cloche). I cut out the circle and placed it on the cloche base and added my embellished envelopes and hearts by placing them on Tim Holtz stick pins and pushing them into the cork. Easy peasy!
