Hey y'all! Happy Monday to you! Aymee Gandy from A Scraphappy Southernbelle here with you on this beautiful day to share a bit of home decor' that I created for the upcoming Easter holiday. I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend! Anyone get any scrappin' done? I managed to do a few things, but not too much. I enjoyed spending a lazy weekend with my hubby! Anyways, on to the tutorial. Here is the project I'd like to share with you today. It's a hanging paper topiary made using my Cricut, Gypsy, and crafting supplies. This is such an easy project to do and really can add a festive flair to your home any time of the year!HERE is the link where you can find complete instructions and a template in case you do not own a cutting machine. I have made a standing topiary in an urn using this pattern a few years ago, but I thought it would also make a great hanging topiary. Now, I took pictures during my process so I could share the steps with you.
1. Now, I made a 5" topiary, but you could really make this any size you would like. It all really depends on what size circles you cut. Using the Plantin' Schoolbook Cricut cartridge (or any cartridge with a circle), cut 20-2 3/4" circles. You can cut these in all one color or varying colors/patterns like I have below. For this project, I chose some Easter themed paper from American Crafts and solid cardstock.
A tip...if you are like me and do not have one of those nifty Scor-Pal's, you can use the groove in your standard paper trimmer and a bone folder.
3. After you have all of the circles scored, you will want to fold up the flaps like this:
Have a fabulous week! Happy Scrappin'!
