Blue Noel Paper Pad Project – DCWV

Hello!  Thanks for joining me today for a special project!  I was lucky enough to receive the Blue Noel Paper Pad by DCWV to make a project!

I quickly decided to take advantage of the pretty double-sided paper and make snowflakes!  Boy did I make snowflakes!  I cut them on my Silhouette using cut files from Paige Evans and the Silhouette store.  I punched snowflakes using a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and die cut them with a Sizziz Snowflake die.  So I had plenty of gorgeous snowflakes on hand!

I decided to make two canvases,  the first is 8×8 and the second is 6×6.  I chose the 6×4 Joy card from the cut apart sheet to be my focal point on the larger canvas.  I painted around the edges of both canvases with gold paint and then adhered paper cut a bit smaller than the size of the canvas so there would be a gold reveal.

I layered snowflakes to tuck behind the card and round tag.  To add a bit of glitz and sparkle, I strung three chandelier crystals on a fishing string and attached them to the canvas with hot glue.  I then added snowflakes to the hanging lines with glue dots.

For the smaller canvas, I used a star card from the cut apart sheet and a love banner.  I layered it over lots of stars for pretty dimension!  I strung one crystal line from the small canvas.  I finished off both canvases with a few stickers from the sticker sheet included in the paper pad.

The patterns on the papers are so pretty!  The gold glitter paper adds sparkle and interest!

I still had a bunch of snowflakes left, so I decided to make some holiday cards!  The first card features smaller snowflakes and stickers.

For the next card, I used the gorgeous floral paper as a background and layered up some big snowflakes.  This one I will hand out in person as it won’t fit in an envelope!!  The round stickers make the perfect centers for snowflakes!

The last card has one big snowflake cluster with a larger sticker in the center.  The sticker sheet on the paper pad has a variety of sentiments for both winter and Christmas!

I hope you enjoyed my projects!  Be sure to check out Die Cuts With a View’s holiday offerings!
