Photoreal Seasons Stack Projects!

Hey guys!

Hope everyone is enjoying their week!! I have been working on a million little things that all add up to long days in my office! Funny how that works :) But I am loving what I am doing...as I always do :) But it is pretty weird to be working on so much HALLOWEEN in the middle of summer!! lol :) Fun!!

I wanted to share a couple of quick projects using our current "Photoreal Seasons Stack" that is at Michael's right now. 



I love to see complete projects using the photoreal papers because I think some people may look at them and wonder how to incorporate the papers into the project that they are working on. I love these two projects and wanted to share them! I think they capture the photo real look in a very cool way!


One is a recipe book and the other is a frame. I love how vibrant the colors are in this stack! Here are some step by step instructions. And as always, you can really use any kind of DCWV stack in creating your projects!


Autumn Recipe Book
SUPPLY LIST
  • DCWV Phororeal Seasons Stack 
  • Stand-up Photo album with rings 
  • Assortment of brown ribbon in varying widths and lengths, including: •••”, 3/8” and 5/8”, with the longest piece at least 24” in length and the shortest 3 •••” in length. 
  • Seasonal rub-on 
  • Alphabet stickers 
  • Paper crafting adhesive 
  • Hole punch (slightly larger then rings) 
  • Paper trimmer 
  • Scissors 
  • Pencil 
  • Ruler 


PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS

1. Take out 2 coordinating prints. Set one aside. 

2. Separate photo album from rings. Set sheet protectors aside. 

3. Using the cover and back section of the photo album as a template, trace around both with your pencil so that you will have exactly enough to cover both pieces (will need 3 pieces total to cover the front and both sides of the back). Cut out. Cover the front side of the photo album cover as well as the front and back sides of the back cover. Punch holes in the appropriate places so that they will slide back onto rings. 

4. Adhere two pieces of coordinating brown ribbon directly to front, tucking excess around onto the back. Embellish the front with desired rub-ons and alphabet sticker sayings. 

5. While top section is off, measure, cut and attach amount needed to cover base of album stand. *Tip: If possible, remove section of rings that attaches to base for easier application. Finish off base by adhering thin ribbon around the outside edge. 

6. Put album parts back onto the rings. Tie a ribbon in a knot to the left ring. 

7. Finish off book by slipping your most delectable recipes into the different page protectors. 


    Sunflower Frame & Quote 

    SUPPLY LIST
    • DCWV Phororeal Seasons Stack 
    • 11 •••” square frame 
    • 5/8” coordinating ribbon (need approximately 30” of ribbon) 
    • Coordinating vellum quote 
    • Papercrafting adhesive 
    • Paper trimmer 
    • Scissors 
    • Craft knife 
    • Pencil 
    • Ruler 



    PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Take out 2 sheets of the same print. Set one aside. 

    2. Take out back of frame and lay this on the back side, center, of the first sheet. Trace around it with a pencil and cut out. Apply this directly to the inside back section of your frame. 

    3. Cut your second sheet to the exact size as the frame. Use your remaining section (the edge of the page) and trace around the inside of the section onto the back of the 2nd sheet. Cut out this section and adhere this directly to the frame. 

    4. Using your remaining paper scraps, cut out different petals from the flowers (at least 9). Use your pencil to create a curl in the flower. Adhere the inside point of each petal to the corresponding section of the flower. 

    5. Add a vellum quote to the inside, on the right-hand side of the frame. 

    6. Finish off frame by tying ribbon around frame.
