Holiday Wall Hanging
Instructions Step 1 - Using the Wishblade and light colored shimmer cardstock, draw and cut 13 circles approximately 4 inches tall with two 1/2 inch circles on opposite sides for stringing ribbon through.
Step 2 - Using Wishblade and darker colored shimmer cardstock, cut out the letters to spell "Happy Holidays" in font of choice. Adhere to centers of circles using the Xyron 250 machine.
Step 3 - Using Wishblade Create and Cut software, draw a curved teardrop shape that is approximately 4" tall to use as petals for poinsettia. Make a mirrored copy, then copy both shapes again and shrink to approximately 3" in height. The mirrored images are needed so the petals can curve in different directions while showing the shimmer side of the cardstock.
Step 4 - Cut a total of seven larger petals, and seven smaller petals using darker shimmer cardstock. Layer larger petals in a circle and adhere to each other using 3/8" adhesive runner. Layer smaller petals in a circle and adhere to each other and the larger petals using 3/8" adhesive runner. Position smaller petals so they lay between the spaces of the larger petals. Use three of the 1/2" circles from step one and adhere to the center of the flower.
Step 5 - Using scraps of light colored shimmer cardstock cut 2 large snowflakes with Xyron Personal Cutting System and Holiday Shapes book.
Step 6 - Run ribbon through circles spelling Happy, leave 2 inches of ribbon between each circle and trim ends to leave approximately 10 inches on each end. Adhere ribbon to backs of circles using a small amount of adhesive from the 3/8" runner.
Step 7 - Repeat step 6 with the circles spelling Holiday. Attach the two strands to each other by tying a small knot with the loose ends of ribbon. Use remaining ribbon to tie two bows over the knots on each end of the wall hanging.
Step 8 - Adhere a piece of fishing line to the backs of the flower and the two snowflakes using a piece of scrap paper run through the Xyron 150.
