Welcome back to Monday’s Maker Moments!
For those of you who are new to this blog, let us catch you up on what we all are about. First, we are Michelle and Debi and we are Art & Craft Designers for Spellbinders. The purpose of this blog is to feature EASY projects using basic dies or dies that can be broken down into simple projects. Usually our plan is to use only one or two die sets. We see a big trend rising for things that are made less complicated. They are often created with recycled, upcycled or leftover items. We attempt to bring you something fresh and new every Monday so we hope you will continue to check back in and see what we’ve been up to. Of course, one of our favorite things to do is to decorate for parties. Actually, we are PASSIONATE about parties. So, today we are featuring our Circle die to create a party. We loved choosing colors that are festive and fun.
The largest item for this party ensemble is our hanging circles that have been glued onto string and then strung onto an embroidery hoop. I think the variation of colors really ties the decorations together.
Oh Hey…what can be simpler than making a card from circles and just doodling around them or in them? The leaves are circles too! We just bent them in half and gave them the appearance of leaves by shaping them that way with our marker.
More doodling fun. What can you create with circles? Your imagination gives you limitless possibilities.
Make your own “ribbon” by stitching circles together. Simply adding more circles on top of existing circles gives dimension to your ribbon. Create yards of this and wrap it around a piece of cardboard so that you will have it on hand for the next celebration. What an inexpensive embellishment to create with just scraps of paper!
Need a cupcake stand? Try cutting some circles and adhering them to a paper-covered spool. Place your cupcake on top and taa-dah!!
A party isn’t a party without a party favor. Create layered circles and adhere them on another circle and build them out. Embellish the center using a rhinestone. We filled tubes with green candy to create the stems. So, what do you think? Easy peasy? What can you create using circles? Leave us a comment and let us know or send us your picture of your project. Remember to make it simple.
Thanks again for joining us here at Maker Moments,
