A very Happy New Year, pretty Pebbles people! I´m Eileen E. Darling, here on this day as a guest designer before the design team for 2019 take their turn. Maybe, including me!?
Before that happens, I´d like to show you a really easy way to create paper polaroids you can give to your Lovelies as a gift/lucky charm. To recraft them, you don´t even need that much! – just some pretty paper sheets, stickers, embellishments, a roller stamp, black ink + a Trim/Score Board, Frame Punch Board, and of course a scissor and some tape – every passionate crafter owns!
I´ve used the collection Along The Way that comes with matching die-cuts, epoxy stickers, phrase stickers, thickers and the roller phrase/date stamp Dear Lizzy by American Crafts. Let’s start & celebrate the crafting!
Step 1: trim the chosen 12×12 papers to 2 1/2 x 3 3/4. The result are 12 various paper pieces.
Step 2: use half of them–only 6 of the paper pieces on the Frame Punch Board to create paper polaroids, because the other 6 are the backgrounds for the die-cuts (girls & flower pots).
a – on the left you measure .25, on the right it´s also .25, punch the paper, then turn the paper to the other side and punch again.
b – on the left you measure 1, on the right it´s .25, then turn the paper to the other side and punch again.
c – measure 1, use the blade to cut the paper with the large side along the line, then measure .25, move the paper to the right direction and cut again.
Repeat this two times until the middle is falling out and a real paper polaroid shows up. (If you need more help, please follow the official instructions of the Frame Punch Board.)
Step 3: stamp a “2019” on the right top at the paper polaroids with the flower pots.
Step 4: cut off the legs of the girls – I know it sounds and looks mean, but they´re way too long to fit in this polaroid.
Step 5: use tape to put the polaroid frames including the backs, the girls and flower pots.
Step 6: place the “2019” thickers, phrase stickers and epoxy stickers at the almost finished paper polaroids. (Other drops, dots, sequins can be also used.)
If you´re done, you have sweet six new year´s gifts. I hope, that you feel this inspired to recreate the polaroids and that I´ll get the chance to be back here again, but for now I´m wishing YOU a wonderful year full of happines, healthiness, luck & lots of
