Paris Flea Market Lace

Welcome to the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge.  If you've arrived here from Donna's blog, you're in the right place. If you'd like to hop from the beginning, please start at Club Scrap.

We were given the task of creating three new and fresh ways to use the Paper Lace Mats from the Paris Flea Market collection. Even though these beauties look fragile, they do hold up pretty well to slicing, dicing and stamping. 


While out shopping I saw these cute little eggs covered in dictionary pages and embellished. The store wanted $10 for each egg! Have they lost their minds?!  I could so make that.  So I did :)  After cutting out the center of the lace mat I used the masterboard technique to stamp the paper. 


I then applied bookbinding glue to the mat and wrapped some Dollar Tree plastic eggs. I wrapped some waxy thread and added a little tag.
These came out even cuter than I expected!

Well, what to do with the left over edges? I covered the remaining eggs in bookbinding glue and wrapped them with twine.
I used the scalloped edges as a small border...tada...super cute twine eggs!

Now I need a basket.  I tied the sides of a lacy mat to create a small box, used chipboard on the bottom for strength and added fluff.  I think next time I might use fabric stiffening spray to the paper lace to make it more sturdy.




I hope I gave you some creative ways to use your paper mats.
 I love using my craft supplies for other purposes and not limit myself to cards, tags and pages. 

 Please continue on to see what Tina has created for you!

Woven Strands Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Woven Strands blog hop! If you've arrived here from Lilian's Leaf Studio you are in the right place.   If you've happened upon the hop, please don't miss anything and start with Karen at Club Scrap. When I first received the Woven Strands kit from Club Scrap I immediately thought of our family reunion after seeing the stamps.  The tree and quotes were just screaming "family".  I gathered up my photos, chose the papers that complimented my photos and then found a layout in the Idea Deck that worked with my photos.  Here I chose the 5 of Clubs from Volume V. I left a few elements out and added a few of my own. I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
