I knew I would be working with the half-circle base page because I want to use the other side for a story tomorrow. My initial idea turned into a fun adventure adding a bunch of word/phrase pieces and turning the whole half circle into a shaker. Check out the video for the full how-to details.
As you'll see above today's story doesn't include any words. You could easily add a story in the location where I added word/phrase stickers or add a second half circle if you have a longer story. I honestly didn't have much to say about the papers this time around so this approach worked just fine for me today.
Here's a look at how this one came together:
Now let's take a closer look via images:
I initially printed my wrapping paper photo into a square that was 8.25 inches x 8.25 inches. I used the half-circle die cut as my template to trim out the photo. I intentionally took the photo of my wrapping paper with a white top section so I could add something to the top - that ended up being word/phrase stickers.
Next I grabbed a piece of thinner transparency and cut it to the same half circle shape. I ran the transparency and the photo page through my sewing machine + left an opening that allowed me to add in the green sequins, the white sequins, the chipboard heart, and the white wood stars. After adding all those pieces I stitched the hole closed.
This was seriously so fun to make and just made me happy while making it.
On the outside I added the #12 using white puffy number stickers and a phrase from the perforated phrases in the Main Kit.
