December Daily® 2020 | Story Twelve

For my 12th December Daily® story I decided to feature the wrapping paper I'm using this year (from Paper SourceAnthropologie). 

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.

    Vintage Ali in the house. Loved this, reminded me so much of back in the day when you used word strip stickers regularly. Remember some of your original Week In A Life albums? Fun to see this throwback. You taught me to stack word stickers on photos and journaling. This is my 13th DD, can't believe it. I loved it from the get go. Thanks, Ali

    LOVE this! Question: Are you using a regular sewing machine and needle? I love the idea of sewing on paper but have never done it before.

      Hi - yes, pretty sure it's just a regular needle!
