DSC_0302I’m still set styling ya’ll. I’ve completed another project to grace our background wall. It was  pretty quick and easy to complete. Here’s what you’ll need to try it for yourself:

A hot glue gun (I know, I know, it’s not in the picture – I had too much faith in the regular glue. You need the glue gun.) a ruler, 5×7 canvas, card stock of your   choice at least 7×9, silk flowers with leaves, and a pair of scissors.

Carefully pull the silk flowers and leaves off the wire stems. Play around with them on the cardstock to get a feel for how many you need to get the look you want. I decided to use three flowers since my canvas is pretty small.

Lay the cardstock down, print side down and lie place the canvas on it and center it. Use the ruler and pencil to draw a straight line at the same angel as the corner edge of the canvas.

Fold one edge over the side of the canvas and the side flat to make a bend. Place hot glue on the bend and press onto the canvas. Pull the cardstock tight and repeat on the opposite side.

…and here’s the finished product! I really enjoyed making this one. I like instant gratification and this project took all of 30 minutes to complete.

We’ve only got one more project to complete and we’ll be almost done with the background wall for our YouTube videos. Thanks for letting me share this creative journey with you!

Until we meet again, smile, live, love and be grateful.
