Make It Monday #79 - Fabric Die Cuts

Hi there!!

I have a project today for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #79 - Fabric Die Cuts. To change things up, i made a Christmas ornament. :)

First i die cut the ornament and angel from chipboard. For my fabric i used some rustic muslin and backed it with some interfacing. I find that this helps when  die cutting the fabric.

After i die cut the angel from the fabric, i stamped the angel and the wings. I then used just a touch of glue to adhere the fabric angel to the die cut angel.

Next i die cut the ornament and a tiny heart from an old story book. I then distressed the ornament and heart with some ink. I adhered the heart to the angel and the ornament to the chipboard ornament.

I then stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of fabric, trimmed it and then notched the ends. Last i adhered the angel and then the sentiment to the ornament. Added a little twine to hang the ornament.

Have a great day!

  1. very pretty the shape and that angel is too it

  2. This is a charming tag, especially so with the chosen sentiment. I am in the process of working out the design of my card with muslin and Melis's other set, Love Lives Here. Hope it turns out as good as yours.

  3. I love your tag! The color combination, elements and sentiment are perfect. Great job!
