DIY Welcome Garland with Bird Watcher

By Teresa Cruz aka Andor Violeta

“Hello everyone,

What a special project this is!!! I have to tell you, this is a very important project because i made it to welcome the senior people who have returned again to the activities of the center where I work. We missed them a lot as they missed us and the activities. With all the caution we are trying to return with the activities with them, so what a better way to make them feel welcome and loved than this beautiful spring garland made with this amazing Bird Watcher collection.



You can see I used an entire pack of regular tags in ivory and the matching die from graphic 45. This matching dies are life savers i love how my tags look with the beautiful papers perfectly cutted like this… I also used a die from other set, to make the bottom tag on front of the other tag.





This collection has amazing papers, with a lot of flowers and birds to fussy cut!! of course i complement with the ephemera assortments. My imagination flies with this beauties.







This amazing rosettes were made with a die from Tim Holtz (sizzix #657177), as well as the letters (sizzix #664169). Look at all this colours together, what a joy!!





Tips: For this project and for others, if you want a beautiful but still simple 3D effect, you just have to think about layers. Other tip remember your dies, they are a huge help to make different shapes and add dynamic to your projects.




This collection has amazing papers, with a lot of flowers and birds to use and to cut!!

The green ribbon is “Saris” from Sara (Sara Ferret), made in India.
