Little Claire's Weekly Project...Wall Hanging

Hello Crafters,

It's Gemma here and it's my turn for Little Claire's weekly project and as it's Mother's day here in Britain on the 10th March i decide to make a special gift to give and share with you how i made it *smiles*
I have used one of the new release's called 'Butterfly Blossom'...omg it's gorgeous and i can't stop using this stamp, you can find the stamp here for £4.50

Without further ado here's a picture of my weekly project...hope you likey *smiles*


Spellbinders plain circle nesties
Xcut 'Bloom' nesting die
Marianne Designs 'Butterfly' die
Promarkers...caramel, buttercup and primrose
Darice 'Dots' embossing folder
White, yellow and kraft card {stash}
Ribbon {stash}

1) Cut 4 yellow circle using the largest circle of your Spellbinders and cut 2 kraft blooms using your Xcut 'Bloom' dies.
2) Emboss your 4 yellow circle with the Darice embossing folder and attached 2 of them on to your 2 kraft blooms.

3) Turn over the 2 kraft blooms and attach your ribbon with extra tacky tape like the picture above, making sure you have a hoop at the top and 2 tails hanging from the bottom.

4) Now attach your other 2 embossed circles to the backs of the kraft blooms and this will cover the ribbons to make it look neat.

5) Now cut 2 white circles using your Spellbinders which i chose the next size down from the largest you have used previously to cut the yellow circles. Stamp the Butterfly Blossom image on to 1 circle and coloured in with promarkers. 
6) Using the Daisy Dot stamp set...stamp the letters spelling Mam on to some scrap white card and colour with promakers, now cut these letters out and attach to the 2nd white circle using foam pads.
Tip: Go around the edge of your white circles with your buttercup promarker and then with the primrose promarker to give the circles a little glow.

7) Using foam pads attach your circle containing the word Mam on to your top bloom of your wall hanging and add a little bow too.
8) Using the Marianne design 'Butterfly' die cut out a kraft butterfly and a yellow decorative part and attach to your wall hanging like to picture above.

9) Using foams now attach your Butterfly Blossom image circle on to the bottom bloom of your wall hanging, now cut out another butterfly but in the opposite colours from which your did in step 8 and attach this to one of your tails of your wall hanging.

Now you have finished your wall hanging and it should look like this...



This wall hanging could be for any special lady in your life, just changed the letters!!
