2016-03-03; February’s Shoebox; Project #1


For the month of February, Jane was our hostess. The hostess is the first one to “teach” us how to do our project. It frees her up at the end of the evening so she can step away and prepare a light treat for all of us.

This month Jane told us she went to Pinterest and found instructions on how to make an easy version of this card. It looks like each square is matted however the base square is actually only two pieces. Can you see it? There are two, 2×2″ squares that are layered to be a star shape. Then 1″ squares in assorted DP were layered with just a spot of glue in the center so all of it could be arranged properly. Genus!

Here is a close up of the center. She found these ready made flowers on the clearance rack. I added three of them in a circle for the center.

And one last look before you go on about your day…

Thank you Jane for sharing your research and having your husband bake that tasty brownie dessert for all of us!

    Great combination of papers and I love the design of the card. I would love the instructions for this or a way to find it on Pinterest.

      cut two, 2-5/8″ squares and 8 1-1/4″ squares

      take the two larger squares and stack as shown, glue in place.

      put a drop of glue in the center of the stacked squares and then add the smaller squares at each “point”. Just weave the squares until all the points are filled.

      This easy version made the design go fast! Hope that helps!
