DCWV and Tombow USA Gold and Cork Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Die Cuts with a View (DCWV) and Tombow USA Gold and Cork Blog Hop!  We have 2 days full with gorgeous projects using GOLD and CORK! You probably came here from Rita Barakat's blog but if you happened to stumble across my blog, please go to the Tombow USA Blog (on Friday) DCWV Blog (on Saturday) to start!


Now on to my Bridal Shower Faux Cake Centerpiece Gold and Cork project using the DCWV 6" x 6" Adhesive Cork Stack, DCWV Gilded Paper Stack, Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive, Tombow Adhesive Dots, Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue and Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Tabs.


HERE'S HOW I MADE IT!

Measure and cut papers from DCWV Gilded Paper Stack to fit around outside of round paper mache stacking boxes.  Attach with Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive - remembering to snap Xtreme Adhesive off at a 90 degree angle.

Repeat above steps with round box lids and rims, mixing and matching the decorative papers from the DCWV Gilded Paper Stack to create interest and dimension.

Apply Tombow Adhesive Dot to bottom of 3 wooden eggs, peel off liner and attach to cardboard for spray painting with Design Master ColorTool Brilliant Gold.  TIP:  The adhesive dot allows the round object to remain in place while it is spray painted.
 

Die cut two (2) labels from DCWV Adhesive Cork Stack and one (1) from chipboard.

Peel back adhesive liner paper and apply cork labels to either side of chipboard label.

"Stain" YOU & ME wooden embellishment with Tombow Dual Brush Pen Chocolate #969.  Remove a bit of the ink with a baby wipe to show the wood grain.  Paint the ampersand with gold acrylic paint.  Punch hole at the bottom, insert bird charm on safety pin with jump rings.


Cut out journal card from DCWV Gilded Paper Stack, then hand write names and dates with Tombow Dual Brush Pen Chocolate #969.  Embellish with additional heart themed papers.  Insert into nest using metal memo pin.

Attach grapevine wreath to top of medium round box with Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue.  TIP:  Rest something heavy on top to weight wreath down until glue dries.

Embellish boxes with paper trims created from the DCWV Gilded Paper Stack, rick rack, lace, pearls, decorative trims, stick pins, metal charms and ribbons applied with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, Adhesive Dots and Xtreme Adhesive Tabs.  I used a bunch of products from my craft stash!
