Guest Designer for Amanda's Crafts and More... Giveaway details too!

Hello, and let me start by saying thank you to Amanda for having me as one of her guest designers I am truly honored and so excited to be here!!!  I have made a fun Thankful display box to share with you today, and you will be amazed at how easy it is to create ( I sure was! ).

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Little Yellow Bicycles (Hello, Fall! Autumn Tree)
Sticker: Creative Memories
Black Vinyl: Provo Craft
Cricut Machine: Calligraphy Cartridge
Pearl: Recollections
Adhesive: Glue Dots

I started by cutting my "Thankful" sentiment out of black vinyl with my Cricut Expression and adhered it to the glass.  The background of the display was already a nice cream colored material, which I felt was perfect for the look I was going for.  I then fussy cut the tree and leaves out, placing them on a white piece of paper as I cut each one out to keep it in the same order as on the original paper.  I then trimmed the trunk of the tree down and moved each piece over to the inside of the display, adhering them one at a time with glue dots. ( A great little tip is that since there is material as the backdrop everything will be removable and the display case can be used over and over again.)   I then adhered by sticker, pearl and pictures!  See, I told you it was easy!!! We would love to see what you make so link up your Thankful projects with us at Amanda's Crafts and More and have a great rest of the week!
Happy Crafting and thank you again Amanda!!!
