Proxxon Tools: Hotwire Cutter
Earth Safe Finishes Licorice Chalk It Up Paint
May Arts ribbon
So Suzy Stamp
I drew a Pilgrim hat on a sheet of Smoothfoam, then usually the Hotwire Cutter, I carefully cut it out.
Because I am still learning how to use the cutter properly, I cut away sections of the design as I worked.
And the final result looks pretty good. Using the Hotwire Cutter, I was able to cut the hat in less than 15 minutes.
Next, I painted the hat with Earth Safe Finishes Chalk It Up Paint in Licorice, leaving spots of white showing. A black ribbon and a silver belt buckle finished the hat. Since it needed a little "something", I added some seasonal flora for a fun touch.
Next I made some place settings. Since I needed a circular base for my place settings I cut them from Smoothfoam using the Hotwire Cutter. I also cut a Smoothfoam ball in half using the Hotwire Cutter.
Each piece was painted with Licorice Chalk It Up Paint, then assembled and decorated with cardstock and ribbon. I added some coordinating flora around the edges to coordinate with the Pilgrim hat. Happy Thanksgiving was stamped and added to each.
Thanks for stopping by today.
