Welcome to the Cliquekits international blog! It’s Josefine here with a new share for you! The theme for today is "handmade with love"
I had to think about what I wanted to make. Soon I figured it out. I wanted to make a memories catcher (the original idea was a dream catcher) The idea is to decorate pictures of happy moments and attach them into this memories catcher. This is also a fabulous idea for a gift, think about your mother/father, best friend or a person you share beautiful memories with....
We start with a metal decorative ring that is wrapped with golden yarn. Then I go through the center with the yarn and created a star. Now I can attach photos or cards to it. For this project I use the beautiful collection "Take Flight" from Rosie's Studio. This is such a gorgeous and colorful collection. It's really makes my happy! This beautiful kit is still available at the Cliquekits website.
For the decoration of this memories catcher I make three large paper flowers. Using three colors of cardstock. I made a short video, that you can watch on my Instagram. I cut out the flowers with my cricut maker and curled the edges of the flowers. I glued them together with adshive tape. You can choose any flower to make your own paper flowers.
I folded the yellow origami flower and placed it between the two large flowers. On my IG there is also a video how I folded this origami flower! I punched out the leaves with different metal dies and stitched them with golden thread. I did the same with the butterflies. The little cards with photos, I made from different design papers and die-cuts. The tassels are made from design papers as well. These tassels are so much fun to make. Also perfect for a mini album! I decorated the ring with all my paper flowers, leaves and die-cuts.
I love how my memories catcher turned out
I think it's a cool idea and hope you'll like it too! Wish you all a beautiful and creative day!
