by Monika Graefling-Gladysiak

Posted on September 03 2020

Hello, Monika here, I hope you have a wonderful day! Today, I've got an Autumn/Fall project using leaves dies and Rinea foiled paper.


You are going to need Rinea foiled paper: Merlot, Merlot Starstruck, Copper, Copper Starstruck, Gold, Gold Starstruck, Marigold, Marigold Starstruck, Ruby, Ruby Starstruck, Emerald, Emerald Starstruck, Mocha, Mocha Starstruck, cutting dies with leaves shapes, a rectangular cutting die, a pencil, craft knife, black card, scoreboard, liquid glue, photos of your choice.


Step 1:
Cut 6 pieces of black card to 17.5cm x 24cm. Use a scoring board to score: 1cm, 16.5cm (on 17.5cm) and 1cm, 12.5cm (on 24cm). Then, take the rectangular cutting die (14.5cm x 10.5cm), if you don't have a die with this exact measurement use a craft knife to create a die cut. Cut small diagonal lines on the flaps.

 
Step 2: 
Cut 6 panels from Merlot and Merlot Starstruck foiled paper measuring 15 cm x 11 cm, use a pencil to draw big leaves on them, and use a craft knife to cut the shape of the leaves. Adhere the Merlot panels inside the frames and stick the side flaps to create pockets, don't adhere to the top flap.


Step 3:
Use CopperCopper StarstruckGoldGold StarstruckMarigoldMarigold StarstruckRubyRuby StarstruckEmeraldEmerald StarstruckMochaMocha Starstruck to die cut a selection of leaves. Adhere your leaves in the corners of your frames.


Step 4:

Step 6: 
Hang your project on the wall and admire your creation :)


Happy crafting!
