Mini wood pallets with Leah
February 13, 2019
Hi Clear Scraps friends! Today I'm sharing these brand new miniature wooden pallets. They are so fun to work with, and I'll share with you how I created them.
When I was placing the paper on the wood slats, I wanted the butterfly located near the neck. A trick I figured out was to hold the paper up to a light source, along with the pallet, to figure out placement of the patterns in relation to the position on the wood.
Then I just carefully turned the paper over and marked a few spots on the paper so I could lift the wood away and add my glue. This helps to get the wood back in the spot I chose.
Using a craft knife, cut away the excess paper and embellish.
This one came together quickly. Using the Modellier Cream from the 2019 January Q Kit, I applied the cream all around the edge of the heart using my fingertip.
Once dried, I traced the heart onto a piece of paper, and cut inside the traced image by 1/4".
I popped up the heart paper using foam dots, then enbellished with enamel dots. Voila!
This one is my favorite. The jar and the twine just make me happy. I started by adhering the jar pallet to pattern paper. I used my craft knife to cut in between the slats on the backside of the jar.
Then flip the jar pattern side up to finish cutting the paper by gently placing your craft knife against the edge of the cut line.
Once the inside slats are cut, finish up by removing the excess paper around the edges.
Next, add some twine to the top of the jar.
Embellish. These are perfect for mini albums, scrapbook pages, or magnets!
