Vintage Couture Acrylic Home Decor

Hello Craft Friends!

Dana here! I have a Home Decor project idea using Clear Scraps 3x8 Wide Scallop Album, Click here  Clothes Hangers Chipboard Click here and 5.5 x 11 Acrylic Tab Slimline album Click here



I love Vintage clothing from back in the day. I think the styles of clothing were so classy and elegant! Don't you? So for my project today, we will be using Graphic45 "Couture Paper pad 8x8 and some items from my crafty stash!

We will be using only the top Acrylic Slimline album piece as our base for this project. You can save the other pages for a future project. In addition,  we will only use the top Chipboard tag from the Wide Scallop Album. 

I will be inking all my papers using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Gathered Twigs. 

First I chose 2 coordinating papers from the 8x8 pad and traced, cut and glued my (chic) paper onto my chipboard tag base. I trimmed away any excess paper and smoothed out any rough edges. I cut my 2nd coordinating paper (Accessories") to measure 3x3. Then glue in place. Taking some Graphic45 Gold and black washi tape, I applied on an angle across the upper left corner and bottom right corner. Then I cut out one of the small Journaling cards (Stylish) and adding foam dots to the backside, I adhered on top of my previous two layers. I glued a tiny button along the bottom. Added a few Gold Dazzle stickers over the two holes on my chipboard tag and on each bottom corners. Then adding some foam tape onto the back of tag, I adhered it in the center of my acrylic album piece. I cut one of the border sentiments and glued on the acrylic tab on the bottom edge. Here's a closeup!


Cut apart one of the chipboard hangers (save the other hanger for another future project) I applied with my finger some silver Gliding Wax over the top part of the hanger. Then I applied some Gold Gliding Wax to the bottom portion of my hanger.


On the left side, I cut a piece from tthat measures 3x4 inches and adhered onto my acrylic bbase.i glued my hanger at a slight angle across the top of my paper. I added a tiny white bow onto my hanger. I fussy cut acouple vintage fashion gals and adhered on my paper using foam dots. I added a button card with foam dots on the lower left side. Here's a closeup!


For the right side, i cut another paper (Lovely) to measure 3x 4 &1/4 inches. I matted one of the larger Journaling cards on top. Then adhered on the right side. I fussy cut two of the postage stamps and stapled them onto the lower left side of my journal card. Here's a closeup!


To finish this project,  I took two pieces of gold tulle, and thread through each hole on the left and right side, then tied into a bow! I repeated this in the middle using some white tulle. Here's my finished project!


Now it's ready to display and enjoy!
