Framed Paper Tropical Leaves Assembly Tutorial
Framed Paper Tropical Leaves assembly tutorial
I can’t wait for winter. Here in California it’s been a balmy 110F. If you’re a summer person, make this project to hold onto those bright summer days. I didn’t use ANY glue or adhesive with this project! The frames simply fold together. Keep reading for further instructions.
What you’ll need:
- 4 sheets white cardstock
- 1 sheet 12×12 green cardstock
- Framed Tropical Paper Leaves cut file found in the Silhouette Design Store
How to assemble:
Start by cutting out the designs using your Silhouette CAMEO or cutting machine. The assembly for this project goes super quick! The longest part is the cutting. Take the frame piece, and fold up on all of the score lines. Fold the edge pieces in, starting from the farthest edge piece. Kind of curl it under. You’ll see the frame edges taking shape. You’ll see two opposite edges, with angled corners. You’ll want to fold these over first, hold them down with one hand. Then take a straight edge, fold it over, and tuck it into the two angled sides. Repeat with the remaining side. Push the sides together to make the frame stick in place.
Next we’ll place in the paper tropical leaves. I didn’t use glue for these either. I stuck the edges of the leaves under the edge of the frame, depending on the thickness of the paper you used, you’ll be able to wedge the leaves in there & they’ll stay. I liked the 3D effect it gave off, with the leaves kind of popping off of the background. If you’re more comfortable glueing them down, go for it.
Hang or put on a bookcase, and you’re done! Such an easy project, with a lot of that wow factor. Enjoy!
