Welcome Home Succulent Five

When opening your Welcome Home Wreath Kit, you will notice that each “plant” is labeled. Today, I will be showing you a few tips for making Succulent Six.  You will follow the same instructions to make (2) Succulent Five and Succulent Six.  Below the instructions is a list of the products I used to create these paper succulents.

Purchase this kit to attend my FREE  Workshop  and receive one-on-one instructions to create this beautiful home decor project. 

As you noticed in my previous posts, I wanted each of my paper succulents to look like a real plant.   This succulent with the brownish edges caught my eye. I decided to use it as inspiration creating Succulent Six. Image result for succulents

I debated using Desert Sand or Chocolate ink for this succulent, but both seemed to bold to me. Instead, I used our Round Sponge and Fern Exclusive Ink Pad, I inked the edges of each of the Succulent Six pieces.

To curl the leaves of the smaller pieces, I used the rounded end of our Piercing and Embossing Tool . I placed the mat under my leaves and gently rubbed the rounded end on the inner part of each leaf to create the curl. img_20161225_124009517_hdr
Once again, I found it much easier to layer each of the sizes together first.  I used our Bonding Memories Glue Pen to assemble each layer. This glue also gave me a little time to rotate the pieces if needed before it dried. img_20161225_124347070_hdr
Once each of the layers had dried, I stacked them from largest to smallest. Once again, I used our Bonding Memories Glue Pen and rotated each until it looked like the real plant.  To add curl to each leaf, I used our Tweezers .

The kit comes with Gold Dot stickers. I took a rolled Micro Glue Dot and placed it under each a sticker to give it a three-dimensional look. You can add more gold embellishment by edging the leaves with our New Gold Shimmer Brush.
