Out of this World Card - Make It Monday #89 - Creating Windows for Floating Images

This week's Make it Monday was a fun idea - floating an image over a window.

I thought the rocket seemed like a perfect fit for this technique.

Here it is opened.

And the inside.  It was pretty simple, just required a bit of precision with lining up the layers.

Fun Pinterest Inspiration - Chevron Wreaths

I found this super cute wreath on Pinterest a few weeks ago and loved the idea.

Once I found a pool noodle (not so easy in October!), it was a pretty quick project.  I made a cardboard template for cutting the chevron pieces.

I didn't care for the burlap flowers, so I made felt fringe flowers by folding a strip of felt in half lengthwise, making small cuts every 1/4 inch.  Then you roll it up, glue it and stick it on the wreath.
