We're kicking off the back-to-school year today at the
ECHO PARK PAPER BLOG
with a quilted door hanging welcome sign!
It makes a great back-to-school gift for your favorite teacher and the kids can help too.
Start with the 6X6 Paper Pad from the “Teacher’s Pet” Collection.
Choose as many patterns as you’d like (I chose six).
Cut the papers into 3x3 squares.
Next, arrange the squares in an alternating design pattern. Begin attaching
to a piece of 12X12 cardstock until it has been completely covered in squares.
Using a zig-zag stitch, machine stitch between the squares to give it a quilted look.
Use various Designer Dies from the collection and stickers to create unique
embellishments for the front of the quilt. The 6X6 Paper Pad is perfect for die-cutting
those smaller pieces…saves those 12X12 papers for larger projects!
For the pair of scissors, two pieces were die-cut from the same paper and
then layered together with foam adhesive for a fun 3-D look.
If you’d like a sturdier hanger, add a piece of chipboard to the back.
Next, punch two holes at the top and string a piece of ribbon through for the hanger.
Now it’s ready to great those back-to-school kiddos!
