papertrey ink stamp-a-faire 2017: 7th anniversary tradition - wool


Hi everyone! I am so happy to be joining you today for Papertrey Ink’s Stamp-a-Faire event. I have a project to share that uses the traditional 7th anniversary gift of wool. The project features a layered wool felt technique that adds a great detail to wool embellishments. You will love how easy it is to do and how it leaves people wondering how you did it!


Watch the video tutorial below to learn how to create the leaves in my project using a layered wool felt technique:


Here are the step by step instructions for this project:

  1. Die cut leaves from wool felt, making sure you have two leaves in contrasting colors for each leaf embellishment.
  2. Layer the leaves on top of each other and use a sewing machine to sew the vein details on the leaves using a very small stitch length. Trim off all excess thread ends.
  3. Hold the stitched leaf with the color you want as the vein detail facing up. Use sharp scissors and slip them between the felt layers to cut away the top layer of felt in between the stitching lines.
  4. On the right side of a circle die cut from white cardstock, stamp the berry image in Cocoa Bean, Canyon Clay, and Terracotta Tile inks. Stamp the sentiment to the left of the berry branch in Cocoa Bean ink.
  5. Attach the leaves onto the circle piece so that they are attached to the stamped berry image.
  6. Attach the circle piece to a card base die cut from kraft cardstock using the Noted: Scalloped Square die.
  7. Adhere clear confetti around the circle piece on the card front.
