Design Team: KimberlyRae Forde Week 3 Term 3

KimberlyRae Forde: Spring Wagon

Spring is in full bloom! See how you can give the gift of a garden to a friend, with KimberlyRae's adorable Spring Wagon!
Oh Yes!  Spring has Sprung, in our neck-of-the-woods!  How about in yours?
Now the fun begins!   All winter long, our five girls [hens] have been fertilizing our garden, naturally and now we are ready to plant.
Along with our veggie garden, we plant tons of one of my Favorite summer flowers the Gerber Daisy!  Last year I saved my orange, salmon, yellow and pink seeds.  And this year, I've packed some of them into this gift set for a special someone.

Instructions

Cut all pieces from SVGcuts and MTME cut files with your Craftwell eCraft.  I cut an extra wheel barrow handle section out.

Use these settings for the Larger pieces:

4 pressure
no CCS
no tabs
Use these settings for the Smaller pieces:
4 pressure
CSS
no tabs

1. Assemble the wheel sections by adhering the handle bars one on top of the other for stability.   Fold tabs over and set aside.

2. Then, assemble the wheel pieces.  I crumpled the inside sections for a lil more dimension and added buttons.  The pattern calls for brads but I hot glued the wheels.  Also, I used my Xyron [love this thing]!  to adhere the inside wheels as if they were stickers, as well as all the panels around the wheel barrow and SVGcuts Crafty signature stamp to the back of the wheel barrow.  I also, drew stitches with a white gel pen.

3. Glue up all the edges of the wheel barrow's body section.

4. Glue on the wheel sections you assembled earlier.

 Create Petals

5. Spray all cut out Flowers on both sides. Let Dry.

6. Roll flowers and glue to the round base.  Shape and form as desired.  One daisy flower completed!  Repeat with yellow and blue sprays.

Seed Packets

7.  Alter by breaking apart in SCAL3 software and omitting the large section of the MTME Seed Packet file and Place the SVGcuts Seeds file  Score each packet and glue in cellophane on the backside where you can see through the flowers and text.

8. Use the Die-namics smallest button die  to make the button enclosure on the seed packets and close with pink burlap twine.

9. Place 'real' Gerber Daisy Seeds into a snack size baggie and staple to one of the Bo Bunny Cards that come in the kit!

Glove Tag

10. Alter and Weld the Glove from SVGcuts SVG file and cut.  Using Crop-a-dile set eyelet and tie twine and ribbon through.

You’re Done and have a Wheel Barrow full of lil crafty goodies to give for a swap or for anyhow.
