While the weather outside has been rather warm these last few days, winter is still here and I am looking forward to hot chocolates, building snowmen and bundling up in warm knits. I am trying to start inexpensively decorating my house each season, and so I did this papercraft sampler to hang in a frame in my entranceway.
The squares are mounted on white cardstock at 12"x12", then the silver is 11"x11"and the navy cardstock is 10.5"x10.5". Each square is 2.5x2.5", with the inner squares at 2.25" x 2.25".
I had a lot of fun coming up with different designs and items for each square. Some of them are very traditional, such as the snowman, snowflakes and winter hat.
Other squares such as the hearts were tied into the winter theme by keeping the same colour scheme throughout the sampler.
I especially love my little penguin square!
I also wanted a few snowflake and glitter elements, as well as dimension with layered stickers and foam squares. The squares are a mixture of stickers, punches and stamps that I had in my supplies.
If you would like instructions on any particular square, please feel free to ask!
