Welcome to my stop on the Falling for Handmade Paper blog hop! Arnold Grummer’s Papermaking and Club Scrap have combined creative forces and are celebrating Fall together in a very exciting blog hop full of lovely treasures and surprises!Today we have a dozen talented bloggers sharing projects featuring handmade paper paired with Club Scrap's Falling Leaves collection.

For my blog hop project, I made a beautiful explosion box. The design is by art friend Zahraa Darwish but the details are all me and the ingenuity of Club Scrap. To make it, you’ll need the following:

From Club Scrap

Falling Leaves Page Kit
Falling Leaves Stamps

From Arnold Grummer’s Papermaking

Garden Press
Pre-shredded White Cotton Linter
Angel wings (Multi-color Mix)
Brilliants for Paper
Iridescent Flakes

Other Materials

Sponge
Pan
Towels
Ranger Liquid pearls (Brass and Rose Gold)

STEP ONE

  • Dry your flowers and leaves using the Garden Press. This will take several days so be sure to prepare in advance. Of course, the result is spectacular!

  • Using the Cotton Linter, tissue paper in your choice of color, Angel Wings, and the Brilliants for paper, create pulp.

  • Create paper castings of the full leaves on the Falling Leaves stamp.

  • Optional: Create your own paper using the papermaking kit.

STEP TWO

  • Create the base and top of the box.

  • Design the inner pop-up elements.

  • Add all elements to complete the box.

  • Touch up the box with Liquid Pearl and markers.

STEP THREE

  • Print and cut out photos the size of the openings in the pop-up elements.

  • Adhere them to the proper areas.
