Sunflower Niche

"You spread a little sunshine wherever you go" makes me think about my four-year-old granddaughter. She has light blond hair and a beautiful smile. I made this project for her.

This project uses the Gypsy Soul Laser "Sunflower Niche".

Adorable niche perfect for decorating.  Front measures 6 inches by 6.25 inches.  Niche measures 2 inches by 3 inches by .5 inch deep. Includes wall hanger. 

I used Memento "Cottage Ivy" ink and intended to color the pieces to a solid green, but when I put the first bit of ink on, it brought out the texture of the chipboard which I quite liked, so I didn't add any more.

This is the back when the two pieces are glued together.

My favorite type of paper crafting is "iris folding". Small pieces of paper are adhered to the back of  a pattern and are generally used for cards, but can also be used in mini albums or picture frames. I cut one to fit into the niche.

This is a closer look:

This was a simple and fun project, and I know my granddaughter is going to love it!

  1. I love the patina, my partner's favorite color combinations are green and yellow so he would love this too.
