My first Crafters Companion DT make - 3D Hot Air Balloon

I wanted to share with you the first thing I have made as part of the Crafters Companion Die'sire Design Team. This has been made using the Hot Air Balloon template and was just so easy to assemble and I love the 3D element.

I used A3 card from the Timeless pack which folded beautifully into place. I will post a full list of what I used at the bottom of this post but here are a few photo's:

I had purchased the full set of Textures embossing folders last year and I have been using them so much lately. For this project  I used the Basket Weave embossing folder for the basket and used a little Gilding Wax to highlight it:

List of things used:
Hot Air Balloon template
Timeless A3 card
Textures embossing folder - Basket weave
Tim Holtz Distress Collection card (for flowers / leaves)
Ribbon and gems from stash
Red tape
Collall glue

I really do love this and I am already making my next one in pink for a friend who is expecting a baby girl. The basket is perfect  to hold a small gift. I will show you the finished project in a few weeks but I have put an eyelet at the top and threaded ribbon through so that it can be hung up in the nursery.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you all have a lovely weekend x
