Recycled Tape Roll Decoration

Hanging Decoration
        Hi friends sharing a romantic hanging decoration with hearts and roses and frilly bows ! Went with  a color scheme of turquoise blue, lime green and coral red bordering on pink in places!
        Recycling gives me a big kick and for this project I recycled an used up adhesive tape roll to make the top most part of the 3 tiered valentine decoration [ which I wanted to be sturdy and dimensional].
Tape Roll recycling
          Made a hole on the tape roll using a crop a dile and inserted an eyelet to strengthen the hole. Threaded a pearl string through the eyelet and lined the tape roll with a golden organza ribbon .
Tape Roll recycling
Hot glued a ribbon inside it and sealed the  tape roll with embossed scalloped  circles on the front and back.
3 D decoupaged Stamped Rose
          I stamped and heat embossed in gold 5 roses from the Winnie and Walter In Bloom Elsa's Flora Clear Stamp Set .Water-colored each stamped flower and cut them up in pyramage fashion to make the 3 D rose.Here is the tutorial to make a 3 D Stamped Rose : 3 D Decoupage tutorial 
3 D stamped Rose
Mounted the rose on an aqua water-colored card stock embossed with a woven folder.The edges of the circle were dipped in versamark and heat embossed gold. It was a lot of work but I do love the 3 D look !
Heart Decoration
          The 2nd element of my hanging ornament has  a staggering 6 layers of hearts [ made using Nellie Snellen and Spellbinders dies ]popped on foam tape to create sturdiness and dimension!
Valentine Decoration
         The lime green hearts were cut from parchment paper and the edges dusted with distress glitter for a subtle shimmer.My cupid rests on a bed of dozens of punched flowers!
Valentine Decoration
        For the 3rd and last element I went all romantic with 6 layers of hearts glamorized with golden arrows and wings. The  jeweled heart  in 2 layers was heat embossed in gold, water-colored a coral red  and crowned with a resin crown!
Heart Hanging Decoration
The beautiful green pendant hanging from the hearts is from a broken earring ! [ recycling favorite pieces of broken jewelry gives me such a high!]
Valentine Decoration
       Making this elaborate decoration was a labour of love indeed but totally worth it as it was made for my hubby and daughter!
We all have used up tape rolls we throw away/ hoard and I hope you like my recycling idea !
