You can see the  Soccer ball diecuts in the  picture above . The  size of the  diecuts is large enough to make a ball party decoration ,Party prop,a box, a shaped card or  a functional and unique handmade Penstand like the  one you see here.


DIY Soccer Ball Penstand Tutorial 

It is pretty simple to make the  Penstand. You need just a minimum of 2 Soccer ball diecuts and a strip of thick cardstock to make the  wall. For aethestic and functional strength you can add 2 extra black circles to form the  basic framework as shown in the  picture below.

The curved wall is made using a strip of card stock with wedges cut on the  sides to enable you to easily stick the  strip in a curved fashion to the  circular sides of your Ball Penstand. Vary the  length of the  strip according to how big you want the  opening of the  penstand to be.

Once you stick the cardstock strip to the black base circles, add the  Soccer ball design diecuts.

If you want to create a partitioned Penstand , add chipboard pieces as shown below inside the  Ball.

You can add a base to the  Ball Penstand to help make it more sturdy.
The base is made using the  same dies using cardstock and 2 layers of black craft foam.

Foamiran Flowers
Hi friends sharing an altered project with lots of handmade foam flowers made exclusively with Crealies  dies . This was originally a plastic photo frame we were gifted but I wanted to alter it and make it more cheerful and lively.

The flowers are simple easy to make ones and I really love the  new foliage dies from Crealies  ...they are so delicate and were perfect for this particular project.

I didnt use the  iron to shape the  foam while making the  flowers as I wanted to make a bunch of flowers quickly but I did jazz them up with a sprinkling of glitter!

I used pretty papers from Lemoncraft inside the  photo-frame. The white corner design on the  frames were made with new Crealies  dies and though delicate and intricate they cut beautifully !
