Paper Berry Topiary

I finally finished my fall project, lol! I started this in September as a decoration for Christmas. Honestly where does the time go? ;-)

This started as a brainstorm after looking at the prices on things at the local home decor shop. I thought wouldn't these been COOLER made out of paper (not to mention cheaper, too)?

To make the berries, spray a 2" square of Cranberry cardstock with My Acrylix Spritz stamp cleaner. This will give your paper an extra 'crisp' hold that water won't. Now crumple the square into a ball and let dry.

The berries are adhered to the foam mold with Liquid Glass. I covered the stick with brown b&t from Passages and shredded and curled the same paper for the 'moss'.

Voila! That's it! Now I didn't have quite the overall look I wanted with mine so I sponged some Cranberry ink over the finished project to POP the color.

I'm thinking it's going to look pretty good on the mantle for Valentine's Day, too! *Smile*

Warm winter wishes,
