Cherry Wood Bough Wreath

We love to make cherished holiday decor that we can display year after year. This Cherry Wood wreath was a little labor intensive, but creating it was a labor of love. We created this wreath using Cherry Wood paper and the Take a Bough Die from Concord & 9th. We had so many little boughs left over that we created a couple of fun cards. Below are tips on creating this wreath.

Cherry Wood Boughs Wreath
1. Die-cut 100 boughs in Cherry Wood paper in 3 various lengths using a manual die cutter and the Take a Bough dies.
2. Hot glue boughs on cardboard wreath base starting with the largest boughs first.
3. Hot glue another ring of boughs using the medium bough.
4. Hot glue another ring of boughs using the smallest bough.
5. Fill in any holes or thin spots with additional boughs.
6. Hot glue 3 tiny pinecones in the bottom center of wreath.
7. Tie red yarn bow and glue next to pinecones.

AWESOME Cherry Wood Graduation Card

Handmade cards do not have to be super complicated or embellished. Today we are sharing a graphic and simple card featuring our Real Cherry Wood paper.

Our Real Wood papers have an adhesive backing making it easy to adhere to any surface. We cut the Cherry Wood paper with the AWESOME die from Studio Calico using a Big Shot. Once cut, we removed the adhesive liner from the backside of the Cherry Wood paper and adhered the design to a card front. We will pair this card with our A2 Real Cherry Wood Envelopes.

We have a few high school graduations to attend and need to make multiple cards. This is a simple card design to make multiples of and it is sure to make an impression with our awesome graduates.

National Stationery Show 2016 – Recap

We had a great trip to New York City for this year’s National Stationery Show. We made new friends and reconnected with many of you. It was great to see everyone. If you were exhibiting, we hope you had a wonder show!

We walked to show floor each day and were super excited to see wood paper used on so many cool products and in various ways. Below is a small sampling of the cool wood stationery products found. Thank you to JRC Industries for showcasing our Wood envelopes! Until next year.

Easter Wishes on Wood paper

Happy Easter!

We created these simple, vintage style greeting cards using Birch Wood paper and pastel card stock. This is a super easy DIY that looks professional. We designed the card front easily with vintage clip art found online and then added an Easter message. You can print your own custom design on Wood paper using most home inkjet printers.

We created a few different color versions of this card on pastel card stock. We even added a touch of color to one of the bunny images using a red Chameleon pen in the lightest shade—coloring directly onto the wood paper.

Supplies for Easter Wishes Bunny cards: 8.5″ x 11″ Birch Wood adhesive backed paper, 8.5″ x 11″ Cherry Wood adhesive backed paper, A2 Birch Wood Envelopes, A2 Cherry Wood Envelopes, 4 sheets of pastel card stock (pink, blue, yellow, purple) and Chameleon primary tone pens (optional). Supplies will create 8 cards.

Instructions for Easter Wishes Bunny Cards:

1. Find your desired black and white clip art image. Download image and open in your favorite design program. Add a custom greeting.

2. Set up 4 images of your card front onto an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet.

3. Print design onto a sheet of adhesive backed Cherry and Birch Wood paper.

4. Cut the printed 8.5″ x 11″ sheet in half, and in half again, to create four card fronts that are 4.25″ x 5.5″. Center and trim each image again to 4″ x 5.25″.

5. Cut pastel card bases to 5.5″ x 8.5″. Score and fold in half.

6. Remove adhesive liner from the printed wood paper. Center the wood paper and adhere to the front of the pastel card stock.

7. Optional: color in a bunny image with a red Chameleon pen following the pen instructions to achieve the lightest shade.

8. Pair each card with a matching Birch or Cherry wood envelope.
