These Coloring with Paper Mushrooms are perfect for scrapbook pages or cards. I love this technique and see other people on HSN Craft Day doing it with dies now so I guess it is catching on.
The black paper that I cut the outlines from is linked in the materials list.
Cut out the various pieces from paper scraps in your scrap bin. These Coloring with Paper mushrooms look good with anything. Patterned paper also looks good on these mushrooms.
Cut the outline from black cardstock. Do not make the file any smaller than 5 inches across or the black lines get too thin. This makes the mushrooms a good size for cards and scrapbook pages. Cut out the various pieces from paper scraps in your scrap bin. You can combine multiple colors on one mat.
Watch my video on cutting different colors on the same mat.
Assembling the Coloring with Paper Mushrooms
First, stick the outline to the contact paper and re-cover it with the protective backing paper. Make sure to place the outline right side up. If you reverse the outline you will need to reverse the paper and with patterned paper this won’t work.
Start placing the various pieces on the mushrooms with the tweezers.
DO NOT TOUCH THE STICKY SHEET WITH YOUR FINGERS
When all the open spaces are filled, check to make sure all the paper is secure. Press the protective sheet over everything and press sorta hard. Anything that seems loose, glue down with the liquid glue and let dry for at least 30 minutes.
Finally, with scissors cut around the outside leaving as much of the outside black line as you can.
Use these Coloring with Paper Mushrooms as you like. I am working on a fairy to go with it so keep checking back.
