A Flower Pot covered with Faux Leather Paper decorated with Christmas Designs
Faux leather paper (with gold on one side) is cut out and sewn together to make bags. Designs of angels and Christmas trees are cut out and glued on.
How to do itAttached file: Download
Small bag (finished measurements 13x11 cm): cut a piece measuring 37x17 cm. The base is a 12 cm diameter circle. Large bag (finished measurements 20x20 cm): cut a piece measuring 65x28 cm. The base is a 19 cm diameter circle. Moisten the paper in water and scrunch it up for a rustic look.
Sew the cut-out pieces together to make two tubes measuring 17 cm and 28 cm.
Attach the base with pegs and sew it on. Now turn the bag inside out, so that the gold side is on the outside.
Cut out the figures from the template which is available as a separate PDF file for this idea (we will be using the paper side so be careful with pencil lines as these are not easily rubbed out).
Apply glue onto the gold side. Distribute the glue over the entire surface.
Glue the figure onto the bag and attach masking tape, making sure that the entire figure is connected to the bag whilst drying.
