This little project for Graphic 45 was so fun and easy to put together. I have a few of my trade secrets revealed in this post too! The lovely Botanical Tea paper line made for a perfect pairing on this whimsical hanging that is now adorning one of my antique floor lamps.

White Gilders Paste
In order to make my chipboard pieces more substantial I added eyelets and covered the edges in white gilders paste. While you cannot see it in this shot, I also covered the backs of the chipboard with coordinating paper, in case they we seen.
Sometimes it is a challenge to cut your paper into an odd shape. I often find that my edges are just a little bit wonky, so I have to disguise it. In this Botanical Tea Hanging, I did just that. The oval of paper I used to back my hummingbird sticker was not cut perfectly people, but thanks to my clever use of stickels you can hardly tell. I simply covered my errors up with this handy glitter glue.
