Like an old vine bottle cover tutorial

I made this vine bottle cover once about 8 weeks ago for Cheery Lynn designs Dimensional Leaves sets release- but it was a the common post. Since then I got a lot of comments in my own blog asking for a tutorial- and as the original project was sent to CHA show and is not coming back- I decided to make another similar, but not the same one, and this time with a full tutorial .
This is mostly about recycling and die cutting very easy project, and the only thing that takes time here is this glitter glue drying time..LOL
But you need those fantastic CLD dies to make it - that's for sure..


So here we begin:
1. Use the acetate box for your recycling, cut the upper and lower lids with simple scissors.
2.Gather your supplies:a piece of a double sided paper - I used Bo Bunny, your dies from Cheery Lynn Designs , some stong paper glue and strong glue dots- I used Glue Arts  that I love and have, some distress inks from Ranger and some glitter Ranger glue.
Cut the  rectangle about 4.5*6'' size from the patterned paper and then die cut the rectagle about 1/8'' less from both sides with your Cheery Lynn Designs XL Scalloped Coved Rectangle die from the set- I used the 4 1/8*5 3/4'' size here.
Cut another rectangle about   2*3.5'' size and then die cut with the same die set again, using your
    1 and  7/8*3.5'' size die from the set


3.Now adhere the die cut pieces over the rectangles , round the rectangles corners if you wish before.


4. Use the clear adhesive squares to adhere the both glued labels over the acetate box as shown


5. Die cut  and emboss lots and lots of dimentional leaves from both sets  of small  dimensional leaves  from Cheery Lynn Designs Dimensional small leaves #1 and #2  leaves dies - use the same green paper and another green papers leftovers, emboss the leaves with the same die using your embossing pads.
Ink the leaves with distress inks , crimple them a bit and adhere over the cover on the right side, using lots of clear adhesive squares.

6. As a last step make some grapes using your glitter glues and some wire swirls and glue the swirls over a finished project.
Die cut a bubble label using your Cheery Lynn Designs Bubble expression # 3-sorry , but the link to this item in a shop is broken. 
Add some pearls on the corners- if you like them..
Glue those two step die cuts one over another, add some letter sentiment over the small coved and a bubble label-as shown , adhere the bubble spot  to your project and enjoy it!

Want to do this project? Just go to Cheery Lynn shop to grab some dies I used here and you can craft  it in no time.
And as the Dimensional Leaves were on the table- I did this new card using some of them



So if you like this tutorial iwant to try your own project- just jump to Cheery Lynn Designs shop and buy some of those great dies for the project. By the way- new spring releases are in the shop and they are gorgeous!!
