Paper Pavillion

Hello crafty reader!  I can't believe it's August... how time flies!

I have to say I had a hard time giving a name to my latest project.  But it is decorative, something you can put on a desk.  I wanted to make anything but a card, you see.  And I ended up with this:

Basically I played with pieces cut with Spellbinders dies.  The hanging ball in the middle was made using my Paper Cake Technique.  I love the summer colors of the cardstock from the Cruise Voyage Collection by Gartner Studios.  I didn't want to overdo it, so I just chose red white and blue buttons for embellishments.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Gartner Studios
image/sentiment:  Verve
ink:  Tsukineko, Stampin' Up
tools:  Spellbinders, Creative Memories circle punch, paper piercing template
embellishments:  buttons
misc.:  yarn
adhesive:  Scotch, Zots, mounting tape
