Doorhanger ~ Art Philosophy

I told you I was going to be focused on this cartridge for a while! Lots of fun stuff in this one.

This project is the Doorhanger “box”. I’m not exactly what I’m going to use this for, but I thought I’d make one and get more familiar with the AP cartridge.

I cut the doorhanger with “Fit To Page” to get it as large as possible. I used the stamps that came with the AP bundle. I am not a big stamper, but I have been enjoying using the stamps that came in the bundle. The flowers take some practice. I seem to end up with a blob of hot glue in the center of the flower, so I just squirt some Stickles in there to cover up the dried hot glue and give the flower a nice sparkly center!

I should’ve used the heaviest cardstock that I could find, but instead I opted for a pretty double-sided cardstock that’s not extremely heavy. I think for this “box” to be really functional you’d want it on really heavy weight cardstock.


All cuts on this project are from the Art Philosophy cartridge, and all stamps used are from Close To My Heart (the Art Philosophy bundle). The small flower above the sentiment is 4 layers. I adhered the bottom layer to the next layer, then the next cream layer and then the top layer. I curled up the edges of the cream layer before I attached the top layer.


I curled the edges of this flower around the stylus for my Gypsy, which gives the flower a more opened look. I hope you enjoyed this project! Be sure to check back on Monday for a beautiful card that I created using Art Philosophy and my Gypsy!

Thanks, Carolyn! I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but it sure is pretty!
