Tim's Kraft Glassine Paper Flowers


Oh, the possibilities of the Tim's new Kraft Glassine Paper!!! And Tim's new Crowded Attic Paper Stash need little or no alteration here!!!!! I LOVE this new line, soooo up my alley! The Journeyman Tissue Tape goes hand-in-hand with the vintage papers added to the container.



The flowers are cut from the Kraft Glassine paper with the Tattered Florals Die. Stamped with Archival Inks in Coffee, Jet Black, and Olive, they have a translucent quality that is really amazing. I crumpled the papers and added a simple brad for the centers.

The container is a wooden tube that is painted with Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Paint in Charcoal Black and the top is just a wooden accent screwed into it. The base is a wooden plaque. I use the Aged Mahogany Crackle paint on parts and added Black Soot Distress Ink over the top.


The Tissue Tape has Hazelnut and Sandal Alcohol Ink added for a bit of color. I glued everything on with Matte Multi-Medium, and sealed with a 2nd coat when dry. This really makes it nicely permanent over the Tissue Tape, too.


Add a piece of trim around the lid and whatever other embellishments you want. I was going for Simple here, which is pretty much against my grain, but I thought it would make a great gift, or container for a gift, for a man.


My maiden name was Holtzer, hence my nickname from Jr High is Holtz (funny, heh?) The internet says the name from German ancestry means "worker of wood". I LOVE working with wood and paper, perhaps it's in my bloodline. We've been dabbling in the Ancestry.com lately, my son and I. Found lots of REALLY interesting stuff from clear back to the 1400's. Another addiction, for sure.


Enjoy, and like I said before....start saving your pennies and pounds, because this is Tim's finest, in my opinion!
