Découpage door art
Craft knife at the ready! Recreate the beauty of decorative European doors in paper with our special pull- out 3D project. It makes a wonderful gift when framed for a friend going on new adventures, or keep it for yourself and style it up on your prettiest shelf.
Carefully cut out the three door layers from the pull-out sheet, with layer 1 being the top layer. Using a sharp scalpel, cut any white parts away to reveal the door parts and smaller decorative pieces. Cut out the apertures representing glass windows.
Line up your layers on top of each other as precisely as you can to get a neat 3D effect. Add the finishing touches of the little doorknob, decorative mouldings on the door, and choose a number to stick to the top.
Build up your door, sticking the layers together using a mixture of double-sided tape and foam pads to give a 3D appearance. Using the scalpel, cut out the three layers of plant pots and foliage. Layer with foam pads and attach them to each side of the door.
using the completed door découpage as a guide, cut out a piece of the blue tile patterned paper. Using foam pads, attach the door to the paper background, as shown in the main photograph on the opposite page.
