Jonathan Fong is an interior, floral and crafts designer who turns DIY into D-I-Wow. He hosts the web series Style with a Smile TV as well as DisneyFamily.com’s “He Made She Made.” He is a design expert and contributor for Disney’s Spoonful.com site and eHow. He is also a designer and spokesperson for Craft Attitude, and the author of three books: Walls that Wow, Flowers that Wow, and Parties that Wow. Before Jonathan joined the crafting community, spurred by his addiction to his Sizzix Big Shot, he was an ad man, creating commercials for Acura, Jenny Craig, Boston Market, and Jergens Lotion.
Here are the materials you’ll need so you can start getting ready for the class (UPDATED):
Project: Paris Flea Market Party
Items to purchase:
One 2”x3” mini stretched canvas (or similarly small size) and mini easel (available at most art supply and crafts stores)
Craft Attitude Adhesive Film (listed on Amazon as Scrapbooking Attitude) - you'll need three sheets (available at Amazon.com)
Items you probably have around the house:
One wooden clothespin
One small brown paper bag (i.e. lunch bag or goodie bag: the smaller paper sacks from Michael's work well.)
One price tag from an article of clothing (the kind with a hole at the end)
One old hardbound book with a plain cover (i.e., with the dust jacket removed)
White duct tape
One clear white wine bottle with label removed (a large soda bottle like the ones at Trader Joe’s is also suitable).
(For all the materials above, lighter colors work best. For example, a black price tag will not work with Craft Attitude because artwork will not show through.)
Other Supplies needed:
Spray adhesive (if you are working in a well-ventilated space; otherwise use the glue stick)
Optional materials to finish the look:
Embellishments like buttons, scrapbook papers, trim, etc.
