How to Make Intricut Toucan Wall Art

Difficulty Beginner
Budget £10 - £30

Heat embossing is a technique that's been around for a little while now, however we never tire of using it on our projects. It's a great way of adding a glossy, shiny finish in a flash, and can be done on all manner of materials including paper, wood and even vellum! When heating the powder, make sure to do so on a glass mat to protect your work surface as the tool and can get very hot; using the mat will help to avoid any scorched surfaces!

How to make

Step 1

Using the cheese plant leaf die from the Intricut set, cut a selection of leaves from different shades of green cardstock. To add a different texture to some of the leaves, clear heat emboss some of the leaves. 

Step 2

Trim a sheet of white cardstock to 16.5cm square and start to position the leaves. Once happy with the layout secure in place with a glue pen, adding height to some with foam pads. 

Step 3

Die cut the toucan from black cardstock. Remove the cut negative sections from the design, then secure the top two thirds of the toucan to a sheet of white card, trim away the excess card with a pair of sharp scissors.

Step 4

Cut the neck, beak and eye section from orange, blue and white card. Paper-piece the remaining sections of the toucan design using a glue pen to secure the pieces in place.

Step 5

Hand-cut a brown branch and position on top of the cheese plant leaves (roughly 4.5cm up the right-hand side) add the toucan on top, stacking foam pads so that he stands off from the leaves.

Step 6

To complete, add a selection of die-cut flowers with gems used to create the centre of the flower. Secure to the background sticking some with foam pads.
