Instructions: View a larger project image here. I created this projects by using the circle scrap die cuts that were left creating the Tunnel Album, I shared last week. If you missed checking it, you can check it out HERE. Choose pattern paper from the Monkeying around collection for the back and front of all the circle cut outs. Stick them on the front side and keep the ones cut for back aside for later use. Also, choose the pattern paper to create circular pockets using Fleur Border Die. Paste a white decorative edge on the inside of each circular panel. Create few tags and photo mats from the same paper collection. All the panels are attached from the back using twine with the help of hot glue. In between all the panels, a small foldable joint is created by pasting two embossed coconuts and few embossed bananas back to back keeping the twine in the center and gluing using hot glue. To make it look fancier, I added beads in between. Cover the backs of all panels with designer paper. On the top panel make a loop and attach it to the back of the panel. On the smallest panel attach a hanging created using flower, beads, embossed bananas and coconuts. I kept the project all without glitter and tried giving it a raw look.

For embellishing stamp multiple images of a palm tree with Library Green archival ink and color it using Fern Green and Olive Green. Coconuts have been stamped with Coffee brown archival and colored using vintage photo. Bananas are stamped using Coffee Archival and painted using Sunflower Archival ink. Coconuts and Bananas are softly embossed using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Stamp multiple flowers from Wildwood Floral Stamp set with Plum and paint them using Tea rose archival. Shape the flowers using deluxe flower shaping kit. Cut a few images from Designer paper using their coordinating dies to make extra embellishments. Stamp few images of hanging monkeys and paint them using Zig Clear Brush Markers. Once all the embellishments are ready, assemble the door hanging creating a monkeying around scene on all the panels.
