Flower Tutorial - Layering

blogged by me domestic goddess On 1/22/2010 01:20:00 PM
I thought it would be fun to have a look at our stash; of which we all have lots of!, and turn the scraps of paper, odd buttons and the mix of flowers sitting in a jar , and turn them into a new embellishment.

Go grab : Punches ie : circle, scallop small, paper scraps any weight, buttons and mulberry flowers in co-ordinating colours, twine, and if you have some bits of lightweight chipboard go get them too.

Lets punch a scallop and a circle in different pattern papers; I am using MME papers

Now rough up the edge of the circle with the edge of your scissor.

Scrunch the paper circle and scallop like we did in flower tutorial part 1

Grab a button and thread and tie the twine through the button.

Using glue dots, stick your button to the mulberry flower.

Pop the circle onto your scallop

Now using a glue dot or adhesive of your choice stick the 2 components together

Viola! How easy is that, and you have a new embellie to use on cards and scrapbook pages. I have added chipboard to the bottom layer for added dimension, and also just used a circle for a smaller embellishment.

Do share your creations, just post a comment below leaving a link.
Finally, here is a sneak peak of a layout I will be teaching at my crop this weekend. I am using Kaisercraft Christmas range.

Hope you are all having a great Friday
Hugs and thanks for stopping by

PS: thanks for your comments re day 15 365 photo, it has really given me some food for thought!
