Today the girls' & I did some crafting before we retreated to the 74 degree temps & full sun that was calling to us outside.
While waiting for them to wake up this morning I spent some time getting caught up on my blog reading. Seems I never have enough time to do that lately. It was wonderful. My brain is swirling with many ideas - but this one caught my attention because it came complete with a video! I found this on Scrap Tiffany Blog . The original idea is for mini flowers to use on cards & layouts, but at the end Sheri show this example. A much larger one!
So the 3 of us set off to the creative corner & started digging through my drawer of scraps! We used the largest scalloped circle I had, about 4", from my Nestabilities & ran them through the Cuttlebug.
I cut the back circle out of chipboard using my large circle cutter from Coluzzle. I cut an identical size from a patterned paper. After we had the whole flower assembled we glued the patterned paper circle over the chipboard circle on the back. Then we punched 2 holes to thread the coordinating ribbon through so that we can hang them in a window or on the door or on the wall!
Too - too cute!
