Fun Flowers

Hey there Stampers!

I have a quick and fun project to share.  I can tell already that I'll be making a LOT of these!

This is my new "Fun Flowers Bookmark"....


I'll be posting a quick tutorial on making them soon.  I finally have my video set up back together so I can actually "show" how to make them.  Woot!

It's made with just a few scraps of Designer Series Paper...a couple little scraps of cardstock...a piece of riboon and a button.  Voila!

The corner is just a folded piece of card stock covered with DSP.  It's attached with a piece of SU's Crocheted Trim Ribbon to a gorgeous flower.  The flower is made from 4 layers of "Everyday Enchantment" Designer Series Paper that have been cut with the Fun Flowers Die for the Big Shot.
Once I cut them out, I spritzed each one with a "magic" solution.  Ok....ok....not really.....   I spritzed them with none other than our Stampin' Mist!!  That's right!  It's the stamp cleaner!  Woot!  You spritz them enough so that they are damp.  Then you will crumple each one up and then unfold them again.  I then stacked them together while they were still damp and adhered them together.  Next, I used my Heat Gun to "blow dry" them and they start to take shape and stay just where I want them.  It's awesome.  I added a little circle of card stock in the middle under a sweet button with a piece of linen thread though it just for good measure and....DONE!  My mind is already racing with ideas for more of these sweet little gifts.  I can't wait.

So....if you are a reader or maybe a member of a BOOK CLUB these would be just the ticket for you.   Check out my Stampin' Up! Online Store for supplies and more great project ideas.

Stamped Blessings to you,

  2. Yay! I'm so glad you like them. It would be fun to do them in different "themes" for the seasons, holidays, etc. My mind is racing with ideas! :-)
