Flowers anyone

July 29, 2011

Here is another project I created for the All White challenge at Late Night Stampers.  This time I decided to make a 3D project.  I have seen the Petal Cone Die used as a vase elsewhere on the net and finally got around to trying it out.

I cut the Petal Cone from Whisper White card and then cut additional panels which I trimmed to be added as a layer.   I ran these cut down panels  through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  Once the box was assembled I used my paper snips to cut a small opening for my flower stems to go through.  I cut the flowers from Whisper White card using the Floral Fusion Sizzlit.  I used my bone folder to curl each flower until I could separate it into two layers.  I scrunched each flower into a tight ball and then opened them.  I used the tiny circle buttons from the Bitty Buttons to create the centre of the flowers.  I used florists wire and folded it in half and threaded it through the buttonholes from the front, then I tied a tiny sliver of Whisper White card through the buttonholes.  Then I added a Mini Glue Dot to the back of the button and started layering the flower petals behind it.  I used a Mini Glue Dot between the layers to make sure they stayed together.  Once again I scrunched the petals around the button and opened them back up.  Once I had made all 5 flowers, I wound the florists wire together and arranged the flowers into a bouquet.

After the flowers were in the “vase” I wrapped some sticky strip around the top of the box and the florists wire and wrapped some Whisper White 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and tied a bow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You might be able to see the buttons and the sliver of Whisper White card in this photo.

I just love this project and I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.
