I’m thrilled to share two projects using S5-060 Flower Pots and S4-352 Spiral Blossom Two with you...
Once I sanded them then I was ready to wind them and turn them into flowers. I wanted the pink flower to be the largest in the bunch so I kept the center opened wider as I wound it around adding a little Zip Dry paper glue as I kept winding.
Next I wound the teal colored flower. I kept the center a little tighter to keep this flower smaller than the pink flower. Again, I used Zip Dry by Beacon Adhesives to hold the flower as it was rolled.
The orange flower was created differently. I cut up several lengths, rolled them and glued them. I nested them together, added more glue to the round center and created a tight looking flower.
Here’s what the flowers looked like all glued together and before I added their different centers to them. Pretty fun huh?
Next I cut/embossed the leaves from the Rose Creations set making three of the largest leaves and two of the middle sized one. I love sanding the paper so the embossing stands out and gives the shapes a little more detail. Once I cut/embossed and sanded then I glued the bottom round tips of just the very ends of each leaf together. This adds dimension and makes them stand up a little on the page.
Next I cut/embossed the S5-060 Flower Pots, which I used for the flowers and the banners.
To create the flower pot I cut the top off from notch to notch then sanded this piece and the bottom part. I adhered this to the top of the pot using pop dots to add dimension.
Next I sanded each of the smaller flower pots. To make them into a banner I punched small holes and threaded them onto baker’s twine. I tied a bow at both ends.
--Using the background paper from KaiserCraft’s Timeless collection “Newsprint” I inked the edges with Colorbox Chestnut Roan ink to age it a bit then added a zig-zag machine stitched border around the edge.
--Next I adhered the Grand Labels Four piece I cut/embossed, sanded and inked using Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker Summer “Lemonade” paper.
--After mounting my sweet 5” x 7” Chloe photo onto plain white cardstock I added some inking to the edges of the cardstock and a machine stitched border right onto the photo then adhered it to the layout across the Grand Label Four piece.
--Next I adhered the banner I created using pop dots for dimension up in the left hand corner of the layout like pictured.
--Then using the multi-colored ribbon from Hobby Lobby I tied a bow around the top of the flower pot then glued this down on the layout as shown.
--Next it was time to glue down my flowers then add the Want To Scrap self-adhesive pink pearls to the center of the pink flower, the yellow Buttons Galore button to the teal flower center, and the large Bo Bunny bling to the center of the orange flower.
--Next I positioned the leaves where I wanted then glued them down as well.
--I mounted the little photo on white cardstock like I did the large photo then inked it before adhering it using pop-dots like pictured.
--Last thing I did was added the title work using Thickers from American Crafts and cardstock stickers by Bo Bunny.
