Saturday Project

I made this little project based on the dimensions from Splitcoaststampers resources page Here. 

It will hold the 4 note cards we made in my February stamp class?  

Didn't attend?... 
There.. there... Smiley from well here's what you missed.

 Each one is made using a different watercolor technique.  All are stamped with Black Stazon ink on watercolor paper.

I think we all learned something new that day!

Here is a small tutorial for how to make the flower on the front of the box.

 Start by punching out strips from the Lace Ribbon Border punch and cut apart the individual 'flowers'  You will need at least 8 or 9 flowers.
I crumpled them up and then opened them back up again.

Punch a 1 inch circle from the same color as your flower.

Add some Tombow liquid glue to the entire surface of the 1 inch circle.

Start adding your 'petals' around in a circle overlapping each one over the top of the last. Smiley from

When you add the fifth petal, lift up the first petal that you added and tuck the fifth one under so they are all overlapping each other.  Clear as mud? Smiley from

Next layer... repeat same as the first layer but you will only need 3 petals.

Punch a hole using the Paper-Piercing Tool ... lovingly called THE POKEY at my stamp classes!

Add the last petal to an Antique brad before inserting into the flower.

Reshape your petals by squishing them up around the brad.

Adhere it to your project using dimensionals.  I love those thingys!


SHOP 24/7!

Stop in again and stamp with me!
