Fixated on Flowers!
I must be longing for spring or something because today all I want to do is make flowers. And if you are of a like mind, I suggest you go to You Tube and enter "making paper flowers." You will get enough videos to keep you entertained for days! These beauties are made from scraps of designer paper using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and the Sizzix 3D paper die for the centers. You need something like an awl, a toothpick, or a quilling tool to curl the edges, some glue to put them together and then as a final step I spritzed them with Perfect Pearls Mist. I used Sunflower Sparkle on all 3. I love this stuff. I never got into Glimmer Mist in a big way but I am making up for it now. BTW, all it took was one spritz per flower to get the glimmer. Click on the picture to see up close. I think these are stunning....if I do say so myself! Give it a try!
