Paper Flower Embellishment
I tried these paper flowers by using the the spray bottle method to wet cardstock and I love how they look when they dry. After the cardstock dried, I added some Crystal Stickles to give the flower some sparkle. It makes a perfect embellishment on a gift box or package. I added some Prima leaves to complete the flower. I also tried alternating light and dark shades of one color and it really is stunning. For a tutorial on this, go to Dawn's Stampin' Thoughts and check out her video.
I wrapped this gift as a VERY belated thank you to Michele of Island Scrapbooking for helping me cut the invitations for my son's 1st birthday back in November. (Long story). I didn't have a blog back then, so here are some photos of the invitations I made. I made 70 of them and they were WAY more labor intensive then I anticipated. But they got done and I'm grateful for Michele's generosity in helping me cut a lot of the pieces with her laser machine.
