As you can tell, I long for spring - which officially begins this Saturday...YAY!
When I saw the oh-so-delicious colors posted at the Play Date Cafe yesterday, I was super excited! I've been wanting to make some of these eyelet punch flowers since I saw them on someone's blog (was it yours? I know I left you a comment about them - thanks so much for turning me on to them!) and I fell in love! Just PERFECT for this challenge! I googled & found this awesome tutorial by Julie Davison. Unbelievably, I found my paper crimper & these flowers were easy as pie!
I used Kazan's sketch, from 2 Sketches 4 You. I made the yellow "brackets" by die cutting (nesties Label 1) both the solid yellow & the patterend yellow papers. I cut the solid yellow in half & glued it to the back of the patterned paper, letting it form a border on each side, & then I snipped off the points sticking out of the top & bottom. The center buttons were made by adhering a pink pearl brad to the top of each.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
