The one thing I haven’t yet made to date is pretty flowers with the Lady Pattern Paper, and come to think of it, some of the papers in the range are obvious choices to make gorgeous spring blooms with. So today was the day, to make something really pretty. But as usual I put my own fun twist onto the flower as I envisioned something for a Mad Hatters Tea Party… So I used a combination of colours and designs and made this fun flower.
Die cut leaves using your Cuttlebug. I cut two different sized leaves out of different papers.
Mist the die cut leaves using Pearl Bloom Mist.
Insert the leaves one at a time into the bloom tool to shape the leaves.
Let the leaves dry to retain their shapes. You can use a heat gun to speed up the process.
Adhere the flowers together to form your flower.
Add some black flower stamens inside the flower.
Wrap torn pieces of fabric around a recycled lamp shade circle. Adhere some green leaves and the paper flower to the covered metal frame. I used a hot glue gun to adhere the leaves and flower to the metal frame. This will ensure a quick and permanent hold – just be mindful not to burn your fingers.
Use the circle wreath around a vase filled with flowers, around a pretty candle, or hang it one your Christmas tree for a fun twist on the traditional ornaments.
This is a quick and easy project with loads of potential and possibilities.
