So many of you that live QUITE south of me are already sleeping in and enjoying your summer. Well, the last day of school here, is June 30, and so it is time for me to get teachers gifts on the go. Here is one that I made up, and I put together a little tutorial on the flower for you.
I cut this flower out, using the new Island Floral Die (#118871) in the summer mini. It is a larger flower, almost 3 inches across ~ LOVE it! So, I cut 3 of them out, then rolled each into a ball, distressing it so the paper is more pliable. Then, after flattening it out a bit, I rubbed the ink pad right across the top of each. It really only gets onto the crease lines and makes for a more tattered look. I used Pumpkin Pie CS and ink here. Now it is time to assemble.
Is that not a STUNNING flower ?!? I used the 1 1/4 circle of sahara sand CS, and one of the boho blossoms (#119852) in old olive. It is all held together with a build-a-brad (#109128), and the leaves are the large ovals (#119855) in olive, as well. The sentiment is from the Fresh Cuts set (#111634).
Here is another close-up, isn't it great? It almost looks like a big poppy! Don't worry, I have the FREE tutorial for the box HERE! Even if school is out for you, this is a great little gift box for just about anything. Man, you could even put one of these beauties on a card. Tootles, have fun and happy stamping!!
