Wish granted: Concertina flowers part 2

Hi,
As promised we are back with the part two of our Concertina flower wish granted.
Today, Poupette and Isasart are using punches and score board to make their flowers.
Let us know what you think in a comment below  ;)

Starting with Poupette...

Cut a strip of papers and punch it with your favourite design

Score at regular intervals and glue both ends together

Make another smaller flower, attach them both to the card, adding a button and ribbon or embellishment in the center


To make her sample, Poupette used
Martha Stewart edger punch: Doily lace
BasicGrey 6x6 pads
CI-225 - Owl postage stamp
Katzelkraft rubber stamps - Norris and JMC: voyage quotes
Adhesive pearls: 3 and 5 mm
Distress Ink pad : antique linen , brushed corduroy , tea dye , weathered wood , Distress Ink pad: Stormy sky
Memento inkpad: Rich cocoa


******
Here's what Isasart has come up with.. Another fantastic tutorial for you.

Cut a 5 x 30 cm (2 x 12 inch) strip of paper and edge it with scissors or a punch

Add texture using a cuttlebug folder (here Victoria)


Use a score board for the folds and highlight the embossed design with  Distress ink

glue both ends together and add to your project.

Now for a second Rosette using crepe paper:

Cut a 60 cm (24 inch) border and stamp it with chalk ink

Then fold with your hands (no scoreboard, just an accordion), glue the ends together and add a touch of Stickles glitter glue on the edge

Cut circles and scalloped circles using your Nestabilities or Go Kreate die and add the Crafty Individuals image in the centre as well as metal charms. The dew drops can be done with Glossy Accents or Diamond Glaze.




use your flower for a beautiful vintage altered book


See you tomorrow for part 3.
