Flowers Everywhere...

Oh My, I know I told of joining the flower swap at CIF- I had thought we had to make 3 flowers and would get 3 in return- Imagine my shock to find out this morning that it is 3 per person in the swap!  There are 10 in the swap (THANK Goodness no one else chose to join in, ROFL) so we each have to send in 30 flowers and will get 30 back!  Umm, I don't have 3 decent ones yet so I think I am going to go hibernate until Spring when they start growing again :)  I have been playing around with some flower files and just LOVE this one.  This is, of course, designed by Penny Duncan and is SO Simple to make but I doubt she will let me slide with 30 Poinsettias, LOL  Ok, if you look at them, you will notice one is missing a petal- the glue gun glued my finger to it and in trying to get it off I broke it.  This was the second one I broke off though- the first one was while making the flowers.  I watched Penny's Video and followed along step by step (pausing while I did my part) and she said to curl the leaves, so I paused it and started curling- broke off the leaf and thought "well, That wasn't supposed to happen" turned the video back on to hear Penny say "roll very carefully because if you get going to fast or pull on the leaf it will break off" Yep, She is surely correct on that one!  I think she needs to do the warnings BEFORE she shows me what to do in the future, LOL  *Hugs*

  10. Paper Glide is a HUGE help in making these and the neat tool set that they have on Scrappily Ever After's website. Look under Punches or Leonem's and Punch Bunch items, they even have rubber stamps to make flowers with.
