Have had an extremely hectic past two weeks. My daughter's dance concert was on Saturday (Two 3 hour shows, and they danced in 46 dances between the two of them). I spent the week before sewing costumes for 10 dancers and had to pull a few all-nighters to get them done. Up early Saturday to do their hair and makeup, and get them to the Entertainment Centre by 9am. Then busy selling raffle tickets, & helping backstage for the first show. Phew....still exhausted thinking about it! I got to relax and watch the evening show, which was fantastic.
Haven't had a chance to do any scrapping til tonight, so here's what I came up with for my design team post. I saw something ages ago on the net, but can't remember where. (I'd love to give credit if anyone can help me out!) Found it..... the clever person is Liz (perspicacious.org) on Flickr. Mine is a little different using only five 'petals', and adding the flowers to the centre.
I made this using Graphic 45 Christmas Past paper, Spellbinders and Marianne Designs dies, plus a little bit of ribbon/cord, gold Stickles, and Kaisercraft pearls.
I cut five labels, and then used the four smaller dies as a guide to cut four < > shaped cuts. Hopefully this shows up on the photo. ( Make sure you don't cut through the centre.)
I curved the first < > shapes around a pencil and then glued them to each other, overlaping the point.
Bend the centre of each petal to glue it to the next. I used the Marianne Designs Poinsettia die to cut some flowers, I adhered these to the centre, and added some Stickles and a pearl. I hope the pictures make this easy to understand
