Fresh Vintage Blog Hop - 3D Wrapped Flower


Welcome to the Sizzix Fresh Vintage Blog Hop! I am always so honored when Eileen Hull asks me to participate on these hops, and this round is probably the most exciting one to date! The new Fresh Vintage series is a great group of dies - I honestly don't know how Eileen keeps coming up with these amazing ideas. Today's featured die is the 3D Wrapped Flower. It's a fun, trendy flower that can be done up quickly and with great variety.




For my wreath project, I started out with a wreath base from the craft store. I die cut patterned papers from Grant Archival - and because this is a steel rule die from Sizzix, you can easily cut two pieces of paper at once. Assembling those pieces is as easy as using a piece of tape - seriously! I mixed and matched papers to create a whimsical look. To tie them all together, I used Wild Honey Distress Stain (Ranger) on the edges. The button centers were created with Epiphany Crafts' button tool, then highlighted with some Copper Stickles (Ranger).



To adhere the individual flowers, I just pulled out my handy glue gun and put them in the blank spots on the wreath. This is such an easy, one-of-a-kind project - and it would be so fun to have them for every occasion during the year!

Would you like a chance to win this die? All you have to do is head over to the Oh My Crafts! Blog and enter! It's that easy! And to continue on the Blog Hop, please just use the widget on the right and click Back or Forward - you will continue along with the other designers highlighting this fantastic die. Thanks for joining me today, and thanks to the incredibly talented Eileen Hull for putting together such an inspiring hop!
