When the Spiral Flower Die came out in the latest Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue, it was one of the things right near the top of my list of “must haves”! I have to admit, however, that it hasn’t had as much of a work out as it should have, until now. I thought I would make up for it!
Continuing on with the current Crafty Boots Challenge theme of “Anything But A Card”, I have created a centrepiece using rather a lot of Spiral Flower Die roses! This could be used as a table centrepiece or a decorative piece in the home, or alternatively would be lovely for a wedding or special occasion.
I have used a lovely candle holder that was in the cupboard and definitely not getting enough use either, and stuck a foam ball into the top of it with some sticky strip. Then I have cut heaps of flowers, sponged the edges and rolled them to create different sized roses, and glued them on to the foam ball using a hot glue gun. And really, that’s all there is to it. I needed something a little monotonous to do while I was watching a great game of World Cup cricket, and it fit the bill nicely – something I could easily do while watching TV. 🙂
Make sure you head on over to the Crafty Boots Challenge website to see all the rest of the inspiration for this challenge from the rest of the Design Team.
One thought on “Paper Roses”
Chris this is so fabby, what a great idea. I love all of your sponged flowers, they look great in an arrangement.
