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.
