I'm thrilled with the Weekly Deals today; two of our newest punches are on sale!
I don't believe I've shared these projects using the Festive Flower Builder punch. Look what you can do with it!
My friend Marilyn made all of these gorgeous flowers for my Holiday Open House display. You might wonder how she made a few of them.
The centers for the Mint Macaron flowers are actually a few of the little petals that she cut up and curled to create a fringed center. And that petite Red flower is made with just the small double petals in the middle of the punch. She used a bone folder to get the curves in the petals and she actually scored a few of them with a stylus to get a perfect crease in others. See the green holly leaves on the bottom? She used a circle punch on a punched petal to get that shape. Isn't she awesome!?
The Festive Flower Builder punch is part of the Reason for the Season bundle on page 31 of the Holiday catalog. But as you can see above you can use it without the stamp set too. Below are a few more samples made with the punch and the coordinating stamp set.
