BSS MONDAY IDEA - MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWERS

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Hello. Today's idea is to make your own flowers. And to help you do this
easily, I'm going to feature the new Tim Holtz, Alterations die from Sizzix,
Tattered Flower Garland ((657824).
It's a 12 inch strip die with lots of flower shapes and some leaves.
I ran different color strips of card stock through the die cutting machine to create lots of
petals to play with.
The cute little chick is from Stampendous (cling Bonnet Baby) CRH283
Designer paper is Jillibean, Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup.
Sizzix die is Label Four
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder
Pink and white baker's twine
Distressed edges and inside of the flowers with distress inks

Close up of flower and leave
Each petal has a hole in it for using a brad to put them together.

Another shape that is included in the die.
It's nice to have this die on hand for when you want flowers.
Lots of combinations.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great Monday.  Until later...........
