Open House Project 3

Vintage Flower - here is the 3rd project we made at last week's Open House - it is a simple flower made by punching 4-5 Extra Large Fancy Flowers using the SU Punch. This is similar to a project Shelli showed us at Leadership this year - and it was a hit at the Open House.
Instructions for Vintage Flower Make and Take

1) Tear a page out of an old book that you no longer want. The dollar stores are great for this. (you'll want to be sure the parts you punch do not include any off color words or sayings).

2) Randomly stamp over page any colors or stamp designs you wish. We used - the flourish with Handsome Hunter and the Medallion with Melon Mambo.

3) Punch four to five big flowers out of the printed area that has been stamped.

4) Gently crumple each flower in your hand and reopen it.

5) Sponge with a coordinating color (Melon Mambo) around the edge of each flower.

6) Punch a hole in the center of each flower and feed the corduroy brad of your color and size choice through the holes.

7) Spread out the petals the way you would like them to lay, and make sure prongs of brad are tight.

8) Flower is now ready for you to attach to your own gift, card or scrapbook page.

Stop back tomorrow to see the final project from my Open House.
