Layered flower box
Having a play with the gorgeous "scrumpled" flowers using nesties and circle punches - they are so fun and easy, all you need is the above some thin paper, a brad (I used some ancient cloud paper and some pearly insert paper) and a 3 year old child to do the scrumperling.. her word, not mine. And she scrumpled up a storm, there's plenty left over for her Easter baskets. I inked the flower edges with a bit of distress ink and just gave them a little tweak and they were done. Gorgeous. So I made a box with an acetate aperture and layered the flower inside - to keep it from damage and the box opens up to reveal a Mother's day gift (but that bit isn't quite finished). I added a Magnolia image from a swap last year - it was stamped on the back of some linen card with dye ink, so it didn't colour that great but it's ok....
So this is for the following challenges -
paperplay - something for a Mother
passion for promarkers - buttons and bows - last week!!
Magical Craft Challenge - something for mum
oh la la - acetate
