During my new catalog open house at a few weeks ago I demonstrated how to make a flower using the Stampin' Up! Filter Paper.
I'd had this product in my drawer for months and never used it. I figured, what better time than to use it and demo it at my open house. Oh, and I'm so glad I did.
I puched 8 scallop circles to create this flower. The easiest way was to use the circle shapes in the Filter Paper pack, fold it into quarters and punch. I was able to get 4 from one circle. I stacked them on my Paper Piercing Mat and using my Pierce Tool, made a hole in the center and added a mini brad to hold the layers together. I began in the center and started crumpling up each layer, one at a time. When I say crumple, I MEAN crumple. Once I had all 8 layers finished I loosened up a few layers with my finger to make it look a bit more natural. I was thrilled with the finished flower!
I used the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder and spritzed the finished product, flower and all, with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. Ohhhh, it sparkles so pretty – too bad you can't appreciate it in the photograph!
Oh, and let's not overlook that beautiful new heart border punch!
Isn't it lovely?
