Today’s Sizzix die is Flower, Beauty Bloom # 655455, designed by licensed artist and all-around great person Brenda Pinnick. The flowers can be used individually, layered, flat, curled, whole or split into petals…the options are only limited by imagination!
Since my last 2 hop projects had a neutral base, I decided to go with color this week. Lots of color. To make this tussy-mussy-style gift holder, I started by painting the paper-mache cone a bright green (Americana Citron Green, by DecoArt). Brenda was nice enough to send along some die-cut samples of her new fabric line “Couleur Vie” and some of National Non-Woven’s bamboo felt in coordinating colors along with the pieces cut from cardstock. I added a bracket shape cut from Brenda’s fabric and one of her other dies (coming to the hop soon!), and layered two yellow felt flowers that I dotted with gold Stickles.
After painting one of my corrugated kraft letters (Deja Views, love these letters!) in the same green paint, I layered the monogram and additional felt and fabric Beauty Blooms using Helmar’s Liquid Scrap Dots to add dimension and keep the layers level. A ribbon handle finishes the package, which is just the right size for a pair of earrings, candy treats, or other small gift.
Thanks for stopping by!
Keep hopping by using the buttons in the sidebar to the right, or by using the Sizzix blog hop master list. We will be hopping next week on Thanksgiving Day, so be sure to check back after your turkey is gone to see what we create using the Frame Scoreboards die by Eileen Hull.
Until next time…
