Girls Weekend Wrapup

Well - we had another great weekend on the Cape!  I can't wait to share all the great projects with you over the next few days!

The bad weather held off until Sunday afternoon so the teens even got in some beach time with a little sunburn thrown in...  What is a day at the beach without a little sunburn?

This first project was made by my downline Michele LaCerda.  Michele has been in my downline now for almost 10 years!  And she never fails to surprise me with her creativity!  Not sure where she found this idea, but it is using an empty brads case.  As a demo, I have quite a collection of these!!

The flower is made by cutting cardstock layers using one of the Big Shot flower dies, such as Fun Flowers or Blossom Party. The ribbon is the narrow organdy ribbon with brad from Sale-a-bration.  The top is covered with the Everyday Enchantment Sale-a-bration designer paper.

To make this beautiful flower, crumple up the cardstock layers.  You want to break down the fibers of the cardstock so that you can peel away the layers of the cardstock.  Sometimes it helps to sprtiz the cardstock too.  So break the cardstock down so that it is thinner and then layer to make the flower. 

I just love this flower and little box!!  What a great favor for a wedding or wedding shower!
