Before I put away Floral Wings, I thought I’d try one using all the new In Colors and those cute little embellishments! I stamped each vase – starting from the middle and working to each side – added the stems and glued the flowers to the tops. The little pearls have just a drop of glue to make sure they stay put. The background embossing folder is Decorative Dots. Hugs, Fran
Here’s another Gift Bag Punch board idea using Floral Wings (hostess set.) I used a 12 x 12 piece of Crumb Cake and created a bag as shown on the punch board. Before I folded the score lines (while it’s still flat) I stamped some little flowers long the bottom of the bag in Crumb Cake ink. Then I added a Rich Razzleberry banner, a butterfly in Lost Lagoon and Rich Razzleberry and a little sentiment banner. The closure for the bag was punched before the entire bag was put together. I measured down and marked the sides on each fold line and punched it using a 3/4″ punch. Then just wrap the Lost Lagoon ribbon around it and tie into a bow. Add some pearls and a piece of Baker’s Twine for antenna. It’s nice to have some gift bags ready to fill when needed. Hugs, Fran
Floral Wings is a two step (really 3 step!) hostess set. Because it’s photopolymer, it’s really easy to use. I chose to put the butterfly on a Decorative Window Gift Box. To make this, stamp the butterfly twice in Basic Black. Add the flowers in Melon Mambo and the leaves in Old Olive. Die cut both butterflies using the Bold Butterfly die.
Use the flower stamp to stamp around the sides of box using Crumb Cake ink. Adhere a 1/2″ strip of Melon Mambo paper around the box – make sure to leave the lid free so it will open.
Adhere the butterflies together in the middle and attach to the box. Add Dimensionals (I stacked them 2 high) under the wings and add your sentiment. I glued a small piece of Baker’s Twine to the top of the butterfly to make antennae and pearls to the centers of the flowers. Fill it with something wonderful and give to a friend! Hugs, Fran
