Build a Flower/Build a Brad
I bought the Accents and Elements Build-A-Flower tin a long time ago.... just for quick easy cards and scrap pages. And, that's what I need... quick and easy. I discovered that some of the self sticking pieces in the tin, fit perfectly into the center of the Build-A Brads! How perfect is that? Kinda cute I think. I'm hoping to whip up a bunch more. Couldn't be any easier! And sometimes, we all need a little easy eh?
Here's one more. Again, SUPER easy and under a minute to put together.. no kidding!
Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Much Appreciated, Short and Sweet.
Paper: Shimmery White, Rose Red Prints Designer Series Paper.
Ink: Rose Red
Other: Build-A-Flower, Build-A-Brad, Crafter's Tool Kit, White Taffeta Ribbon. Corner Rounder Punch.
Okay, so thanks for being patient, here is a quick tutorial on how to make the criss cross design with your corner rounder punch. This great idea was shared with me by one of my downline (and Aunt), Roseanne Knowles. Thanks babe! Remember, you can always click on the photos for a larger view. :)
Take your paper and line up the very edge of the V in the center of your corner rounder punch (guide removed).
If you want, you can start in the middle of your paper so that each end comes out equal. If so, just start in the middle and push the punch all the way in as if you are going to make a scallop edge. Continue with the following step.
Slide the punch down and continue to line up the end of the V notch with the edge of the uncut paper. Repeat this step until you reach the end.
Hope this makes sense with the photos... get a scratch piece of card stock and practice.... it's fun!
When you are done, it will look like this:

Sorry I haven't posted much this week. I've been struggling again with back issues. I see THE back Dr. on Monday. I'm hoping for a solution other than surgery and popping Advil like candy all day. It's SOOOO frustrating.
Hope y0u all have a great rest of the week. Thanks for stopping by!
