Today's hop is all about daisies and I just wasn't sure what I could bring to the table for this one. Not that I don't like daisies, I just didn't know what I wanted to make...A scrapbook layout? - I didn't have any pictures to go with the daisy theme. a card? - I haven't made a card in sooo long (so I could use up some scraps?). Instead I opted for this super easy project. I started with this fabulous Shocking Pink Glitter Sorbet paper. I just love all the glimmer in this paper. Did you know they hand glitter all their paper?
I cut 3 strips of the paper at 1 by 12 inches and used my
Martha Stewart scoring board and scored 1/2 sections
and then I flipped the paper over and scored at 1/4 inch.
This makes folding accordian style so much simpler.
Then I hotglued the sections together to make those famous medallions.
I have made a lot of these and really enjoy the look,
but I wanted to put a spin on these.
I then punched out a starburst out of the Kiwi Glitter Sorbet.
This is such yummy paper. I really cannot get over how sparkly it is.
and hot glued it to the center to keep the medallion together.
but here is my twist. CUT it apart.
Just cut all the peaks just to the starburst.
This kinda gives it more depth and makes it a bit fuller.
Sounds weird, but it's true and I think it represents a daisy like look.
Then I hotglued stems to the back of the medallions from my stash
I added some 3d crystal lacquer and of course...
tiny dew drops.
And here is my trio of Live, Love, Laugh
I love how these turned out and I hope you enjoyed a
"new" spin on an old craft.
