1-3/8" Circle Punch Flower

I LOVE the Elegant Soirée Papers..... $16.95 (Page 127 Australia Ideas Catalogue 2010-2011)

I've been wanting to try out this flower embellishment for months.... using the 1-3/8" Circle punch!!!

I am glad that I took that opportunity last week in my scrapbooking class... it is not hard to make just a little fiddly... You fold the circle in 1/2 then in 1/2 again.. then you unfold them and fold the edges around to the center... to create a cone like shape... which is then each petal.. You need 8 of these to create the whole flower...

1-3/8"  Circle Punch Flower Embellishment Now I did not have any buttons to put in the middle of the flower so I took the 1/16" Circle punch and made 2 little holes for the button holes.. then punched it out using the 1/2" Circle Punch... Then using Crystal Effects you can make the button Convex and quite thick with a generous coating... You do need to allow this to dry for an hour or so though placing it on plastic so that if it does stick you can lift it off reasonably easy.... With this technique under your belt if you do not have buttons to match your project there is a way that you can create them yourself....

Gathered Ribbon Embellishment
And I also wanted to try this new technique with ribbon that we learned at Regionals too... You take a single fiber of the satin ribbon and gather it... Then use lots of glue or tie it off so that the gathering is secure... It is a really nice embellishment to add that shabby chic look....
