Flourish with a Bling is the sponsor for Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #205.
Who doesn't like bling?
(Other than the Scrabble dictionary on my Kindle which insists it isn't a word.)
Check out the Flourish with a Bling store for many colors of rhinestones and pearls, absolutely gorgeous flourishes and beautiful flowers.
But no cheating gals, because this week at Tuesday Throwdown we want to see your handmade flowers.
The very first Make and Take that I taught at a stamping show, several years ago, was handmade roses. I decided that for this week's Tuesday Throwdown DT project I was going to make some of those roses. Starting with little square pieces of DP, the old memory kicked in and I made a few to decorate this gift bag.
|(I've used a CTMH stamp on the tag.)|
It was such fun meeting all the people at that first show and watching them carefully carrying their paper roses until the glue and glitter gel dried. I'm already looking forward to teaching Make and Takes at 3 shows this fall in Westminster, MD, York, PA and Edison, NJ.
Now it's your turn to make some flowers, add them to a project and enter them in Tuesday Throwdown Challenge # 205. I am anxious to see them all.
And, by the way, my online girlfriend, Donna, has posted two flower tutorials on her Creative Smiles blog here and here showing you how to transform plain prima flowers into wonderful accessories for your cards and projects.
I'll be entering this gift bag with tag in the following challenges:
Craft-Dee Bowz July Challenge - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow
Crafting from the Heart Challenge #28- Always Anything Goes
