It’s time for another challenge at Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog. This weeks challenge is to create a project with tissue paper. Well I own tissue paper, but have never used it before. The flowers and leaves are all made with Stampin’ Up! Cherry On Top Cotton Paper Assortment (tissue paper) I can’t believe how fun and easy it is to make these flowers. I used the Pansy Punch and cut 4 Watermelon Wonder flowers. For the yellow (Crushed Curry) flowers, I used the Petite Petals Punch. Use a mini brad to keep them all together in the center and crunch them. Yep, that’s all there is to it. I will be making more tissue paper flowers in the future.
For the layout, I used #PPA294.
I almost always make a card with someone in mind to receive it. This time I didn’t, so if you want it, please leave me a comment at the top of this post. I’ll draw a name and send it to you. You may need to unscrunch the flowers after it travels through the mail.
Do you all have your flowers and gardens planned for this year? I can’t wait! I love growing flowers and also have seven small vegetable beds. One is Abby’s and she usually grows pumpkins. I have one tiered bed for strawberries. One large bed of raspberries. I usually go out early every morning and pick these. I like them so much, I’m not sure my family knows we have a raspberry bed, because raspberries rarely make it into the house. 🙂 The rest of the beds are for vegetables and herbs. One of my goals this year is to learn how to preserve the herbs in the fall so we can enjoy them all winter. I also want to start some tomatoes and other vegetables from seed in the house and I have never done that before. If you have any herb or vegetable tips, please let me know. I would love to hear them.
