Hello blogging friends! Omgosh it so cold out today and it looks like it could snow! So far we have been lucky and avoided most of the snow, other then a light dusting about a week ago.
Today, I have a tutorial to share with you on how to create the decorative foil rose pin shown above. I made this a few months ago for a pub call but it wasn't one of the projects that got picked up. But on the up side I did have a few projects picked up and now I get to share this one with you. ;-)
To start I used S4-351 Spiral Blossom One and the Grand Calibur along with Premium Craft Foils Delicate Pastels Pink from Spellbinders to cut the die cut shape.
Then I used my paper piercer to roll or curl the edges or each petal on the foil die cut shape.
This is what the die cut looked like when I started to roll the edges.
Once I was finished rolling all of the petals this is what the die cut looked like.
Next I started to roll the foil die cut into the shape of a rose. While doing this I made sure not to roll it too tightly.
Then I used 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue from Beacon Adhesives to glue the bottom in place.
I wanted to add some leaves and I also needed a base for my pin so I used S4-328 Foliage and S4-345 Picot Edge Circles to create my die cuts. As you can see from the photo I cut the leaf die cut into three pieces.
Using 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue I started to assemble the decorative pin.
Here is a close up picture once all of the pieces were glued together.
I glued a pin back on the backside of the foil rose and and used it to embellish the little gift box.
To create the box I used Simply Smooth White cardstock from Discount Cardstock, LF-012 Square Petal Top Box and GI-004 Fancy Flourish Grand Impressabilities from Spellbinders. Then I used a pretty white ribbon to make a bow on top of the box.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Now I have to go and start on supper--we are having Creamy Cheesy Wild Rice Soup--Yummo!! I usually add chicken to the soup but we have a lot of leftover turkey so that's going on the soup. I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!!
