Decorative Foil Rose Pin and Square Petal Top Box

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!!
