Roses with a Punch

Do you like Roses?  You can make a Rose with the Fancy Flower Punch and card stock.  I am working on a video to show you how easy it is to make this type of Rose.  Today you will just get a peek of the finished Roses in a Mini Milk Carton Vase.  So be thinking of what color of Roses you want to make.  Look for the video next week.
Fancy Flower Punch RosesMeanwhile gather your supplies:  Fancy Flower Punch, Paper Snips, Bone Folder, Glue Dots, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  You can go ahead and make the Mini Milk Carton vase now if you want to display your Roses.  You will need floral wire (the thicker the better), Needle Nose Pliers, and Wire Cutters.  I used Floral and Craft Glass Marbles in the bottom of the Mini Milk Carton Vase to help the Roses stay positioned.

Happy Flower Making!

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Mini Milk Carton out with your Bigz die using a 501/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Real Red card stock.  I used a shim (piece of card stock) under the die and the crease pad on top of the die and card stock.
2.  Fold and crease all score lines except the diagonal ones.
3.  Decide which two stamps to use from the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set.  I chose the reindeer and jingle bell.  Stamp one image in VersaMark ink alternating sections.  Sprinkle with embossing powder and pour excess back in jar.  Melt with Heat Tool on High.  Repeat stamping and embossing process with the other stamp.
4.  Put Sticky Strip on the side tab and three of the bottom tabs.  Flip over so the images are laying against your table and put Sticky Strip on the last bottom tab.  Remove backing from side tab and adhere to the side.  Remove backing from the first three bottom tabs and adhere together.  Remove backing from the last bottom tab and adhere it to the bottom of the Milk Carton.
5.  Stamp desired images and words from the Tiny Tags stamp set onto Whisper White card stock paying attention to the direction you want them to go when you are finished.  Punch out using the Jewelry Tag punch.   Use your Paper Piercing Tool and Mat and Pierce holes at the end of each little Tag.  Thread Baker’s Twine through the holes and tie the ends together. Pierce a hole through two layers of the top of the Milk Carton.  Insert brad and wrap the Baker’s Twine ends around the stem of the Brad.  Flatten out Brad tabs.  Put Sticky Strip over the Brad Tabs and stick the back section of the top portion together.  (I used Glue Dots and they didn’t hold well, so I would recommend that you use Sticky Strip instead.)
6.  Fill with a little surprise or treats for someone special.

Mini Milk Carton Vase

I am busy using up my Designer Series Papers.  This time I used Pocketful of Posies DSP.  I made this cute little Mini Milk Carton and filled it with a flower and some leaves left over from the Wedding Flower project.

Mini Milk Carton Vase

Make the Mini Milk Carton as usual.  I used Rich Razzleberry card stock to die cut the bottom strip using the Tasteful Trim die.  I stamped two flowers on Rich Razzleberry card stock with Whisper White ink, punched them out with the 5-Petal Flower punch, and curled the petals with the end of a thin paint brush.  Attach the Brights Glimmer Brad to the center of the top flower.  I adhered the two flowers together with  a Dimensional.  and adhered the whole flower to the Mini Milk Carton with a Dimensional.
