# embossing pads # flourish

Friday Fun fit for a Princess

Today I am going to give you a mini tutorial.
Very mini as I will show you the 1st couple of steps and
then you get to do your own thing past what I share.
I saw this done by
Rhonna Farrer, she calls them Lollipops.
Mine are called CUTE FLOWER ON A STICK!
I am so creative, I just can't help it!
What makes mine unique is that mine are made with some really fun papers from Grafix Art called:
To start the CUTE FLOWER ON A STICK project, you will need some paper cut into 4 x 5 inches. I used 4 pieces of the SILVER METALLIC BOARD.
I also used my Wittle Weaver 1/2" strip die with the Thin Embossing Pad.

By using the embossing pad, this embosses perfectly measures fold marks for these flowers.
First step, you guessed it, do the accordion fold with all 4 pieces of paper.

Next, fold each accordion in half.
Glue the center seam of each piece to create these fan shapes.

Next glue all four fans together and look a Jello mold!!
Now from here you can do whatever you want, however,
I do not recommend pouring Jello into it!

I used so many dies on this, where do I begin?

After I got the Silver Flower Base all formed, I started by putting a white HEARTLAND AMERICANA Heart down and then trimmed the white heart with the Polka Dot Pink paper.

After that I used the FANCIFUL FLOURISH and cut it out with the sparkly green FUNKY FILM.


I used an assortment of papers and more sparkly FUNKY FILM that is pinkish peach with the JUDY'S BLOOM die.

I got this cute little box from my local Ben Franklin Craft store. They have these bins that are full of $1.00 items and this little box (originally blue) was one of my finds in the dollar bins.


I covered the box with matching paper and FUNKY FILM flowers. I poured rice in a baggie and made some tulle puffs to disguise the rice.

I then stuck my CUTE FLOWER ON A STICK in the rice and created this adorable centerpiece.

Wouldn't this be fantastic as a centerpiece for a little princess?
My princess thinks so!
