National Craft Month Day 2

I was set to playing with my flower punches and dies for the second day of National Craft Month. 

My goal was to layer them and make 3D flowers.  I'm going to use them for the school's bulletin board at work, and my theme would be Spring.  The winter has been long, cold and white everywhere.  And I'm longing to see color through the flowers.  Hopefully, these 3D flowers will put a smile on the students' faces, and be more excited about the coming Spring.


First, I punched and cut a lot of my scrap paper and cardstock.  I pressed the flowers with an embossing pen/tool for the petals to fold somewhat.  This works well when you do it on a mouse pad.  And then, some of the cuts, I embossed with Cuttlebug A2 folders for more dimension.  Then, I layered and attached them using a glue stick.  I did a little bit more folding, then finished  by applying glitter glue in the center of each flower.

I had fun making these flowers.  It's really easy and you can use them as embellishments in a variety of projects, even in your scrapbook layouts.
And that completes my day two of National Craft Month.
