Playing with Dimensional Flower Punch

Hello crafty reader!  During my last Joann's visit, this new tool caught my eye:

It's a Dimensional Flower Punch by EK Success, meant to create dimensional flowers.

I have seen a lot of crafters making flowers out of punched edges, but I haven't seen an acutal edge punch for that particular reason.  I thought that was pretty cool.  And aside from its original purpose, you can still use this punch as a typical border or edger as well.

The instructions tell you to punch a 12 inch strip of designer paper.  And to create your 3D flower, you need two 12 inch long petal strips.  It took me several tries to make a decent flower, and this was the best one:

After playing some more, I was able to make this ornament, composed of 6 flowers:

I can't wait to play some more!  This sure is a fun tool to have.  Its MSRP is $17.99, but Joann's had all their scrapbooking tools at 30% off, so I got a better deal.

'Til next blog!
