How to enhance a flower with some text....

I have so many Prima flowers and I love them but sometimes I want to change them up a bit!

I first punched out some large circles from a play book. Then I inked them with a gold ink for a light effect.



I cut slits in them...



For each flower I used 2 layers. Crumbled them up a bit...


Then placed a blue prima flower in the center...


Added a X brad to one and a O brad to another!


I also made some more and used them as such. I used blue ink on the top layer and brown ink on the bottom layer for this one...

What a great project! I would of never thought to use sheets from a book to make flowers. Thanks for joining me for Project Friday. These are too cute. Hugs, Rosemarie
