Papertrey Ink Flower Blog Hop


Today is the day for the May Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink. The challenge was to use flowers.

I decided to to make another post it note holder with an acrylic frame. The frame size is 4 inches x 6 inches. Utilizing two Papertrey Ink stamp sets, Flower Fusion #1 and Fillable Frames #5, I created my header.




First, I cut the frame out using the Fillable Frames #5 die. The border and sentiment was stamped on with Cottage Ivy Memento Ink and Versafine Black Ink. Then, I cut out the flowers with the Flower Fusion #1 die and then stamped on them with Versamark Ink. For the leaves, I stamped the stems with Cottage Ivy Memento Ink and then cut out just the leaves. Since I love using buttons as the centers for flowers, I threaded them with some white DMC floss and glued them on to the flowers. I hand cut the banner behind the header and attached it to the frame using pop up dots. The base paper is from American Crafts. A post it note was adhered to the frame. I quickly altered a RSVP pen and tied a pretty shear polka dotted bow to complete my gift.

Thanks for stopping by,
