Spiral Flower Sucker Treat

Today I’m sharing my final project from my Big Shot Class which featured the Spiral Flower Die.  The flower was made by punching a small hole in the last section of the spiral and inserting the sucker stick through the spiral rolled flower, so that the sucker is the center of the flower.  Attach the flower to itself with a Hot Glue Gun.  The leaves on the stem are made simply by tying ribbon to the stick.  You can follow along with the photo tutorial.

 

 
I’m also excited to share with you a new way for me to list the supplies used for each product.  I can now show a photo of each product along with the description and price of the item, so you can see exactly what the product is.  The best part is that you can click on the photo and you will be brought directly to my online store, so you can purchase the product you need.  How cool is that?  Let me know what you  think of this new feature.
 

Spiral Flower for Easter

Here’s another project we made at this weeks Spiral Flower Die Big Shot Class.
This time we used card stock in Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant and spiral rolled them together.  After assembling the flower with a hot glue gun, we layered it on 2 punched pieces of the Fancy Flower Punch, then spritzed water on the whole flower and started bending each petal back.  I love the two toned effect.  We used the flower to embellish the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes filled with thin strips of Wild Wasabi card stock crumpled up for grass.  I plan on filling these boxes with Cadbury Eggs for a fun Easter treat.

Kisses to Enjoy

 
My Spiral Flower Die Class was a big hit last night.  Here’s the second project we made using the die they each got to take home with them.  By not rolling the flower quite as tight, we were able to attach a Hershey’s Kiss into the center.  Wouldn’t these make great spring party favors?
 
 
Here are the pieces we used.  I sponged around each piece and rolled the spiral on a bamboo skewer.
 
 
Next, I attached a kiss to the end circle of the spiral piece with a dimensional.
A little hot glue hold the whole thing together, then it’s finished off with 2 punched Blossom Flowers under the spiral flower and leaves from the Bird Builder Punch.
There is a slight learning curve to making the flowers with the die, (last nights ladies found that out)  But by the time we finished all of our projects they were pros at it and you will be too.  Stay tuned for a few more Spiral Flower projects the next few days.
