Today I have a few last things to show you that I made using the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit..specifically the pool party flowers. I hope you enjoy each way I made the flowers. I wasn't so sure about this set since I like to come up with my own 3-D flowers, but after playing with it and quickly and easily making flowers it won me over. :) There are so many other samples online line that you can check out too.
With this flower I snipped each of the petals in half, put in the brad, then folded each of the petals forward to give it some depth.
On this flower I sponged around the edges of the petals with Island Indigo ink, put the brad in, then crumpled the petals. The darker ink really adds some character to the flower. I actually forgot I had made a little note card that I had slipped inside of this little envelope until I grabbed it to take some pics. lol
These were actually my favorite flowers and of course the hardest to make! When I was messing around with the flowers I found I could make the crocuses by folding them a certain way. I know...crocuses aren't blue. I even checked online and they are pretty much all white, purple or yellow. I decided to make them anyway because they were unique and they made me look forward to the first flowers that pop up in my yard every spring. :)
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
