First off, I was AMAZED at the response to my last post! Thanks so much to everyone who visited, left wonderful comments, and became a new follower! It really made my week! I am still shocked that anyone looks at this little blog:) I have visited every blog of people who have commented and become new followers, and I am in awe of all the talented people out there! I love looking through blogs and learning something new:)
So how about a flower clip tute and a giveaway to say "thanks"!
I found these flowers in the craft section at Target. They were on clearance for $1.98 and I loved the colors. They look as if they are hand stamped and the designs on each one is unique.
When I opened them up I discovered that they were a thick canvas...not paper, so of course they had to become flower clips for my daughter, right?
First, I paired them up in ways that I thought looked appealing. I took some of the flowers and placed them face down in the center to add a little more dimension to the design. I also trimmed the petals on some so that they would stack better.
Next, I glued each flower together and then glued a craft gem in the center.
Finally, I attached them to an alligator clip like I have shown here.
So, are you interested in a chance to win two of my clips? I would love to give them away! Just leave one comment (to make it fair) at the end of this post and next Sunday I will randomly pick a winner for these two clips below!
So, go! Make your own scrapbook flower clips, and leave a comment for a chance to win two of mine! Saturday (9.4.2010) will be the last day to comment:)
Again, thanks for all the blog love!
