Crafters Companion Flower Dies

The wonderful team at Crafters Companion are releasing a wonderful new range of dies and the fantastic E Bosser machine. Sadly I dont get to lay with the ebosser but I did get to play with some stunning dies.

The dies are for making paper flowers for all your papercraft and other crafting projects.

The dies that I was given to work with were the rose dies. These came in large and small. I also had a leaf die. Basically you use them in your grandcalibur or other die cutting machine and cut out any paper or card that you want your flower to be made with. Once cut out you then need a quilling tool to roll them up. Once glued you open them up to produce a wonderful flower.

I had such fun creating numerous flowers using different shades of coordinations card. My 1st thought was to make a flower arrangement in a basket but half way through i had a mad panic thinking how on earth it would go through the post so I changed my idea into decorating a wicker wreath. For the stamens of the flowers I made some gold wire coils using my gizmo and added to some a red glass bead. The wire was then used to attach them to the wicker wreath.I made some of the leafs using the die and added around the wreath. With some ribbon added the perfect gift for someone.So to finish it off I had to create a box


I made the box out of centura pearl card and added on the top a 8X8 piece of coordinations card that I had put through a 8X8 embosillicous dots folder. I then added the frame made from coordinations and the Diesire enchanted spring die and added a stamped sentiment. More flowers were put around the frame and there you have it;

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked my creations xxx
