|The sticky strip circle...then start laying punched strip round and round...|
|The center piece wrapped tight....|
|(this photo should be second but I can't seem to move it) the flower before the center is adhered...|
This flower looks pretty work intensive, but it's really simple! Start with a 1 3/8 inch circle punch in the same color as your flower...cut out the same size circle in sticky strip sheets and adhere to your circle..set aside....take 2 strips of cardstock (1 x 12 inches) punch out the Eyelet border punch along one side and run through the crimper 3 to 4 times to soften the strip....start winding the flower around the sticky strip circle, forming the flower....take the other strip and wind real tight to form the center of the flower (you made need to adhere this center with additional adhesive (I used a large glue dot)
Sorry the photos are out of order and the typing is underlined and several different colors...I still can't get this computer thing right!

Here's a swap from the Christmas demo swap I joined this month....this card is from my very talented fellow demo/friend Erica Tannenbaum...she ran a piece of tin (available at craft stores) through the Big Shot with the newest embossing folder (Vintage Wallpaper)...and I believe that's a piece of the new waffle paper (under the white ribbon and pearl), available in the Holiday Mini...I was wondering what you are supposed to do with that?! The adorable snowman image is from the Jolly Ol' St. Nick stamp set....doesn't her look cute in pink?
Stay tuned for some more swap samples and my take on them....
