And of course with vases - it must be flowers. The tags I made earlier in the week (click here) have been attached to these gifts.
I would like to give credit to Jessica, from Created by Rosie, for the awesome tutorial (click here) for these roses.
I used double-sided papers for the roses, and inked the edges before rolling.
I did put the leaves together slightly different, in that I doubled each leaf so that I couldn't see my messy glue and wires; I ended up cutting, inking and embossing 56 medium leaves at 2" (fun5 leaf, page 22), 14 large leaves (2.5") and 7 base leaves (sunflower 4, page 17) which I only cut one for each rose, phew:-)
Sprayed the finished flowers with home-made glimmer-mist to finish them off.
I hope you like the finished result - I'm going to give myself a day or two off crafting now, I need to get some house work done:-)
I already have some ideas in my head for up coming projects, so stay tuned.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.
