Best Creations Blog Hop!

The Details:

We are having our First Blog Hop of the new season today and our theme is "Creating Handmade Spring Flowers" On each blog you will find lots of incredible projects and ways to create and use spring flowers that you can make yourself! In order to win our Grand Prize be sure and collect the kinds of flowers made on each blog and send the list to teresa@bestcreation.us. Also be sure and leave comments along your way on each of our DT's blogs and especially on the Best Creation blog at the end of the hop. Be sure and check out www.bestcreationinc.blogspot.com for the list of prizes you are going to win.

The Sample:



Those that know me, know that I'm flower challenged!  I think that comes with raising 5 boys and 2 tomboys and not being very girly myself.  Flowers are just not on my list of favorite embellishments.  However, I have fallen in love with my Sizzix die --- it makes creating my own matching flowers quick & easy! 


Gather some scraps and my Cuttlebug:


Cut out multiple flowers in all different sizes and papers, spritz them with water and crumple them all up:



Then all you need to do is layer them with Best Creations Pop-dots and add some ink to the edges! 



Easy Peasy, right?  So that is the name of these flowers for you, the Easy Peasy Flowers!  Take note of that, leave me a comment and head on over to the next stop, the blog of Irit Shalom!
