For the Love of Purple…and Flowers!

WT waxpaper flower clsup

What a find when I visited my friend,
Lori Craig’s blog, and found this wax paper flower! How FUN!!

So, of course I HAD to make one!

Just fold layers of wax paper and die cut. Spellbinders Blossom 3 was used here. So easy on my Grand Calibur!

Then punch a hole with your piercing tool, hold together with a brad and separate the layers!

The base is embossed with a Sizzix folder, “Frame”. I stamped the largest of the Fancy Labels (Spellbinders Labels 17) from Our Daily Bread designs in Dusty Concord distress ink. That luscious ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

It is really a quick card to put together yet looks like you spent hours! Winking smile

Stop and say HI at the Memories Scrapbooking Expo tomorrow and Saturday!!

Fabulous! LOVE your take on the wax paper flower. I tried one on the cricut a while back (WAY too time consuming). LOVE your die cut idea. It looks super gorgeous.
