Introducing Eileen Hull's New Paper Flower Party Collection!
Hello there! Eileen Hull has a new collection, The Paper Flower Party Collection, that is about to hit stores in May! You can create endless varieties of blooms with the various die sets and the embossing folders complement everything. Check out the awesome projects the Inspiration Team has been sharing on Eileen's blog this month. I have a project to share that I made for CHA back in January. Of course it has no flowers on it but it does use the Flower Pocket die. ;-) It just goes to show you the versatility of Eileen's dies. They can be adapted for any occasion!
I envisioned the Flower Pocket as the perfect little container for packing with holiday treats to give as a gift. It was also very quick and easy to make.
First I cut the pocket out of Sizzles matboard (white). I used Ranger's plain Texture Paste and a snowflake stencil to add the texture. After it was dry, I sprayed the outside with Tumbled Glass Distress Spray Stain and Pearl Perfect Pearls mist. The inside I sprayed with Brushed Pewter and Iced Spruce. I didn't take any step photos in the pre-CHA craziness but this is the same technique I used to decorate this Loaf Pan. Check out that post for step photos and more details.
I punched holes around the edge using my Crop-a-dile punch and threaded crinkle ribbon through them. The tag is cut using Eileen's Kitchen Labels die set – they layer so nicely to make fancy tags.
Once the new dies arrive at your local stores in May, we'd love to see what you will create with them! Sharing is always welcome on Eileen's FaceBook page. Show us your creativity!
Thanks for stopping by! The supplies I used for this project can be found at Sizzix or Simon Says Stamp. Follow the links below and a shopping you may go. ;-)
