This flower die is based on a punch flower I’ve shared earlier. I tested the petal sizes and shapes over and over again to make sure that we will have nice dimensions without using foam dots! I’ve always wanted a versatile flower die and so far I have come up with 6 different flowers that can be made from this one! Shown below: the Basic flower.
Instead of a hot glue gun, we are going to use a brad to hold the petals together. I’ve been trying to come up with ways to use the beautiful brads I’ve collected, haha! Assembly starts at 2’50″. Watch the video below or on YouTube.
And here is the finished card with the random background.
Back in January this year, I shared some faux pockets made from leftover die cuts. Anyone still remembers them? They were a hit, right? Haha!
My new pocket die is evolved from this idea. Instead a faux pocket, the front and back panel have flaps to hold them together and instead of one opening shape, we have five! I have come up with more uses for them and will share the ideas tomorrow. Watch the video below or on YouTube.
And here are some more photos of the finished card showed in the videos:
The Pocket / Gift Card Holder:
