DesignTeamHeadshots_AmandaHappy Monday, Waffle Flower fans!  Amanda here today with another take on this month's Waffle Flower Challenge.  Inspired by the delicate white flower bouquet in this month's challenge inspiration photo, I set out to create a flower bouquet of my own.
Flower Heart Gift Bag
I love that the dies from Waffle Flower Crafts are so versatile.  The size and scale of the Rosette Hearts Template Die is perfect for small projects like cards, or for bigger projects like this gift bag.

I die cut several white rosette hearts and yellow circle centers using the Rosette Hearts Template die.  I folded a piece patterned paper to create the flower wrap and adhered the hearts to the bag to create a bouquet.  I stamped celebrate and the banner from the Congrats Stamp Set in two different shades of pink--#5 from the Spring Blend Ink Pad and #10 from the Summer Blend Ink Pad--and fussy cut the image before adhering it to the bag.

The Rosette Hearts Template Die add so much dimension to the front of the gift bag.  Cut a few leaves from patterned paper to add color and character to the flower heart bouquet.
Rosette Heart Die Assembly
Assembling the Rosette Hearts Template die is really easy.  Start by folding each half of the heart along the score lines, starting the folds in opposite directions.

Adhere the two rosette heart halves together at the top.

Bring the flat side of the rosette heart circle together in the middle, creating a cone-like shape.  Place a small dot of hot glue in the center of the heart.
