Well I've been at it again - I've been making more paper roses (it's a bit of an addiction getting).
Remember I said I was going to use my new (old) books that I acquired a couple of days ago - well here are the results when made into paper flowers as well as some others I've made (the spotty one was made by my sister which she would insist I tell you).
All the flowers on this post have been made by hand, inked or made with patterned paper and glued together with PVA.
Anyway, I've made this little gift box for someone special - I can't reveal what's inside yet in case the intended recipient reads - I'll reveal once its been delivered though. Here are several pics of it:
This is winging its way in tomorrows post - hope Mr Postman is kind to the package!
The box was cut out using my silhouette cutter - I then inked it up with my Vintage Photo distress inks. The leaf flourishes were also cut on the silhouette. I stuck the flowers on the box with pinflair gel glue - its brill stuff and I use this for little jobs I don't trust PVA to be able to do. I really enjoyed making this and turning flat pieces of plain paper into something that's 3D.
Thanks for dropping by,
