I had to go find a card to CASE for this one so I found this one – http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/846521?si=TLC153 For some reason I’m just not sold on me making these flowers. I like the look of them , I also like making folded paper flowers and I don’t have too much difficulty in folding the little cirles – but these are just not my ‘thing’ I suppose. Having said that I’m glad it was put up as the challenge because it’s a nice card/technique to have in my workshop gallery.
So, for everyone out there who has ever attempted to make one of these folded flowers, how do you get nice crisp, even folds on those little circles? Well, my friend, I have got some tips on this weighty question, but you’ll have to stay tuned. My camera is out of action so I can’t take the pics I need to upload.
Satisfaction Rating – 6/10 ( Workmanship is Ok, but overall the card just does not sing to me)
Have a great day everyone.
