Ana's here with this week's post!
I started with basic business sized envelopes and cut the patterned paper. I used my crop-a-dile to punch the wholes and used ribbon to bind it all together.
It's spring! Who needs a better reason to celebrate?
For this week's midweek mojo, I want to share a less "traditional" project made from the May 2011 kit, Spring Soiree.
I was sitting in my craft room, looking out the window, and I saw a forsythia bush in full bloom in my neighbor's back yard. Forsythia is one of my favorite spring flowers, and as I was looking at it, I realized that I had that same bright, sunny yellow in the cardstock from the kit, sitting in right front of me on my desk.
I adapted some paper flower techniques I have seen around the web and experimented to make the four-petaled flowers... First, I cut out the shape, then I used an orange colored pencil to add a bit of shading to what would become the center of the flower. Next, I curled it a bit over a pencil so that it would curve more easily into a cone. Then curled each of the petals outward, and finally, I overlapped the two edge petals and adhered them together.
Then I went out into my back yard to find myself a stick (it wasn't hard! with all the storms we've had here, we have lots of little twigs in our yard). I used Glossy Accents to adhere the paper flowers to the branch, then showcased it in a shadowbox frame with black cardstock behind the matting.
The perfect piece to celebrate spring!

So this is my challenge to you...look around your house and see what you come up with to alter. It can be anything..a frame for a picture, a tin to keep all of those special notes in, a box to gift a gift in. I'm sure if you look ladies you have lots of stuff to alter and turn into something special!
