Well, it looks like I have a new obsession..flower cutting.
And, I have to admit I’m quite chuffed at having figured out an inexpensive way to get lots of flowers…
Now, I’m sure lots of people have already figured this trick out, but it’s new to me. I was actually in my car, on another one of my adventures to find some kind of poster or ephemera pack full of flowers, in other words, spend more money, but I actually just turned the car around and went back home because…
…I had already bought tons of floral scrapbook paper the week before.
All I needed is was a good pair of scissors and some time. Can you imagine how many flowers one could get from a paper pad with a 40% off coupon? Mindblown!
All I need is a few images, an insect or two, and some glue, (and of course a postage stamp.)
I love how some of them have a dark background to give the flower contrast. If bits of the flower peal up a bit, I tuck a piece of ephemera under it, like it’s giving it a little hug. (how cute is that!)
These little yellow roses had a red background that really made them pop. There are so many options with these, cards, mail art, decoupage…
I’m just so tickled to have found an easy way to have tons of flowers on hand, I use the heck out of them. I may have to add these to my ephemera packs. let me know if you think that’s a good idea, okay.
Thank you so much for the visit,
Have a great weekend,
