Today we are focusing on the Collection 2 die-cuts. I love the Build-a-Flower die-cuts and consider them essential. They are perfect for focal points or embellishments and they cut felt or fabric beautifully.
I wanted something with lots of dimension because I plan to add this to the top of a little gift. (I refuse to be constrained by whether something will fit comfortably in an envelope. Ha!) To make the bloom I punched a small hole in the center of the flower then cut a slit with scissors from one petal to the center hole. I then overlapped and adhered 2 of the petals to form the small, conical bloom. A brad through the center is a nice touch.
I also made a cute pink picket fence with the Border : Fence die-cut combo and added some small birds (Baby Shower die-cuts) to the bottom corner.
Girl-y. Spring-y. Fun.
