Spiral Flower Originals Die




So I am loving this Spiral Flower Die!!!  It is addicting and too much fun  - and also really easy to use!  The above video from Stampin' Up! shows how to use the die - and here's a project I made that I wanted to share with you -

 
 
I had seen a similar project while at Leadership and when I saw it, I knew I had to try it out myself!
 
So here's what I did to create this cute little sucker treat -
 
I wanted a fuller rose - so I used two pieces of Real Red Card Stock and cut them out at the same time with the Spiral Flower die and my Big Shot.  Because this is a steel rule die, you can cut four or five pieces of card stock at once!
 
I used a bone folder, as shown in the video to break down the card stock a bit so that it begins to curl. Then I started with the smaller end of the card stock and rolled it up to form the rose.
 
I used my glue gun to hold the flower together.    I added a jumbo pearl for the center of my rose.
 
To put the treat together .   I used the Blossom punch for my leaves - and punched this out with gumball green card stock.    I attached the "leaves" to my sucker, and used my glue gun to attach the rose to the leaves. 
 
I stamped the "love you" in real red ink on whisper white card stock.   And attached it beneath the rose.   To finish the sucker, I added a glue dot at the back of the sucker stick and wrapped a piece of gumball green stitched ribbon around the stick.  Cute!!
 
 
The Spiral Die is item #129379 and is just $17.95   I think that is a real bargain!!  If you would like to order supplies for this project, please visit my online store by clicking below on Shop Now!
 
 
 
Hope that wherever you are, you are staying warm today!!!! BRRRRR!!
