Sending Love Flowers!
I know... pretty rare that I'm blogging with out it being a hop. I wish I did it more often, but I'm finding I have more crafting obligations then time. But enough about that...
Today I'm sharing a class that I did on Thursday with my group home ladies, for the Global Design Project: Theme Challenge! #GDP07
My group home ladies wanted to create something for Valentines and they LOVE making 3D items, so this is what I came up with. They'll have these beautiful flowers as decorations for the next few weeks and then come the big day, they can give them away to 1, 2 or 3 recipients!
To create the flowers, I used the "Sending Love DSP". I love the classic red and white of this DSP.
Each flower takes 20 hearts and believe it or not, you can get 18 hearts from one 6" X 6" piece of DSP. The trick: cut your DSP into 2" strips. Punch a heart, from one side of the strip and then punch the next one from the opposite side, alternating back and forth. Of course, punching them as close together as possible. Then all you need to do is fold all the hearts in half and glue them together!
Thanks for stopping in today, I hope you like what I've done with the beautiful Sending Love DSP. Until next time: Happy Creating!
