    Today, I was thinking of doing a card, on which I only wanted to use rectangle shaped PP.
    And here's what I came up with.

    hopeyourday600.jpg

    1-3.jpg

    I cut some rectangle's of PP and I cut out my bird.

    2-3.jpg

    Distressed and inked all their edges. Choose my sentiment.

    3-3.jpg

    Added some Gesso (using my finger as brush) to the smallest rectangle, to create a highlighted spot for my sentiment. Set it aside to dry.

    4-3.jpg

    I took a piece of tule, which was as wide as my card is, and ruffled it to the double sided adhesive.

    5-2.jpg

    Placed my first piece of PP

    6-2.jpg

    Placed my second piece of paper.

    7-2.jpg

    glued my tule and added pearl strand. Glued it down using hot glue.

    8-2.jpg

    stamped my sentiment with Archival ink. Archival ink is a permanent ink, and will stay
    on the gesso-ed spot.

    9-1.jpg

    Glued my bird in place.

    11-1.jpg

    cut some cardboard to raise my sentiment and glued it to the back.

    12-1.jpg

    made a bow out of tule and glued it in place, using hot glue.

    13-1.jpg

    glued my sentiment in place.

    14-1.jpg

    made some flowers, using Tim Holtz's pinecone die.

    15600.jpg

    glued my flowers in place and added some punched leaves.

    16600.jpg

    glued my last flower in place and called it done!!!
    *******************************************************************************

    How did I get these flowers in shape?

    f1.jpg

    I cut PP with the pinecone die. Inked up the edges.

    f2.jpg

    started to pinch the little petals in the middle.

    f3.jpg

    looks like this

    f4.jpg

    then I shaped the tops of the petals by bending them backwards.

    f6.jpg

    Then I started to roll (I started from the outside) rolled it between my fingers.

    f7.jpg

    till I had something like this. I know Tim uses a toothpick for the rolling part, but that doesn't work for me.

    f8.jpg

    Then I held the last part, bottom part in one hand, and started to tu the inner flower in the opposite direction, which makes it a little loose.

    f9.jpg

    add a big blob of hot glue

    f10.jpg

    I pressed the flower into the hot glue. Hold it there till it was cooled down.

    I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
