      I keep seeing some flowers made with the bloom tool on your projects! Post them here so we can see them!

        Here's the close up of my favorite flower I made with the bloom tool. I used the Marion Smith dies that came in the kit to make it.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

            I'd love to use that crepe paper in that bloom tool kit but I don't have a die cut machine. !sad
            I've been using the bloom tool quite a bit though. I'll take some pics shortly.

              Cheryl, those petals dies are so simple that you could just trace them and cut them out. 🙂 It would probably be quicker too. Cutting so many petals for one flowers took a LONG time. 🙂

                  I thought about that Rae. I wonder if I could trace them, scan them and make an SVG file for the Silhouette?

                        Here's a few I've made. More will be in this week's round robin layout. LOVE this tool!
                        I've found out too that when the paper is wet and you put it in the tool and then take it out, it sometimes flattens back out, soooo here's what I've been doing and it works wonders!
                        Don't remove the paper from the tool…………give it a quick dry with your drying tool before removing it from the bloom tool. It'll hold its shape that way.

                            Thanks Tracey and I forgot to say that some are made with paper and some are made with ink-sprayed vellum.

                                My bloom tool is coming with my May kit, so I will have to wait a little while longer to try and make any flowers! Can't wait!
