We’ve had some amazing weather the last couple of days, so I’ve had a hard time focusing on things in my craft room – especially after spending the bulk of the weekend creating for a few pub calls. But I did get a chance to create a little sumpin’ sumpin’ for this week’s CARDS Magazine Gallery Challenge – which is to create a project using accordion flowers. I’ve actually been really fascinated by these babies of late, and was happy for the chance to try one out. I wasn’t brave enough to figure out how to make one on my own – thankfully, Memory Box has made it easy for scaredy cats like myself. They’ve come out with an uber cool die that creates a really nice scalloped edge, and it scores it for you so that all you have to do is fold it accordion style and adhere the two ends together – it’s called the Blooming Rosette and Center. Super easy! Now that I’ve created one with the die, I really think I could do the same thing on my own with my border punches and my Martha Stewart Score Board. Right?! My mind is swimming with ideas, now!
