A Blooming Thank You!

Hello everyone!  As I was putting the finishing touches on this project last night, my craft studio shook and rattled for a split second, rolling my chair I was in across the room.  Yes, it was a 4.1 about 40 miles off the coast, yet I felt it.  Uggg… I dislike earthquakes terribly.

Now on to the project.  A friend wanted me to make something like these that she found on Pinterest.  I used Microsoft Publisher and printed these out on cardstock and then using the “Center” function on my Cricut Expressions, I cut these babies out.

I used party streamers and sewed the edges (like this tutorial) and made rosettes.  I had previously baked a whole set of ribbon making curly ribbon and used those as the finishing touches.

I am thinking I may enter this into the Die Cuttin’ Diva’s challenge this week – I feel they are different and original to fit their “Anything Goes Challenge“.

Now off to deliver them!

Thanks for sharing a bit of crafty time with a bit of rock, rattle and roll to it” pie with me.

  4. Hi friend!! I’ve been neglecting your blog as I have been so busy with my DT work, but I just came over to catch up on your posts…. I love those little rossette guys! I’m so impressed cuz I’ve never made rossettes or used the center point function, lol. I’m glad the earthquake wasn’t bigger, but I know what you mean about not liking them! We experienced the “big one” (refraining from obvious inappropriate pun here) back in 1990 & that was brutal. The freeways were collapsing, the Bay Bridge cracked in half, total chaos. Ugh. Anyway, I’ll email you so we can chat more later….
