I Love Flowers

Yep, I love flowers.  I love flowers in my house, I love flowers in my garden, and I love flowers on my paper crafting projects.  I have been using and collecting flowers since those first bottles of Prima's Got Flowers hit the shelves at my local scrapbook store.

The flowers have changed a lot since those first bottles of flat flowers came out.  But they still make them.  And you can find them in the store as e-line flowers.  These are great fun, and can be used in so many different ways.

For this project, I decided I needed a small, more dimensional flower.  I had some flowers that were about the right size, but didn't really have the depth I was looking for.  So, I thought of some tutorials I have seen lately.  Lots of people making roses from 5 petal flowers.  Well, I have tons of 5 petal flowers all lined up on my shelf.

Here are the things I used; pink got flowers, glue, scissors and some yellow stickles (also in the store).

It only took 2 flowers to create this new flower.  All I did was cut one of the petals off one of the flowers.

I then glued the open edges back together.  This created more of a bowl shape to my flower.
You can really see the dimension now.

I then took the small petal I had cut earlier and glued its edges together as well.

I glued the three petal flower to the uncut flower.

and then added the single petal. 

 Finally I dropped in some stickles.

After making a handful of these lovely little roses

I made this.....

I loved the extra added dimension these flowers added to my floral spray.  I used a Cerise Fluttervine, some Bittles, and an orange Medici, all from Prima, as well.  I snuck in a bit of the Prima packaging as a photo mat and placed it all on a paper from the Paradise City line.

I hope you have fun playing with your e-line and got flowers.




  1. Fab way to use all those old flowers and love the way you combined them with newer ones!!!

  2. This is FABULOUS, Nancy!!! The LO is gorgeous and the flowers you made are the coolest!! Now, I need to go. I need to run and get me some yellow stickles so I can make own flowers! (would you believe I only have about 8 bottles of stickles? 2 Heather sent me!)
