Flowery Note Keeper


Here is my Flowery Note Keeper project that I made for the Linnie Blooms/ Stampendous Blog Hop, I hope you like it.



This started out as a simple block of wood, and with the help of some fabulous supplies I transformed it into this really practical and cute (if I do say so) piece.


You too can make this by doing the following.

Step1. Paint the block and clothes pin. Let dry.

Step 2. Paint canvas flowers and butterfly.  Let dry.


Step 3.  Stamp with embossing or pigment ink using Stampendous stamps (Cling Hydrangea) and Stampendous powder (Crystal) on a piece of card stock.  Heat set.


Step 4.  Stamp again with just ink.

Step 5.  Stamp painted canvas flowers with Flower stamp and Black ink.  Also stamp the painted canvas butterfly with the butterfly stamp and black ink (Both sides)


Step 6.  Cut out flower images from card stock and create depth with a stylus.


Step 7.  Cut canvas flowers. Cut Butterfly in half.

Step 8.  Begin assembling the pieces with glue (I used Aleene's Tacky Glue) and some dimensional foam tape.

Step 9.  Add some detail (seed beads for flower centres.) Twist a piece of green trim for the butterfly's body and glue in place. on top of the clothes pin.  Use a black pen to add high lights.

Step 10.  Attach pink ribbon and clothes pin with more glue.
