We are happy to share a tutorial today from My Creative Scrapbook Guest Designer Becky Williams. Read on to see how she turned the pink trim in our May Main kit into a beautiful flower.

Here's Becky:

"For my "How I Did That" this month I have a quick and easy handmade flower to share with you using some supplies from the May Main Kit.

strong liquid adhesive
pink trim from Main Kit
Circle punch (I used 1 1/4 inch)
small piece of cardstock for circle
Basic Grey bottle caps from Main Kit
stapler or needle and thread

1. Gather supplies

2. punch circle from cardstock

3. cut 6 inches of pink trim from Main Kit and gather into a circle as shown. Staple or stitch the circle closed.

4. Add strong liquid adhesive to punched cardstock circle. I used Ranger Glossy Accents. You could also use hot glue or any other strong liquid adhesive. Add trim circle to the cardstock.

5. Choose one of the Basic Grey bottle cap embellishments from the Main kit and add to center of trim flower. Push down to ensure it stays securely.

6. Allow to sit until completely dry.

7. Once dry add handmade flower embellishment to your project as seen here."
