My Creative Scrapbook Design Team member Sandie Edwards has prepared a flower tutorial featuring our June Limited Edition kit!

Here's Sandie:

"How to create a flower from trims:

1. Using the larger of the two trims in the June Kit, cut off a piece which has 7 points. Double thread a needle with strong quilting cotton, and tie off end well.

2. Run small gathering stitches along the non-pointed edge, as shown in Photograph 2.

3. Pull threads tightly as pictured in Photograph 3, to form flower shape, tie off well on back of flower. Please Note: Tiny stitches aids in getting a nice gather in the flower and it will sit a lot lower, and be less bulky. AND, adding a touch of glue to your knots will keep flowers from unravelling.

4. Use metal elements as shown in Photograph 4 from June’s kit, to create a flower centre. Any embellishment can be used, including buttons, beads, pearls, jewels, etc. for the centre part of flower.

5. Apply to your crafting project (Photograph 5). Please Note: The colour of your flower can be change easily, by using spray mist. You can create flowers which will match ‘any’ craft project."
