Fred She Said Valentine Chocolate Box
Greetings everyone. If you are looking for the Fred She Said Blog Hop, please go here. This weekend I finished up this Fred She Said Box of Chocolates Cards. I was going to try to make those new rolled roses that everyone is making with the scalloped punch....well guess what they didn't work out for me.
Well, I bet you think I used Prima flowers on this instead...they look like Prima flowers don't they. I must confess that I made these flowers. With a punch and some glue, a little dazzling diamonds and stickles and I was able to achieve this. Cool huh! Can someone tell me if dazzling diamonds glimmer mist just looks frosty and not glittery? I am wondering if I might be doing something wrong. I have not gotten any glimmer mist that I care for because I don't see glitter when I spray....just frost like glistening. Help! lol
I have made a couple sizes of these roses and they look good in any size. I will share a tutorial with you when I finish my Mother's altered Chocolate box I am making her. I have my things ready to go for doing the tutorial, but my videotographer was busy this weekend pulling an engine....yes, we all have our projects around here.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you got some inspiration to create some feminine and frilly valentines. My image can be found here at the Fred and She Said Store. I've got some more things to share this week, so be sure to stop by later in the week.
