Guest DT Member Liz - Post 3

Hello Friends,

Have you taken time to craft this year? I was at my local Michael's store and found a dollar bin full of fabulous CUPCAKE wrappers. I bought a couple packs with the intentions of making great desserts. As I walked further, I saw some pre-packaged die cut flowers and of course grabbed them. THEN my crafting friends, I had a LIGHT BULB moment....

I can save money, have more choices and use my left over wrappers from past baking projects..

MAKE MY OWN DIE CUT FLOWERS USING THE CUPCAKE WRAPPERS...

I brought out my BIG Kick and Sizzix Tattered Floral die by JIM HOLTZ ~ I used 2 wrappers that I battered by folding, rolling and scrunching them up.. I made them look wrinkled then straightened them out and cut them in half to cover both the small and medium flower dies.

here are the steps and results.


















The fun and possibilities are endless...

Have a great time and make each flower your OWN...

Happy Crafting!
Liz

OMG Liz, this is a terrific idea! Thanks a lot for sharing it with us. I will go buy some of those black and white cupcake liners tomorrow morning since in the evening have a crop with my friends and will wow them with your tip. (of course I will give you credit...)!!!
