Roses

This is the second project we made at Stamp Club this month. Since I was doing Valentine projects I figured it was time to show how to make these roses. The good thing is these roses don't cost $80 a dozen just because it's Valentine's.

Although, it would be the cost of a Big Shot die and some paper. Oh, and a Big Shot if you don't already own one. The Table Settings Die is $42.95 but it doesn't wither in a week so it's a purchase/investment that just keeps on giving! The die also has numerous other shapes. I used this die to make my Merry Christmas banner last month.

These roses are great, you could even use fabric or felt and put them on a headband or make them into a pin. For this project we put them on a matchbox and put some candy in the boxes. These would look great for a party favor at a wedding or shower. I guess I just love the elegance of these roses.

Ok, I am off to try and make a Valentine card with non-traditional Valentine's colors. Let's see how that goes.... I guess you'll find out on my next post.

Love the roses! I haven't tried making them before. After preparing for tomorrows class I may just have to give them a try. TFS! Tonya
