Punch Flower Roses

How precious does a scrapbook page need to be?




I think that I may have found the reason why I don't get very many pages done. I found this fabulous paper rose tutorial created by Abi Bundy. (click here) It gave me the look I was striving for...a very precious "pop" for a Tinkerbell page. I will post the completed page when it is finished. But in the meantime I wanted to show you what consumed my time at our last open night. It took me a couple of tries to get the roses to look the way I wanted but once you get the hang of it, watch out...you'll be putting roses everywhere. The roses dried firm and do not crunch under pressure. I would protect them though if you are mailing them out.
So, this got me thinking....what is the most artistic or time consuming or "I just lost my mind on this" project that you have created? I know that I am not the only one out there that likes to create that "just perfect" project. :)

This is gorgeous! My most time-consuming, I-don't-care-how-long-this-takes project would have to be a cup card I created:
