Art Foam Flowers Tutorial

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. I have been playing with some art foam, and I came up with some different ways of creating flowers using one die.
These three flowers were created using only two petals. But by making one alteration, three different flowers were created.
The above flower uses the largest petal from the die, die cut three times. It was shaped by scrunching the tops and embellished by using stamens in the centre.
The final two flowers use the smaller petal from the die. Their construction is the same except for the shaping of the petals.                   
 Another variation of flower from DIY Flora Gerbera die.

Below is a video tutorial explaining how each of these flowers was made.


Once you have created these beautiful flowers, it's always wonderful to incorporate them into your projects.

Kid's Room Decor Projects

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing some room decor ideas. Over on the Kaisercraft blog, the DT are sharing some ideas for kid's room decor and I had so many! I was really inspired by the boho papers from this months paper collections (which I love) and I have also used the boho theme in my classroom this year, so I was really excited to create in this way again.

I created my own template using Silhouette Studio so that I could easily cut and layer all of my paper pieces and position everything into place.

My first project is the hot air balloon which is based around an embroidery hoop and can easily be displayed on the wall or on an easel as shown.

I then decided to alter some wooden cubes. I mixed some paints to create my base colour before cutting my papers and gluing them on. I fussy cut the animals and used alpha stickers and each cube face. These two projects would be great in a little boys room.

 My second project uses the same template, however it is more 'girly.' I have used lace, flowers and pearls.
