Eileen Hull Flowers Red, White & Beautiful! Happy 4th!

Flowers for the 4th or any summer picnic!



I could see these made for baby showers, bridal showers, receptions or just for fun!

First you must have this AWESOME die from Eileen Hull. It is a must have. You can make flowers so many different ways with it, but this is the way I choose to do it this time.

You will need:

Eileen Hull/Sizzix die Sizzix Bigz Die - Flowers, 3-D #2


Small_657118You can get it HERE 




Eileen Hull 3pk-lovely-labels-set You can get that HERE
Paint or ink spray
Stamens
coffee filters
wire
Glue Dots® Pop up
Seam binding
Tim Holtz Rub on
Jar
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher

1.First you will cut out your coffee filters from the Flowers 3D #2 die

2.You will then dye them-just spray or insert into bowl with paint/water mixture. Squeeze out excess water and lay them on paper towel to dry

   The white ones just wet and lay out to dry 





3. Once petals are dry. Take 3 stamens and fold in half



4. Place them in the middle of 5 flowers



5. Twist the bottom of flower with stamens



6. Then turn your flower over and using a Tiny Attacher (Tim Holtz's stapler)
    staple the bottom. Then fluff flower to your liking



7. Easy peasy attaching with Glue Dots® Pop ups. I just wrapped the wire with the Glue Dots® and then adhered the back of the flowers to the wire.



As you see here, just take the bottom flower and attach it to the Glue Dot® and it holds beautifully.



Here is my 4th of July flowers and my favorite ever Tim Holtz's tag that I have done!

Which gave me the inspiration for my tag to adhere to my jar. I used the Lovely Labels die by Eileen Hull and die cut a piece of water color paper. I then swiped my Fire Brick Distress ink and added a paintbrush of water across it. Then repeated for the Blue. I used Faded Jeans Distress ink. I also colored my seam binding the same way. Add a Tim Holtz Rub on to the tag and wrap around the jar to finish it off.


Don't forget that each month on Eileen Hull's blog there is a challenge and there is a prize to be won!

HINT........... awesome prizes!
