Tissue Flowers

A while back, Lisa Pace had a great tutorial for some tissue flowers made from some old sewing patterns and flower dies. I loved the idea, so I've been making some of my own! I don't have the flower dies, so I've been handcutting circles. To make the flowers on this project, I also spritzed them with Sherbet Glimmer Mist and added some glitter. (I use a spray adhesive for that.) I've made these flowers for several other projects and love how they turned out.






I used Webster's paper on here. I also used some Tattered Angels chipboard that was spritzed with Sherbet and Meadow Glimmer Mists. All in all, it will be a fun Teacher Valentine set.

Speaking of fun, there will be lots of fun at Label Tulip this month. They are turning 2 and Cathy has lots up her sleeve. Here's your invitation!



Hope to see you there!
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!

I love those flowers!
I have been making some with recycled tissue from gifts, but it never occured to me to use my 100's of patterns that are just sitting in a box somewhere. Thanks for the great idea!
