Bridesmaid Papers Lace punch flower

I'm back after a couple of extremely busy days of classes, craft trip and an evening out to watch my little Great-Niece in her first performance with her dance school. She is learning Ballet and Tap and loves it. It was the first time she has been on stage and she is only 6 so she made us proud that she didn't lose her nerve.

So all in all I have had no time to craft until today. I have made a little gift box and card this morning with no stamping apart from the sentiment. The flower is one I have seen at a blog called Stampin with Tami. To make the flower you use strips of cardstock punched out along one edge and then you attach those strips to a punched out circle. I love the vintage style look to these and made them in two different sizes, one for the card and one for the box. The cardstock is Chocolate Chip and the gorgeous "bridesmaid" designer paper which I have sponged with Close to Cocoa ink and then rubbed off the excess ( the shiny part of the design resists the ink) This makes a nice standby gift set for a last minute birthday present if needed.

I have my craft club here tomorrow so I'm off to work on a small project idea for them to play with at the meeting.
