Stampin' with Kelly this week at KL SNS DT blog

Well, it's more like embellishin' with Kelly this week
(since there isn'tany stampin' involved) . . .

I have a couple of ideas for creating flowers and some ideas on how to use the new shabby vintage seam binding that will soon be available at KL Stampin N Scrappin
So stick around and check out the photos below. . .
I hope you find them interesting, too.

#1 -- For pinwheel flowers, I started with 2 different strips of Lemonade paper
from Basic Grey 6 x 2 inches, then used decorative
scissors for the sides (scallops, pinking scissors, etc).

Fan fold the paper and pinch the sides in (see 2 photos below).
I used 3M double sticky tape to hold the sides together.

Lastly, embellish them with ribbon, hemp or twine and buttons

#2 -- For pleated ribbon/seam binding (in this case).
Starting with a somewhat blank canvas.
You can actually just use the 3M tape and put a strip across,
then fold the seam binding back and forth so you get a pleated look, or . .

in this case, I used a little hand stitching, folding the seam binding back and forth
and handsewing through the pleats, then pull it tight for more puckering
or loose for less puckering and more layers.

Adhere to your card with double sticky 3M tape or glue dots.

#3 -- For ribbon roses using seam binding . . .

Start with a 1-inch circle punched from card stock or chipboard,
use double sticky tape on the front and then a little around the edges on the
back to tuck in the fabric/seam binding.  Twisting and rolling the
seam binding while circling around the center.  Go around the edges to hide the
chipboard/card stock.  Then tape the loose end down to the back.

Add a button to the center if you wish and punched leaves
or create your own with an oval punch and trim to a point.

Thanks for dropping by KL SNS design team blog and spending some time Stampin'
and Embellishin' with Kelly today.  Hope you stop by again for more
tutorials from the design team.

Inky Hugs and Happy Stampin'!
