C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Decoupage

This week over at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge -

The challenge is to create a piece of decoupage - I had just recieved my Bloom and Grow Decoupage book ( )and I have to say I was very impressed. Beautiful papers and texture (some are embossed) I also recieved the button/ribbon box - yum!

I have created some decoupaged flowers that clip over thank you notes - yes still making thank you's for Hope's Birthday pressies.

Very simple to do - added a little ink to edges of die-cuts - set pipecleaner through middle of flower with an eyelet. Bent pipecleaner back to create stem and tendril.

Cut a small notelet from Bloom and Grow co-ordinating paper. Shaped petals of flower with scissors and they easily slot over the top of notelet.
Look what you could win.....lots of goodies.......come play with us at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge
