SSI: Create a Flower

Here's a quick and sweet card for you featuring a flower made from the Elastic Ruffle trim. I used to make similar flowers with the pom-pom trim we used to carry, so it was natural for me to come up with this one. I simply rolled the elastic trim and set the bottom in a puddle of hot glue. I love how the ruffles look, they really give character to the flower. I happened to have the punched out hexagons in the brushed gold card stock sitting on my desk and they made their way onto my card.  I'm really loving the sequin trim for adding a little sparkle to my projects too.

Below I've added a little info graphic that will hopefully demonstrate how to make this flower if you need more instruction on how to go about making your own. For another project using this flower see the mini album I made in this post. Make sure you check over at SSInk for more handmade flower inspiration. Happy Stamping!
