Roses are Red

But, in this case they are Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals.  I’ve been playing with the Spiral Flower die again today.  I’ve come up with two more variations on how the die can be used.  I’ll share one with you today and hope to get a video shot tomorrow so that I may share the other variation with you.

It was 50 degrees out today!!!  It’s been so cold this winter.  So even though it was overcast and then rainy, it feels like there is hope that Spring is on the way.  Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t want it to be 50 degrees everyday because then my fruit trees bloom too early.  Those little sneak peeks of the season to come are good enough.

In the meantime, I play with flowers — specifically the Spiral Flower die today.  The outcome was this lovely box.

Gift Box with Rose embellishment



I used one of the Decorative Window Gift Boxes #132146 and covered it with paper from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack #132996.








Top of Giftbox with Rose embellishment





Here’s just the top of the box with the cluster of roses and rosebuds.  The rosebuds were my “discovery” today.  I think they add a nice touch to this grouping.

And, here’s a close up of the rose embellishment.  Isn’t it lovely?  Now scroll on down to watch a quick video, less than 3 minutes, and learn how to make these sweet rosebuds using the Spiral Flower die.









I’ve already shared four ways to use the Spiral Flower die.  The fifth is on the way and my goal is a minimum of six ways to use this die.  It’s only $17.95.  So, go purchase it so that you will be able to make these items when you are creating.
