Hello, wow Friday has come around quickly this week! The challenge at JAI this week is to Add a Flower. The inspiration for my first item came from my umbrella which I got a couple of years ago at the Stampin' Up! convention held in Canberra. Surprise, surprise that it was raining in Melbourne last week and when I put my umbrella up, it reminded me that I had meant to make something based on it. So here we are, nearly 2 years later
Another Petal Cone box, however this one I hand cut by tracing around another my friend had sent me. I did change the colours up a bit, though. Here I've used Pink Pirouette, Going Gray and Baja Breeze cause I needed to use the pre-cut scallop 1/2 circles I was given to help disguise the slightly dodgy cutting. I also wanted to add a flower to the top but I couldn't work out how it would close so I dug out my Crop-O-Dile, that I have used just twice to add some eyelets and used a piece of Pretty In Pink tafetta ribbon to close it.
And then, instead of keeping my spare to use as a pattern, I decided to make that one up too!
This one was cut from Melon Mambo and also has Pink Pirouette scallop circles. The edging is from the Ice Cream Parlour DSP & Quick Accents SAB pack (US/CAN only) and the ribbon is from the Ice Cream Parlour Ribbon & Buttons SAB pack (US/CAN only). My friend looks after me so well, sending me extras she had earnt. The Pom Pom Trim is from the current Australian Autumn/Winter mini catalogue. Boy, the Crop-O-Dile had its biggest work out of its life, adding more eyelets for the ribbon closure. It's the most it's been used since I got it 3 or so years ago *blush*.
Cute, hey? I think I'll fill them with some choccies for the Nana's for Mother's Day!
Be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with, there's some gorgeous inspiration for you.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
