Michelle’s Flower Class Projects – Part 2

Yesterday, we looked at five of the fabulous flower projects that my Demo Team member Michelle Hoover showcased at one of her recent classes.  You can see those projects here.

Today, we're looking at the five remaining projects! 

Hoover flowers - bird punch sunflower

Bird Punch Sunflower

Use the Bird Punch to punch out 15 of the bird wings to create this fun sunflower embellishment.  Michelle added some lines with markers on each petal.  The center is a 1-1/4" Circle Punch that's textured with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder

Also features: Perfect Polka Dot Impressions Folder, Stripes Impressions Folder, Chocolate Chip Dotted Scallop Ribbon, and Oval Punch.

Shabby Ribbon Flower

This is a new one for me!  You create it by folding the Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in half length-wise, then run a straight stitch with Linen Thread along the edges.  Then, you snip along the fold every 1/4".  Draw the stitch tight and tie it off, then play with the ribbon until it frays a bit.  Neat-O!  See a tutorial from Jenny Ingerick: Shabby Ribbon Flower Tutorial.

Also features: Flower Fest stamps, Flirtatious Designer Series Paper doilies, Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Jumbo Brads.

Heated Satin Ribbon Flower

This is one of my all-time favorites!  You snip along the edge of a 5/8" Satin Ribbon about every 1", then heat the edges with a Heat Tool before wrapping it around a circle punch base.  You can see more details on how it's done at this post.

Also features: Notably Ornate stamps, Elements of Style stamps, Word Play stamps, White Embossing, Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Antique Brads, Square Lattice Impressions Folder.

Ornament Punch Rose

The petals of this stunning rose, as well as the leaves, are made from the Ornament Punch.  Using a Bone Folder, Michelle sculpted the petals and layered them on a circle punch base.  You can see how in the Ornament Punch Rose Tutorial at FrenchieStamps.

She added the rose to a Fancy Favor Box Die.

Hoover flowers - accordion fold

Accordion Fold Flower

This elegant medallion was created with Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper and the Simply Scored Tool.  On a 12" strip of paper, just score every 1/4", fold the paper back and forth, and adhere the ends. 

Also features: Just Believe stamp, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Circles #2 Die, Brushed Gold card stock.

Thanks, Michelle, for sharing your beautiful projects!

This weekend, I'm attending a special stamping event hosted by top demonstrator Ronda Wade.  Several top demonstrators are scheduled to present, plus it sounds like there will be fun make & takes and prizes, just like a mini Stampin' Up! convention.  Can't wait!  I'll share more details when I return!
