Spinning Owl card

The challenge over at A spoon full of sugar this week was simply to create a free style card.  I used my owl that I created when I made my Yarn Owl tutorial. I so thought he deserved his own project!

(It is kraft paper, I promise its not olive green...)

This is how my spinning owl card works!

I hope you´ll ignore the bad quality, as I filmed this using my photo camera and a stack of Distress inks as a tripod...

Folded flower tutorial!

I have used this flower on loads of different projects. What is great about it is that you cn use all different materials; like paper, ribbons, lace, fabric +++

My tut is done using cardstock. I have used a border punch on the edge to create a softer feel but this is not necessary. The only thing that I think is importaint is that the paper strip is 1" wide at the most narrow part of the strip, and 12" long. This gives you a nice round shape. The strip used in this tutorial is shorter, but it makes it more difficult to create a round shape. If you change the width and the length proprtionally, I think you will avoid  this problem though :-)

After cutting a 1"x12" strip of paper (+ width of scallop), i just crunch it up between my fingers.

Just let it go on your table and you end up with something like this :-)

Pull it out and start making folds from one end.

 I use my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to staple as I go...


Doing that will leave you with this (as you can see, my strip was a bit to short so it got kind of scrunched  up). Now you can ink up the edges, use glimmer mist or spritz, or whatever you can think of.. (Its also really pretty to stamp the strip first, so that the cardstock get some pattern)

  This is my finished flower. I´ve added a vintage (real) Mother-of-Pearl button with a brad on top.

I hope you like it!00
