Monthly Kits and Much More

In the gorgeous May kit this month was a sheet of American Craft paper from the dear Lizzy line I fell in love with. There are oodles of cute flowers begging to be cut out. There are lovely on their own, but I decided to dress mine up with some thread and stickles. This takes about 5 minutes and its super easy.

What you will need:
Flowers cut from AC dear Lizzy paper
Paint Brush
Threaded Needle
Cut your flower from the AC dear Lizzy paper
1. With your needle, poke a hole at the bottom edge of one of the little circles.
2. Turn over flower (backside) and thread your needle through the hole, leaving a little tail on the back.
3. Tape down the tail and turn flower back over (front side)
4. Leaving a 1/16 space, thread needle to the back of the flower, being careful not to pull the thread tight leaving a little loop on the top of the flower

5. Keep repeating until your flower is filled with as many little loops as you like. Trim thread and secure to the back with tape.
6. With your paintbrush in hand, squeeze a line of stickles on the end of the paintbrush
7. Paint the stickles all over your flower, the loops take the stickles well too, so be generous with this step.
8. Allow stickles to dry, shape leaves and flowers if you’d like, and you have a pretty dressed up flower.
 You can use these same techniques to enhance your journal die cuts too.
Hope you have a happy scrappy day!
Don't forget, today is reveal day AND the May card kit is in the store!
