A Step by Step LO #3

you will need
Cardstock
2 pieces P/P
one that has some sort of floralish design suitable for cutting out
and one plainish piece of P/P
2 saucepan lids one a bit smaller than the other
you can use plates or bowls as long as one is a bit smaller than th other
some flowers
to make the flower that Kathie did a Tutorial on this week
foam tape or dots
Ink
a good pair of cutting scissors
alphas for Title

#step 1
on the back side of the plainer P/P
trace around the biggest saucepan lid

then place the smaller saucepan lid in the centre of the circle you have already traced
and trace around it

#step 2
cut your circle out
ink edges

#step 3
cut a piece of your floralish P/P 8 and a half cm x 26cm
tear along one long edge and one short edge
ink edges

#step 4
place the 2 pieces of P/P on your cardstock to look like this
stick down

stick your photo down

#step 5
Make a flower
you can find the tutorial
HERE
cut out some flowers from your floralish P/P
then arrange on your LO
to look something like this or an arrangement you are happy with

#step 6
when you are happy with how you have it arranged
stick down using the foam tape on some of the flowers


add your title and some journaling if you wish
All done

If you are doing a girly LO you can use Kindy Glitz
to highlight the flowers to add a bit of sparkle
Because I did a Male LO I didn't add any bling and glitz
