Wrapping Paper Flower


Been sleeping very late every night recently. Gonna look like a panda soon :P Also, coffee doesn't help keep me awake. I just drink it cos I love the aroma and taste. But it doesn't really perk me up... yikes!


Anyways, over at 365 Cards, it's Day 122 now and the challenge was titled, 'It's a Wrap'. Hmmmm.... I read through the post and it says to use wrapping paper on the card. Gosh, I don't really have wrapping paper in the house.

And then, I remembered the 'used' wrapping paper I saved from being thrown into the bin. One of my colleagues' birthday gift was wrapped in this beautiful purple papery wrapper (I don't know what's it called. It's soft, papery and a little translucent).


So, I went in search for it, found it and hand cut the flower shapes out, inked the corners of the flowers, pieced them together and sewed the button on :)


I kinda like how it turned out!

Code : HB0024
Status : Available!
Price : RM 14.90

I think I might make more of these flowers to use for future cards :)

Beautiful. I think that is tissue paper that you used. I almost thought I was going to have to use newspaper for giftwrap on mine til I found the Christmas papers.

I like both the card and the first picture! Tastefully done.

Holy smokes! You hand cut those flowers?! Gorgeous!!!!

Quirky said...

yeah, hand cut them cos I don't have any punchers or cutter >.<

But I guess if you layer enough, even if you don't cut very well, it'll still look nice :P
