I found some darned cool eyelet flowers on a bunch of cards over at Snappy Stampin’ w/ Arielle. Aren’t hers adorable? Looks like she’s practiced a bit, and has some fabulous eyelet edge punches that I definitely covet!
My first flower was pretty much the equivalent of eyelet flower FAIL.
Actually, it almost looks OK in picture format.. Maybe I’m too hard on myself ;-) But I tell ya, that flower that’s sitting on my craft desk, it’s definitely very lop-sided, with a couple pieces that got torn in the folding/gluing process.
Ready for take 2? I like it much better because escaped the whole lopsided challenge thing.
Did I mention that I heart flowers with buttons in the centre? Or buttons in general? Flowers in general too! These are pretty squee-worthy! Now I just have to find a million more great punches. Looks like I may have to visit the local Stampin’ Up! lady.
Oh and hey, this all stemmed from a really great tutorial over at Julie’s Stamping Spot. Check it out! You’ll be popping out eyelet punch flowers in no time!
