For those of you who don't have all the fancy die cutters and punches but really want to make your own flowers, here's a tip on how to cut your own 5, 6 & 8 petal flowers ANY size and shape you want.
NOW FOR THE 6 PETAL FLOWER
Follow steps 1 & 2 as above and then move onto step 3 from here
Step 3 - Find the centre of the base of the triangle and fold your corners up at an angle to form a cone shape as shown
Draw the shape of the petal you'd like and cut out with a scissors
Open the fold and you have your 6 petal flower
8 PETAL FLOWER
Again, use step 1 and 2 from above and then follow from here
fold the right corner over to meet the left corner thus forming a smaller triangle
Take the top layer from the left corner and fold it up to meet the opposite corner
Turn over and do the same on the other side forming a concertina fold
Draw the shape of your petal and cut out with a scissors
Open the folds and you have your 8 petal flower
Now how easy was that!!!!!! Hope you enjoy!!

So after browsing the net for some Perfect pearls tips and techniques I was in the mood to play around with some of my own. I thought it would be fun to combine some Perfect Pearls embossing with some UTEE. I wasn't up to making a full LO so I made this Christmas tag.
Once that was dried I embossed using my script stamp with some white perfect pearls. I then applied my Santa image over the embossed script bg and inked the edges of the image and tag with some walnut stain distress ink.
Pointsettia Tutorial for the bloom to add the final Christmassy touch.
The alphas are white Making Memories mini alphas which I painted one light coat of antique gold creative inspiration paint over and then outlined with some gold paint liner.
This is my first ever tag and I think I really like the idea of being able to play around with new techniques on tags instead of an entire LO.
