Hi everybody! If you’re going to be catching up on this week’s blog posts over the weekend, make sure you check out my tutorial on the Some Odd Girl blog on making reusable stencils with Some Odd Girl cut files!
Here’s a card that I made with the stencil from the tutorial, featuring Some Odd Girl Stamps’ super sweet “Cookies N Milk” clear stamp set:
Hi, everybody! I’m up on The Greeting Farm blog today with a mini notepad cover tutorial! Stop by to get all the details on making this notepad cover!
Hi, Friends of the Farm! Suzanne here, and today I’m sharing a tutorial here and on The Greeting Farm blog on how to make roses out of something you may have in your pantry…coffee filters! With this technique, you’ll be making a garden of roses in no time!
My supply list:
- white coffee filters (I use 5-6 filters per flower)
- adhesive dots
- scissors/rolled flower die
- manual die-cutting machine
- alcohol-based marker and blending solution
While you can find rolled flower dies fairly easily, you can also make these if you don’t have one of the dies. I’ll show you both ways to make the flowers, and I’ll start with the non-die method!
Cut a circle out of a bundle of 5-6 coffee filters, folded in half. Your circle doesn’t have to be perfectly round. Mine usually come out in a more oval shape when I hand-cut them.
You can also use a rolled flower die in a die cut machine if you have one. I use my dies cutting sides down on top of the filters after folding them in half. You can see what they look like after they’re run through the machine.
I often color the coffee filters before die cutting them with the chisel end of an alcohol marker. I spray colorless blender solution on the filters and rub it in so that the solution soaks the ink and the paper.
