Mini Pom Poms Flower Tutorial


Hello my crafty friends!  Sadly, today is my last guest blogging post for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I have had so much fun working with their fantastic ribbons, laces and trims, and have been so inspired by the varieties!  Today I made a flower much like the last ones I shared, except the center is quite different.  I just took their Mini pom-poms, and rolled them up and woila!  
I love how they look in the center of a flower!!

The sentiment and frame are from the newly released Waltzingmouse Stamps set My Kind of Guy.  All the sentiments are individual making it easy to stamp with different colors and arrange how you want them!


For the gathered flower, I used White Netting and Wired Faux Burlap White.
I also added some Ric Rac Trim, and a wee bit of Claudia White Crochet Lace that's mostly covered by the image panel.


Here's how I made the flower center.
The Pom-Poms have a perfect edge for gluing, and depending on how you roll it, it can be flat, or have a lot of depth.

Here I added some Diamond Stickles to give it a bit of sparkle.  I think it even stands alone quite well.

Here's a card I made with the Pom-Pom Flower as the focus, using a quote from Our Daily Bread Designs' Stamp set Quote Collection three.  I also wrapped the card with some True Black Hemp from the Earthy Collection. The background is just a collage of Washi Tape.

That's it for me today, and this month.  
I'd like to thank Bonnie for inviting me to Guest Design for RRR this month.  Bonnie's a gem to work with and this has truly been a pleasure.  Thank you all, too, for your generous comments and support.  I felt very welcome over here!!
