the Spellbinders Designers line up. I’m currently an in-house Creative Designer here at Spellbinders and am super excited and honored to
be launching my new line, “Quite Contrary” in January. It is a line of trendy stamps with coordinating thin dies as well as steel rule dies for making crepe paper, tissue paper and fabric flowers. Art is my passion and I feel
fortunate to be able to have a job that allows me to create all day :). In this post, I
am going to show you how to create just one of my flowers but be watching for me to post further floral instructions so that you can
complete the entire project at the bottom of this post. Such a tease! Here is my Simply Anemone flower we will be making…
My whole intention was to create quick, easy and inexpensive flowers or,
if you want to be artsy then you can make them lengthy, expensive and detailed! Ha! Makes
perfect sense, right? Really, they are a lot of fun. You can make them as simple or complicated as you want. Again today, I will only showcase
supplies I used to make this entire decor piece but I also wrote a list of the supplies needed for just the flower:
diameter (Get them in the Christmas section now!)

2. Cut enough green tissue paper to cover ball and leave a tail to twist.

base and sliding it up the stem. Adhere in place. Because this part will not show on my home
decor project, I eliminated this step.
If you cut your flower from crepe paper, you can manipulate the petals a bit, especially if you die-cut them vertically to the folds of the paper.
Don’t want to forget to mention the other dies used in the deer head piece:
SR-039 Hydrangea Florets
SR-042 Pocketful of Posies
SR-043 Trailing Leaf & Vine
