Getting my old tools out and dusting them off !!!!


I have been rooting round in my old paper crafting tools and came across my circle cutter ! I dusted it off and made one of the flowers i've learnt to make from my crafting (& cake eating ) buddy CLEO though mine doesnt seem to be as neat as hers !
OH and check out my Fiskars cutting mat its A3 size !!!!!!!!

If you fancy learning how to do this go over to Fiskarettes there i will show you how to make these with step by step instructions, These flowers are amazing when made up and you can use much prettier papers than i used for stunning looking flowers , i chose single sided Basic grey 'dasher' paper 'tree skirt' so you could see the contrast better for instructions . The flower edges can be inked too for great results.
