4 - Hilda.
Congratulations ladies please feel free to copy and paste the winners badge from the side bar.
For my dt piece I made some 3D flowers
The flowers are very easy to make and you will need a small scallop circle punch or Nestability die, some brads, a pokey tool and some coloured paper.
Take a look at this picture and I will explain all
From the top left hand corner - punch out 8 circles with your punch, scrunch them up tightly and then unravel them. Place them all on top of one another, pierce a hole in the middle and secure with a brad. Then start to scrunch the petals back up around the brad. The brad will be completely hidden and you should end up with a flower like the one in the bottom right hand corner of the pic.
If you put these flowers on a card it will make it very difficult to put in an envelope - I must admit the I only use them for special occasions where I can hand deliver my card. However I always make a pretty box to put the card in  - like so

Hope you've enjoyed my little piece this week - can't wait to see all your challenge entries! Don't forget that next week we will be announcing our monthly winner, so what are you waiting for - get creating!- Jacqueline.
