JustRite Weekly Challenge & Spellbinders

This week is Spellbinders week on the Scrap-Mart blog. Everyday one of our DT members is posting a project created with Spellbinders products. Today is my day.

I love participating in the JustRite challenges and since Spellbinders is their sponsor this week, it's double duty for me. ;) This week's challenge is a Technique make your own flower embellishments. Easy enough, right?!

My niece's baby shower was last weekend and I wanted to make her something special so I decided to try my hand at making a corsage.

The new Donna Salazar Carnation Creations set was just what I needed to create the flower! I cut multiple layers of each size from some Melissa France Crepe Paper and secured them with a brad. Using my hands I crumpled and "lifted" the flower petals 'til it was full then I inked the edges all around with blue ink. After I had enough ink to satisfy me I added the tulle, pearls and leaves. The bottom was super simple! I cut kraft cardstock using the smallest Nested Pennants, then topped them off with the Banner Basics One which was embossed and inked after cutting. Then, using my JustRite Curlz font, I stamped the letters for Mom and cut them with my Small Circle Nesties. I layered them on some ribbon pieces and secured it all to the back of the corsage with hot glue and covered it with felt.

Here's a closer peek

I really love the way it turned out and my niece did too. The best thing is now she has a special keepsake from the shower that won't go bad. ;)
