Ready for another Flamingo Four? This month, three other designers and I each worked with these products:
1. Graphic 45 patterned paper - "Well Groomed"
2. Tim Holtz Giant Tag
3. Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue buttons
4. pearl trim
The first thing I did when I saw the supplies was to turn the patterned paper over and check out the B-side, as the A-side is totally not my style. Fortunately, the B-side is! I could definitely use the patterned paper and the tag on a scrapbook layout.
But what about the buttons and the trim? The buttons are really chunky and I don't like putting bulky items like those on scrapbook pages. So I started thinking about cards. Hmm... what to make?
Inspiration struck. I cut into the paper (always a little scary when you only have one piece and you HAVE to use it for an assignment), did some folding, added a button, and accented with Stickles. Then I headed out into the garage, where I put on the shop glasses, grabbed a hammer, and started pounding on the pearl trim.
I removed about 1/4 of the beads on each end of the trim, headed back to the craftroom, and glued everything together. When I was done, I had this:
The "purse" is fully lined... with the scraps left over from December's Flamingo Four!
Curious about what the other designers made? Head on over to Flamingo Scraps to see their projects. As usual, my project is COMPLETELY different from what the other designers created!
