Welcome Home

Hello everyone, Sarah here to share with you an adorable little

rusty birdhouse that I decorated with the gorgeous Donna Salazar

I created this house warming gift for a friend who, like
many people right now, is moving to a new home and I thought this spring themed house warming gift would be just perfect. I added some shimmer and shine by spritzing the pink cut out flower with the Pralines & Cream Smooch Spritz. Then, I used my Glue Gloss to add glue to the tips of the butterfly wings and also the centers of the rolled flowers in order to add a bit of sparkle with the Pralines & Cream Fairy Dust Glitter. Here are step-by-step instructions
for creating these quick and easy fringed rolled paper flowers.

1. Cut a thin strip of paper approximately 1/4" wide by 6" long.

2. Roll the strip of paper fairly tightly and ad adhesive to the endof the strip so the roll of paper does not unwind.

3. Use scissors to cut slits through the roll of paper from the center

out toward the edge. You will cut about 6-8 slits all the way around.

4. Fan out the flower where the slits were cut, this creates the look
of fringe. Finish the flower by adding an accent to the center.
