Do you love gold as much as I do right now? If you do... you are going to LOVE what our Amanda Coleman made for today's post. It's so pretty and could be used for wedding favors or a really special birthday gift. Amanda said this:
"When I first held a piece of gold foil paper from Chickaniddy Crafts I just about fell out of my seat. It is the perfect weight for die cutting and looks like real gold. I knew the gold foil paper would make fabulous flowers, so I put a few together and then waited for an idea to come together. I ended up pairing it with burlap to make a trendy wedding favor. To make the bag, I stitched together a couple pieces of burlap. Pretty easy".
"To make the entire flower embellishment, I die cut and assembled the flower and attached the die cut leaves. I wrote the sentiment on a strip of paper and combined it with several coordinating strips of ribbon. I attached everything with a regular ol' staple and adhered it to the back of the flower".
"I secured the individual petals of the flower together with a rhinestone brad. To add dimension to the flower, I gently curled back the petals with a pair of craft tweezers. I chose the sentiment for richer or poorer because I thought it summed up the contrast between the burlap and gold. Have a great day! Amanda"
Umm... isn't this so pretty? Thanks Amanda for out doing yourself once again. I think we should officially start calling her AMANDA THE AMAZING! What do you all think?!
