Tips: I used some gold glitter on the Christmas ornaments, and some sequins

real leaves. I also used the tag from the flower 
petals for the photo mat for added embellishing.

Dare 2 Take The Plunge

And Janis has created a fun tutorial teaching how to create flowers using our wraps!

1. Cut your Denim Wrap the same length with the yellow trim.
I used a glue gun to adhere the yellow trim on the edge of the denim trim.

2. On a 2" circle, pleat and adhere the denim wrap 
as shown until you cover the whole circle.

3. Add another layer with the vertical designed wrap.

4. Top if off with a button and bling and your flower is done!

And of course she's created a layout using the adorable flower.

Designer Tip: I cut the newsprint wrap in half lengthwise to make the flowers.
For the pleated flower, I used a gathering stitch along one side 3/4 of the length
of one of the halves. For the roses, I folded the strips in half lenghtwise,
Folded and stitched the bottom as I shaped the flower
