a “Wicked” challenge!

Well, I must say that I am in full Halloween mode now (OK, I have been for a while)! And this week you can win some goodies from Creative Cuts and More just by playing along with the Belli Challenge blog:

The theme is Halloween and I used the witch and spider die cuts from Creative Cuts and More to make these spooky cards. You can find the Spooky bingo cards in the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff shop. Here is how to make the pleated (I want to call the ruffed because the remind me of the neck ruffs queens used to wear in the middle ages) flower I used on the wicked card. Here’s how:

After you glue the edges together you need to squirt a dab of glue in the middle and hold it until it cools.

I placed my punched circle right over the still hot glue. If you prefer not to have a center be sure to glue from the back.

I will warn you that these are lumpy, they are very sturdy too but I don’t think it wise to mail them in a standard envelope. I’d hand deliver them or mail them in a box. They would be great to send in a in a boxed gift, such as a care package, too as they are lightweight but fun and sure to bring a smile.

don’t forget that we have out big Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop on Friday! Get ready to be inspired with all of the ways you can use die cuts, and don’t forget to play along with Belli Challenge for your chance to win some for free đŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by and till next time happy crafting!

  1. These are wicked cool girl! Really awesome. Thanks for the mini tutorial. I love to hear/see how others make their projects. I use Elmers glue instead of hot glue. I hope my pleated flowers hold up!

  2. I think I’m going to give these rosettes another try. I tried them before with red line tape, and they fell apart. I just couldn’t get them to stay together no matter what I did, so I gave up. Now I’m going to dig out my glue gun and try them again. Thanks for the idea!
