Posts Tagged ‘Summer Scrap Camp’
During my last week of Summer Scrap Camp <<sniff, sniff>>, I wanted to give the kids a chance to use what we’ve learned all summer to put together some projects of their own. And since we were back to having all girls for this session (unlike last time), we were a-okay to do flowery projects again.
I put out felt, fleece, hot glue and a variety of Big Shot Dies, and let the girls go to work. We probably could have had a short lesson on how to cut fabric efficiently to create as few wasted pieces as possible, but oh well, we all had a good time
We also used the Flower Folds Die to create some Back-To-School treats with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (check those out).
Kayleigh’s flower here really impressed me with its perfect color combination. What an eye for color! She cut out the flower layers with the Flower Folds Die (3 flower sizes starting with the smallest one) and layered them with hot glue.
The girls created flowers for all kinds of embellishments–hair clips, key chains, backpack tags. But my favorite was the bookmark version. Just make the flower of your choice, then attach it to the end of a 10″ piece of wide ribbon. The ribbon tail marks your place in the book and the flower hangs over the front as decoration!

One of my favorite parts of Convention is trading ideas with other Demonstrators. We like to call it “swapping” and we swap everything from cards to scrapbook pages to 3-D items.
Stampin’ Up! has a fun evening event planned for us with a Flower Power theme, so of course I had to come up with a fun “flower power” type item to swap! The Fleece Flowers I’ve shared recently are great (check out that Video Tutorial) but I wanted to come up with something a little quicker.
Hence the “Faster & Fresher Fleece Flower” was born! These little flowers are created using the Scallop Circle Die. The steps are simple:
- Cut a Scallop Circle from polar fleece fabric using the Big Shot Die Cut Machine
- Cut the Scallop Circle into a spiral, about 5/8″ wide all the way to the center
- Use hot glue to attach a 2″ fleece circle to the back of the spiral (cut with the Big Shot Circles #2 Die)
- Use hot glue to attach leaves cut from the Big Shot Island Floral Die
But I can do one better than just directions and photos. Here’s a Video Tutorial that I created to teach you how to make these simple flowers using fabric and your Big Shot Die Cut Machine.
