SAS Make n'Take - Paper Calla Lilys

So last night and today I've been having my February SAS... you saw the samples during the week of the ten different cards... and as promised I wanted to show you the calla lilys I prepared as the Make n'Take... think they will be just awesome to have for Spring cards and Mother's Day.... yet another idea I got from Debbie Hendersen's blog.....

Make n’Take – Paper Calla Lilys

First cut 3 Ornament Punches in Whisper White, and 3 Small Oval Punches in Daffodil Delight

Cut off the tops of each ornament as shown below:

Using a More Mustard, sponge all edges of each punched item on both

Next snip off a little piece at the end of each small oval as shown below.

Position one of the oval on top of the ornament punch to see how this will fit together:

Using your Bone Folder, hold one of the pieces in your hand holding one edge with your fingers and running your Bone Folder on the other edge, drag the bone folder across several times to loosen up the fibers. As you complete this on both sides, the paper becomes softer and will start to curl on each side

Then, using your small yellow oval, curl it up and glue the long ends together, glue to center of ornament punch shape. Glue the white shape over the yellow shape. It should end up looking like a cone as shown below:

Using the Pillow Box Die, cut one. To make the pillow box match the card, cut a piece of Daffoldil Delight and glue to Pillow Box. Next cut a small square in Whisper White and run it through my Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder. The third layer is Close to Cocoa punched with the Scallop Circle Punch and the dots are created with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder. Notice the 3 Calla Lily's that have been created:

To create the leaves, cut strips of Old Olive 1/2" wide by about 3" long.

You will be snipping the ends once everything is glued together so the length doesn't have to be exact.

Using your paper snippers, cut the ends to form leaves as pictured below.

Using Old Olive Ink, sponge both sides of the leaves:

Using your Bone Folder, grasp the square end of your leaf in one hand and slide the Bone Folder the remainder of the length to soften and release fibers from the cardstock. You'll notice the ends of your leaves start to curl as shown below. Apply TomBow glue to your leaves, leaving about an inch at the top of the leaves without glue:

Glue one leaf to each side of one of your calla lily's and also glue where they meet on the bottom.

Add another calla lily to the other side of the first one you just glued,
add another leaf to the outside edge, repeat for the other side
until you have 3 calla lily's glued in place:

Now you are ready to cut the bottom part of your leaves.
Cut so that you leave about an inch of leaf stalk from the bottom of the calla lily's.
Round the edges like you did the tops

This is what your leaves should look like on the bottom.
Sponge with Old Olive ink on the edges that you just snipped:

Assemble your pillow box: Add TomBow glue to the center of your scallop circle:

Press and hold into place for about a minute. Add a bow to the center:

What a wonderful Spring gift for Easter or Mother’s Day…

……… or just because!!
