Top Tip Challenge 33 and a Tutorial from me...

Good Morning Top Tip Tuesday Challenge time is here!

Get yourself a cuppa this morning as I have a fun little tutorial for you and your gonna want to have a go its sooooo easy and fun

This weeks Challenge at Top Tip Tuesday Challenge is Flower Frenzy
 and a tutorial from me!

So here goes this is something I wanted to do for a while as I saw some cute mini flowers and wanted to buy some but they did not come in the colours I wanted so I tried cutting down flower I had but they didn't look to good,

Then I tipped out my card candy to look for some colours as I can mine all mixed up
and look at what I saw, can you see it the 6 candy's that look like a flower at the front.

well I had to use glossy accents didn't I ???

so you answer yes right?
Here is a little tutorial to show you what I did

I have used 5 to 7 candy's per flower and some glossy accents and 1 x 1mm candy raiser.
Start by gluing the first 2 candy's together.
then add each one to the centre
keep adding candy's around the outside

yours should be something like this

now make as many as you want!
place a foam raiser in the centre
 and add a contrasting colour
 See told ya they were easy...
So here's my card
Here's another little Tip too!
Cut the edge off your punched border to create a different look.
OK so here are a few challenges I want to join in with
